Kato Chan & Ken Chan is a wacky side-scrolling platform game based on a popular Japanese variety show and featuring Kato Chan (Cha Kato) and Ken Chan (Ken Shimura). The story starts when Kato and Ken, both members of their own Detective Agency, receive an important phone call. A rich man has been kidnaped (or at least, this is what the American version says) and their mission is to find him and bring him back. The player can either control Kato or Ken, but both of them have the same kind of (wacky) abilities. They walk through stages, kick anything they see, get chased by craxy dogs, collect money to be used in strange slot machines... Humor here is weird and lowbrow, either Kato or Ken can fart at enemies, birds can drop turds at you, and toilets need to be used to refill their life bars.
Released on November 30, 1987 in Japan for 4900 Yen.
