The Akuma-kun: Makai no Wana wiki last edited by otoboke on 05/23/14 07:29PM View full history

Overview

Akuma-kun: Makai no Wana ("Akuma-kun: Trap of the devil") is a roleplaying game developed for the Nintendo Entertainment System by Tose and published by Bandai on February 24th, 1990 in Japan. Based on a popular 1989 anime TV series (which in itself was based on a Manga series) Akuma-Kun, the game puts players in control of Akuma-kun as he travels the world visiting towns and dungeons on his way to make connection with the demon world.

Although very similar to most roleplaying games of the time in terms of gameplay, this switch in narrative from the usual tropes of having to kill demons rather than befriending them, helped to set the game apart from others. Furthermore, battles would play into this idea by allowing players to spawn demons to fight alongside them, similar to the Megaten series.
