Cowboy Bebop (カウボーイビバップ Kaubōi Bibappu?) is a PlayStation game by Bandai based on the anime of the same name.

The game was never released outside Japan.

Gameplay[edit]

The player controls Spike Spiegel's Swordfish II from a third person perspective. Each level involves chasing another ship (the bounty head) along a set track through different environments, while enemies (spaceships, robots, etc.) attack. Each stage ends with a boss battle, confronting your target.

Between stages, bonus points earned can be spent to purchase upgrades for the ship (faster speed, more powerful ammo, stronger laser).

Cast[edit]

In the same way that characters interacted with the player in Star Fox, series regulars Jet Black, Faye Valentine, and Edward appear on screen to offer advice. Each character is voiced by their original Japanese voice actor. Other series regular Ein also occasionally appears. Yoko Kanno, who composed the series' trademark music, composed the soundtrack for the game.
