Electronic Gaming Monthly #45 and Super Play #21 both announced "SD Art of Fighting" as an upcoming Super Famicom game. Was it ever released under another name, or did it get canceled?

This Super Famicom game was actually released as SD Hiryū no Ken, part of the Flying Dragon franchise. The header of the snippet confirms this with the name of the studio that produced it (Culture Brain).
