Trivia

Content

Nintendo of America did not allow any of its "Seal of Approval" titles to include tobacco or drug use, sex, blood, or death. Somehow escaping the toughest censors in the industry, Golgo 13 features a professional sniper, and victims that spew 8-bit blood. Duke Togo smokes a cigarette to regain his health, and spends a night of implied bliss with the lovely Cherry Grace. The game is credited by many to have the first implied sex scene in a Nintendo game.

Inspiration

Golgo 13 is based off the anime of the same name.
