Kung Fu is a classic port of the arcade game. It's notable for being an obscenely rare (if not the only) instance of Nintendo porting an arcade game they did not develop.

The logo was changed, the font color was changed from orange to blue, and two dragons were added.

It should be noted that when Nintendo lost the license for Spartan X, the Famicom game was re-released as Kung Fu and is identical to its NES release.[1]
