    In 1986, Sierra released the original Thexder action game from Game Arts of Japan. With its fast action, depth of play and impressive entertainment value, it became the company's bestselling title of 1987. With over one million units sold worldwide, Thexder ranks as one of the top selling computer games of all time.

    Now, Game Arts is proud to present Firehawk: Thexder -- The Second Encounter. This impressive sequel to the original Thexder continues where the earlier game left off, and features improvements in design and game play to provide even more enjoyment.

    With nine challenging levels of play, new features and options, and a degree of visual polish virtually unknown in U.S. action games products, Firehawk: Thexder -- The Second Encounter is a sure-fire winner. It's an action game you'll want to play again, and again, and again.
