Kendo Rage, known in Japan as Makeruna! Makendō (負けるな!魔剣道, "Do Not Lose! Kendo Magic"), is an action video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System/Super Famicom by Datam Polystar. Seta U.S.A. published the English version.


It is a 2D action side scrolling game.


The original Japanese version of the game stars a girl named Mai Tsurugino (剣野 舞, Tsurugino Mai). A spirit detective named Doro (ドロ) finds Mai and asks her to help him attack monsters.

In the English-language version of the game, an American girl named Josephine "Jo" goes to Japan to attend a summer kendo school. Her personal trainer, Osaki "Bob" Yoritomo, asks her to fight monsters on the way to school.


Makeruna! Makendō was released for the Super Famicom on January 22, 1993.[1] An OVA series, Makeruna! Makendo, closely follows the original Japanese version of the game, featuring both Mai and her younger sister Hikari (the main character from the second game).[citation needed]

It was released in North America as Kendo Rage in October 1993 and published by Seta U.S.A..[2]

A fighting game follow-up titled Makeruna! Makendō 2: Kimero Youkai Souri was released for the Super Famicom and PlayStation.[3][4] A role-playing video game titled Makeruna! Makendō Z was released for the PC-FX.[5]


Famitsu gave the game a score of 24 out of 40.[1]
