Fighting Mania: Fist of the North Star (パンチマニア 北斗の拳 Panchi Mania Hokuto no Ken) is a boxing arcade game made by Konami based on the Fist of the North Star series.


Fighting Mania: Fist of the North Star's gameplay involves standing in front of the arcade cabinet where enemies will appear on the screen. When prompted, a punching pad from the cabinent will extend and light up. Punching the pad is how players will attack, dodge, and perform other actions. Note that it is recommended to punch the pads lightly, as the strength of the punch does not matter. As attacks are landeed or dodged, a 'tech' meter in the shape of the Big Dipper will fill, once full a special move will be automatically activated. Failing to dodge attacks will result in recieving damage depleting the life bar, once the player's life bar is depleted they are defeated.
