Hyper Olympic for the Famicom is a port of the arcade game of the same name (known outside of Japan as Track & Field) which features 4 different athletic games. The game notably requires use of the HyperShot controller in order to play (not to be confused with the light gun by Bandai also named Hyper Shot). A sequel would release a few months later under the name Hyper Sports, and the two games would later be combined for international release as Track & Field.
