Description

Naniwa Wangan Battle is a street racing game set in Osaka, Japan. The game features a variety of the usual poster cars of Japanese street racing of the mid 1990s, albeit without their real names or badges. The game contains a main “scenario” mode which features a light story between races, and your winnings can be spent on upgrades to your car. The game boasts the supervision of both Eiji “Tarzan” Yamada, a popular Japanese racing driver, as well as of Auto Select, a tuning and racing company from Osaka. As if that’s not enough star power, the game also presents real-life Kansai radio station FM802, along with the voice of Nakajima Hiroto, one of the station’s DJs.

Trivia

Title translation

While the game’s title would most straightforwardly translate as “Osaka Bay Battle,” it does specifically call out “Naniwa” (“なにわ”), an older name for the Osaka region. Both names for Osaka are shown in the game’s logo, and while the modern “大阪” spelling wins out in the Japanese spelling of the title shown on the spine, the older name is used in the romanised title, both on the front cover and on the opposite spine.
