Kouryuu no Mimi "Ear of the Golden Dragon" is a single-plane brawler for the Super Famicom that loosely follows the plot of the short-lived manga of the same name. Natsume Kiroemon is the 45th in a long line of guardians of the legendary treasure of a former Emperor of China, the Ear of the Golden Dragon, which is said to instill immense powers in its owner. Falling in love with the scion of the rival Mina clan, Kanako, the powers of the earring manifest when she is kidnapped on their wedding day. The game focuses on a local orphanage that the Kiroemon family has protected for many years that comes under attack from a league of bikers and other villains who believe a horde of gold is stashed underneath. The player moves left to right fighting enemies as they appear, relying on their martial arts and found weaponry. After enough enemies have been defeated the Ear of the Golden Dragon confers additional power to Natsume, making him faster and stronger temporarily.

As a beat-em-up, its design never once thinks to question the accepted wisdom of the era. Gameplay and narrative are neatly separated from one another, the visuals aim for both a feeling of there-ness and a certain level of authenticity in regard to the source material , and any deviations from the initial plan try their best not to threaten its original integrity.


Kouryuu no Mimi – Review

I'm surprised someone beat me to reviewing this obscure beat 'em up, but I would like to add onto what has already been established. Apparently this game is a manga adaptation, though I have no idea what budget or expected fan-base the developers were working with. Regardless, this game looks and plays like it is from instead of Onto the review.. I personally think the Dragon Ball Z type character transformation looks visually cheap and artistically tacky. I will mention that I liked how the enemies had large and fully colored facial portraits, better than just about brawler on a bit console.
