The eighth Family Trainer game produced by Bandai for the NES, Totsugeki! Fuun Takeshijou is based on the obstacle course TV show Takeshi's Castle. Family Trainer: Totsugeki! Fuun Takeshijou is based on the popular TV show Takeshi's Castle, where contestants are pitted against each other in a series of generally absurd physical challenges in order to storm the castle of a character based on Japanese entertainment icon "Beat" Takeshi Kitano. The game required that the player use the Family Trainer (known as the Power Pad elsewhere) accessory to complete a series of athletics-based challenges to reach the final boss round, which involved driving a small tank around and defeating opponents including Takeshi.
