Ranma ½ - Datou, Ganso Musabetsu Kakutou-Ryuu! is a one-on-one fighting game by Masaya and is the third in the trilogy for the PC Engine system. The story mode gets the player to control Ranma Saotome, a cursed boy who turns into a girl when hit with cold water. The games starts when Ranma and Happosai, the pervert grandmaster, spend some time in a traditional Japanese bath. Ranma knocks the old man down as he tries to climb the separation wall to have a peak at the girl's side. But Happosai doesn't give up that easily and splashes the poor boy who instantly turns into Ranma-girl. This event triggers the first of a long list of one-on-one fights featuring Happosai, Kodachi Kuno, Ukyo Kuonji, Ryoga Hibiki and so forth... Interestingly, each fight comes with its special sets of moves - Ranma can throw traditional kicks and punches, but also throw balloons against Ukyo Kuonji or change into Ranma-girl. Special moves can also be triggered by holding down the attack button for a short amount of time. Finally, a battle mode is included and gives two players the opportunity to compete against each other.
