Recca was developed as a competition game for an event called “Summer Carnival” in 1992 for the Famicom. The game was never released in America until more recently, appearing on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
Recca is incredibly tough and insanely fast as far as NES games go. There are essentially two version of this game that are programmable onto an NES cart. For the purists, there is a straight up port of the original with some English translation. The one that I prefer and shown in the video below is known as Recca -PURE- and has a few additional features, most notably is the Zanki Attack mode which gives you 50 lives to complete the game, but is absurdly difficult and all the enemies explode into projectiles when you shoot them.
