Kung-Fu retrospective: Enter the third party | NES Works #012

Watch on Youtube

Youtube Video Description:

The very first third-party release for NES... mostly. Developed by Irem, based on an Irem arcade game, yet published by Nintendo in both Japan and the U.S., Kung-Fu is something of an edge case. Whatever the case, though, it sure did look awesome back in 1985, with its bold graphics and proto-fighting-game mechanics. (Yes, the title card says "Episode 11." It's not a flaw, it's a charm point.)
