Name That Game

Today we are featuring an old SNES game with a wacky artistic flair from Japan. The game was made by Bandai in 1993 and was an Action platformer - 2 players. It was based on "a comic (manga) series created in 1959 (under the alternative title Hakaba no Kitarō (墓場鬼太郎, Hakaba no Kitarō?)) by Japanese cartoonist Shigeru Mizuki. It is best known for its popularization of the folklore creatures known as yōkai, a class of spirit-monster to which all of the main characters belong. It has been adapted for the screen several times, as animation, live-action, and video games."

Happy hunting.
