  • This SNK Neo-Geo MVS cart. was published 23 years ago:

    Waku Waku 7 © 1996 Sunsoft.

    A hilarious parody of different styles of anime and video games featuring seven selectable characters and a nasty end boss! It's worth playing for the dialogue alone.

    TECHNICAL
    Runs on the SNK "Neo-Geo MVS" hardware.
    Game ID: 0225

    Players: 2
    Control: 8-way joystick
    Buttons: 4
    → [A] Quick punch, [B] Quick kick, [C] Strong punch, [D] Strong kick

    TRIVIA
    Released in November 1996.

    'Waku Waku' is Japanese onomatopoiea for sounds of excitement.

    The bonus stage battle against Bonus Kun, the Shotokan punching bag, is a parody of Ryu and Ken of "Street Fighter" fame. Watch him imitate all of their best moves! It also appears that Bonus Kun's music stage is a parody of 'The Theme of Ryu', which is, as the name implies, the theme music for Ryu in "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior".

    Pony Canyon released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Waku Waku 7 - PCCB-00215) on 21/08/1996.
