(Ranma ½ - Toraware no Hanayome)
Ranma ½ Toraware no Hanayome is a digital comic by Masaya and is the second in the trilogy for the PC Engine system. However, unlike other games of the series, Ranma ½ Toraware no Hanayome is a digital comic which offers an exclusive and comical episode with all the familiar Ranma cast and landmarks at its heart. The game starts when Ranma and Akane find out about a contest organized by their school's headmaster. The winning price is a trip for two to Hawaii and a large gathering of school students soon fight to decide of the lucky winner. The core of the game is in Japanese but the interface is built around simple icons (such as talk, walk and so forth) - interestingly, they are only enabled when needed and under certain conditions which may greatly help non Japanese players. The game holds few surprises such as one-on-one fights using simple menu driven actions. The language barrier may require the player to continuously scratch his head but thanks to the simple menus and overall game design, it is far from a show stopper.
Released on December 06, 1991 in Japan for 6800 Yen.
