Mini Yonku Shining Scorpion: Let's & Go!!

Mini Yonku Shining Scorpion: Let's & Go!!

Top-down isometric driving game based on manga which is in turn based on the Mini 4WD miniature car toyline in Japan.


Mini Yonku Shining Scorpion: Let's & Go!! is a racing game for the Super Famicom and uses a slanted top-down view of the various cars as they drive around a series of tracks. It was exclusive to the Japanese Super Famicom.

The cars are actually Mini Yonku: a brand of toy car produced by Tamiya Corporation. These cars are usually battery-powered and are greatly scaled down versions of real vehicles. Shining Scorpion is the first Super Famicom game to use the license, but the third to appear on a Nintendo console.

The game specifically uses the Let's & Go! license, a manga written with the Mini Yonku toyline in mind. This serial manga features two brothers, Retsu and Go, who get involved in the world of Mini Yonku racing when the inventor Dr. Tsuchiya gives them two powerful prototype models. Let's & Go would also be the basis for this game's follow-up, the 1998 SFC game Mini-Yonku Let's & Go!! Power WGP 2, as well as two Game Boy games.
