Human Grand Prix III: F1 Triple Battle (ヒューマングランプリ3 F1トリプルバトル?, "Human Grand Prix 3 F1 Triple Battle")[5] is a Formula One racing video game for the Super Famicom and the prequel of Human Grand Prix IV: F1 Dream Battle. Even though the game was only released in Japan, all in-game texts are in English.

Gameplay[edit]

The object is to win all the major international races on the Formula One circuit. The game can be played by either one, two or even three players (Battle Mode-only) simultaneously. Various modes of racing include: regular season, battle (which is similar to exhibition or single race mode in other Formula One video games), and the time trial mode which tests how fast a player can drive his or her race car on any of the world's premier road courses. Only the vehicles from the 1994 season are used. Michael Schumacher and Satoru Nakajima are the most popular racers in this video game, even though Nakajima is a hidden character.
