The Master System Hokuto no Ken is an adaptation of the manga. Due to said manga being relatively unknown outside of Japan at this point, the international release changed the main character to a generic martial artist with superpowers.

Level Select

At the title screen, press Up, Down, Left, Right, Up+Left, Up+Right, Down+Right, Down+Left, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Up, Up+Right, Up+Right on Controller 2. The level select will appear to the right of the title. Note that the code is quite difficult to enter: the diagonals must be pressed very precisely, and there's only a small window of time to enter the code.

Alternately, use Pro Action Replay (PAR) code 00DB6B12.
