NES Hokuto no Ken 2

Released on the 17th of April 1987, this is the second Hokuto no Ken game for the Famicom, and is an improvement over the dismal first effort. However, despite boasting better graphics and less glitches, the game is still seen as being a poor title, and overshadowed by many other great Famicom games available at the time. Based on the Hokuto no Ken 2 portion of the series, the early release of the game was well before the manga had finished (whilst the anime was only up to the fifth episode) and as such the game only covers the Imperial Capital story, although there is an extra fight against the Nameless Shura if a condition is met by the end of the game.
