Description

Hong Kong 97 is an Action game, developed and published by HappySoft, which was released in Asia in 1995. The game was designed by the Japanese game journalist Kowloon Kurosawa, who said the game was made in about a week.

Plot

The game is set around the transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong in 1997. It is said that, at the time, people from the Chinese Mainland (referred to as “fuckin’ ugly reds”, making this one of the very few games on the Super Famicom that contains cursing) started immigrating to Hong Kong and greatly increased the crime rate. As a countermeasure, Chin (Jackie Chan in his Wheels on Meals appearance), a relative of Bruce Lee, was hired by the Hong Kong government (represented by Chris Patten) to wipe out all 1.2 billion people in China. But meanwhile, in China, research was underway to bring the dead “Tong Shau Ping” (Deng Xiaoping) back to life as the ultimate weapon.

When the game was released in 1995, Deng Xiaoping, said to be dead in the game, was still alive. However, he did die months before the handover, which is when the game’s plot actually takes place.
