Hong Kong 97 (香港97), often shorted to HK97, is a Japanese homebrew game made in 1995 for the Super Famicom (also known as the Super Nintendo Entertainment System outside of Japan and Southeast Asia) by HappySoft Ltd.

Hard copies of HK97 are extremely rare and are very valuable, but there are emulated ROMs of the game.

Because of Hong Kong 97’s extremely poor quality, it became famous in Japan and Taiwan through game reviews as a kuso-ge and described as “so bad, its good.”

The Game


You can play the game in Chinese, Japanese, and English:

Taken from the game itself (English version):

The year 1997 has arrived.
A herd of fuckin’ ugly reds.
are rushing from the mainland.

Crime rate has skyrockeded!
Hongkong is ruined!
Therefore, the Hongkong government called Bruce Lee’s relative “Chin” for the massacre of the reds.
Chin is a killer machine.
Wipe out all 1.2 billion of the red communists!

However, in mainland China there was a secret project in progress! A project to transform the deceased Tong Shau Ping into an ultimate weapon!


You control Chin, shooting Chinese people and police with the Y button, and maneuvering Chin with the d-pad. Occasionally, a syringe will float down, allowing you to become invincible for a short period of time.

After a while, three cars will come from the right out of nowhere, and after they pass, you fight the final boss.

Game Problems

  • After choosing which language to play the game in, you get the following advertisements:

  • The transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong was depicted in very poor taste, to say the least.
  • Game starts with no warning.
  • Terrible graphics.
  • Terrible controls.
  • The background changes randomly, but is always something stereotypically Chinese or Communist:

  • Two lines from a cover of the children song, I Love Beijing Tiananmen, replay over and over again until the game is turned off:
  • No sound effects.
  • If Chin is hit by anything (save the “invicibilty item”), he will die, leading to this screen:

  • The boss stage:

  • In the credits, the Canadian Embassy is credited for “Support.”

Online Origins

In 2004, Japanese website Mukunob hosted a page ridiculing the games quality, and is the most visited page on the site. It ridicules Hong Kong 97, with the author’s reaction being apparently speechless at the game’s introduction and content. It is also famous for noting that the Canadian Embassy is listed in the credits.
