Hardware Description

The Video Challenger (Japanese: ビデオチャレンジャー, Hepburn: Bideocharenjā) is a home video game console that was produced by Takara (now Takara Tomy) in 1987. It uses special VHS tape-based footage that allows players to shoot targets with a ray gun. The object of each game played using a VHS tape and a ray gun is to determine how many targets are hit at the end of the VHS tape. Takara ended production of the Video Challenger due to the success of the Family Computer and the release of the PC Engine video game consoles.
