1943 Kai: Midway Kaisen

1943 Kai: Midway Kaisen is a enhanced remake of 1943: The Battle of Midway released in 1987 for Arcades exclusively in Japan. It was later ported to the PC Engine in 1991 by Naxat Soft and was also included in the Capcom Generations Vol. 1 (notably the first time this game saw release outside of Japan) and Capcom Classics Collection compilations.
