Fist of the North Star 3

Shinseikisouzou sei kenretsuden

The third Famicom game and the first of three dull Hokuto No Ken RPGs.

You play the role of Kenshiro in this 'Phantasy Star' style RPG. As you will have guessed all the text is in Japanese which makes everything pretty much impossible to understand unless you can read the language or can be bothered to trial and error your way through it. 

The battles are a primitive affair with the characters shown as static images. You choose what you want to do and who you want to do it to from several windows of Japanese text. The attacks are shown as pink circles which disfigure the recipients face. 

The graphics and music are pretty much what you'd expect from an old Famicom game. There is little to recommend it unless you are a die hard Fist Of The North Star fan.
