About The Game
Son Son is an arcade video platform game.
Play as Son Son or Ton Ton and travel through a variety of different stages while fighting enemies in order to rescue their friends.
Released in July 1984.
This was Capcom's second game and their first released in the United States.
Son Son is Capcom's tribute to a Chinese legend called 'Xiyou Ji', meaning 'Journey to the West', considered to be one of the four classic pieces of Chinese literature (and a fairly good read). The main character in Xiyou Ji is Sun Wukong, or, when you pronounce the words as if they were Japanese kanji, Son Gokuu (hence the name Son Son).
This game features one of the first game soundtracks composed by Tamayo Kawamoto, who made also other Capcom 80's BGM. She now works at Taito : she's a member of Zuntata, the popular (well, in Japan) Taito band where she plays keyboards.
