*Things JonTron didn't cover*

• Punching 20,000 times on the title screen will warp you to the treasure room. (I'm not sure whether the old man kills you.)

• "horumon" is a common Japanese dish made from offal. As a childish pun, they changed it to "morumon", which the sign literally translates as GRILLED MORMON. It's equivalent to saying "freshly-squeezed Jews" in English.

• Whenever you die from damage and fall down, you can press A+B simultaneously and repeatedly to revive on the spot. This of course will not help you in the goddamn hang glider section.

• Pressing Down+A simultaneously on the 2nd controller switches it to Don't Have To Fucking Sing Mode. You can then just press A on the 2nd controller to emulate a yell into the microphone. Tapping it in proper rhythm with the song will also pass the karaoke potion.

• You can talk to the skeletons as though they were any other NPC.

Fun fact: if you stick around in the ending long enough after "Amazing!", you'll get another message: "Why're ya taking this game so seriously?"

Imagine the resulting nervous Chernobyl if JonTron did.

One of the endings is this:
"You actually bothered

crappy game?
Don't take it so

This game had a TON of curses, and pretty savage for a nintendo licensed game.

The fact that the Karaoke owner tells you "That was shit, get out of here." is just but one of the many hidden gems

Honestly this game seems more like an art piece instead of a video game. This game was definitely years ahead in terms of experimentation.

A lot of people say here Takeshi made this game cause he hated them. But is also ironic he took his time to make a game so revolutionary for its time. This is literally skyrim 8-bit you can do whatever the hell you want.

4:22 is an old Japanese joke, in Romanji it translates as ""Okaerinasai, anata! Gohan wo taberu? Ofuro ni suru? Soretomo, wa. ta. shi?". It's something a newlywed wife would say to her husband when he comes home from work. In English, it means "Welcome home, dear! Would you like dinner? A bath? Or perhaps...me?".

Neat fact: There's a boss enemy in the game Yakuza 6 named Toru Hirose and portrayed by Beat Takeshi himself. And you get to beat him. Beat Beat Takeshi.

JonTron stands for Jonathan Tronathan. Prove me wrong.

Wonder how long it took him to learn the Japanese segment of the video

I love how genuine Jon's shocked laughter is at 4:43. His videos are usually pretty rehearsed but it seems like the prospect of domestic abuse was the last thing he expected to see in a Famicon game.

This game actually sounds like it would be fun if it were to be remastered

It’s the end of 2019 and we still don’t even have a game that comes close to the absurdity of this gem. Tell me another game were you can divorce your wife beat your kids and hang glide and go treasure hunting.
