Tengen Ltd.


Tengen Ltd. was Tengen's Japanese subsidiary.


Tengen in Japan gained a fair amount of notoriety for, of all things, their game manuals. In stark contrast with the bland, straightforward manuals found in most Japanese releases at the time, Tengen's manuals were filled to the brim with silly jokes and puns, bizarre interjections, and even personal anecdotes from the development staff. Each game also included fan art and letters, as well as previews of upcoming releases, and the company built a small but very loyal fanbase over the years. A complete selection of their manuals (in Japanese, of course), can be seen here.
