Now You Too Can Play The Terrible Akira Video Game!

In 1988, Taito released Akira, cash-in on the hugely-popular animated film of the same name. Just in case you were wondering if Japanese developers somehow made better movie adaptations in the 1980s, no, they did not. The game was terrible.

Still, that's mostly second-hand information, as most Westerners have never actually played the game, since it was never released in English.

It has now! A fan translation means you too can experience the drudgery of clicking around static screens on a Famicom (well, your PC).

You can grab it below.
