Fist of the North Star with Jordan Forbes (Shonen Flop)

Post apocalyptic mayhem. New societies and population groups popping up and insisting that they are living the right way. The power struggle between might and right. Giant weaponized vehicles storming across the desert sands. OK, maybe not that last one, but what do I know?

Good thing I have Jordan Forbes from Shonen Flop to help me out with a look at Fist of the North Star on NES. Listen in as we look at yet another game that should have been featured earlier in the run of the show but I just didn’t know it was based on a comic so we’re making up for it now.

Learn such things as:

  • Why did Nintendo of America even bring this game over here?
  • Where can I learn how to poke people to death?
  • Is this the first time I’ve found an excuse to mention Chrontendo on the show?
  • And so much more!

You can find Jordan on Twitter under the account for his podcast @ShonenFlopCast or on the Shonen Flop website.
