KABUKI ITOURYOUDAN  (HUDSON SOFT / RED)

ARCADE CARD CD-ROM (JAPANESE VERSION)

It can be stated that, back in 1995, the PC-ENGINE was dead for the videogames market. The Super Famicom release, some years before, had been a terrible thing for the PCE, but what actually killed it at all was the remarkable success of Sony Playstation.

At that time, NEC and Hudson Soft put their hopes on the Arcade Card, trying to find a way out on this dead-end situation. Among cool conversions of some SNK games, Hudson Soft (Red) also created a original fighting game, starred by the most popular character of famous series Far East of Eden (Tengai Makkyou), Kabuki Danjuro.

 

People use to think that Kabuki Itouryoudan (PCE/ACD) and Kabuki Klash (Neo-Geo) are the same game but, in fact, they´re completely different. Even without the stunning visual of Kabuki Klash, Kabuki Itouryoudan certainly has some of the most colored and detailed graphics ever made on a PCE fighting game.

 

The game plot isn´t that different from dozens of other fighting games: choose a character, smash all your opponents until you reach the final boss, a coarse devil guy, almost impossible to be beaten! :) But, with its extreme ability to make great games, Hudson Soft made of Kabuki Itouryoudan a terrific fighting game, with stunning graphics, an amazing soundtrack and an almost perfect gameplay!

  

Kabuki Itouryoudan is certainly one of the best fighting games for the PC-ENGINE, along with Asuka 120% Burning Fest, Flash Hiders and Street Fighter II´.
