Description

Kakuto Chojin is a hand-to-hand melee fighter, where you fight with your hands and feet instead of weapons and powermoves.

There are twelve fighters to choose from, each with their own fighting style, such as Jeet Kune Do, Kickboxing, Wrestling, etc. Each fighter also has his or her own special moves, which are more powerful than the basic moves.

KC is un-scripted, meaning every hit, jab, kick, punch, etc. will be executed in real-time, meaning a kick to the head won't always produce the same falling animation.

The game modes available are Tournament, 2 Player and 4 Player Battle Royal

As of February 7th, 2003, Kakuto Chojin: Back Alley Brutal can no longer be found on store shelves in North America and Japan. The game has been recalled due to religious references that may be offensive to those who are Christian or Muslim.

Trivia

Controversy

Several months after the game's release, Microsoft asked retailers to return any remaining stock of this game because it included a calling for prayers that members of the Muslim faith use. Microsoft destroyed their remaining stock they had on hand and manufactured an updated version without the prayer.

Title

The proper way to say the name of the game is:

Kakuto (ka-cute-oh) Chojin (show-gin)
