Shin Nihon Puroresu: King of Sports

Founded by Antonio Inoki in January 1972, New Japan Pro Wrestling is a major professional wrestling promotion and today remains one of the more successful in Japan.

The Toukon Sanjuushi or Three Musketeers consisted of New Japan wrestlers Keiji Mutoh, Masahiro Chono and Shinya Hashimoto. The group was formed in 1988 during an excursion in Puerto Rico. This game, the very first NJPW video game ever and presented by the Varie Corporation, is centered around this stable of wrestlers, also featuring the following:

Hiroshi Hase
Tatsumi Fujinami
Riki Choshu

The gameplay differs from other wrestling games in that the player must earn grapple icons by either, striking their opponent three times or defending against their attack with the right timing, in order to perform grappling maneuvers.

Varie would then develop a trilogy of NJPW video games for the Super Famicom.
