China Warrior + Takahashi Meijin + a quartet of turtles = one awesome PC Engine commercial

True story: I’ve never played Hudson’s China Warrior (The Kung Fu in Japan).

I’m actually planning to right that wrong soon, but until that day arrives I’ll have to content myself by watching and re-watching the following commercial, which features, at one point, Takahashi Meijin and a quartet of toy turtles.

Hopefully it’s made clear to folks who understand Japanese why the “16 shots per second” star is shown, in a commercial that’s supposed to prompt gamers to run out and buy a side-scrolling brawler, sitting atop said reptiles?

  1. STILL better than most of the crap commercials we got in the US LOL

  2. Yes, you’re right about that, Byron. I mean, was there a single “good” TG-16 TV ad? I can’t remember one…
