Takeshi's Challenge, Takeshi Kitano's prank on the NES generation, has finally been translated.

ROM patching instructions are here. You'll have to find your own ROM, though.

It's funny because I was thinking to myself, What a coincidence this game designer has the same name as… So I clicked on the Wikipedia bio and I was amazed.

He's an undecuple threat.

I love the hell out of Kikujiro. I think I need to dig up my DVD and watch it again.

Kikijuro is also my favourite Kitano film. Followed closely by Kids Return and a Scene at the Sea.

I love his gangster movies too, but I think he brings something really special to movies featuring children.

I think his performance in Battle Royal is probably the best damn thing, EVER.

Kikujiru is amazing. I've never laughed and cried so hard at any one film in my life.

BTW, just reminding everyone who doesn't know about this legendary kusoge, you probably should not play it. The entire game is a huge screw-you to players, requiring in places that players sing karoke through the Famicom's microphone for an hour, keep a button held down for hours, or press a button thousands of times.

It is not healthy for children, animals, or other living things.

I keep hoping he'll do a movie of 'The Good Soldier Ċ vejk', because, to my mind at least, that would be pretty much the perfect combination of actor and character/story.

He never does though.

Oh! Dream and Friends has a bunch of screenshots of dialogue from the game. I didn't link it in the actual post because I am too few internet-people-degrees-of-separation from the blog to be comfortable linking to it in the FPP.

So... pretty soon we're going to see the greatest Let's Play of all time, right?

Note about Dream and Friends, you really have to check out the alt text for every image on that site.

The episode of Game Center CX with this game was more than a little awesome.

So. Cool.
