The Punisher (パニッシャー) is a 1993 arcade game developed and released by Capcom. It stars Marvel Comics' anti-hero vigilante the Punisher and co-stars S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury as the second player's character. It was ported to the Sega Genesis.
The Punisher is a beat 'em up where Punisher and Fury embark on a quest to thwart the New York crime lord Kingpin, engaging on various foes and stage bosses mostly in hand-to-hand combat.
Several established Marvel Universe villains appear throughout the game, such as the Mafia captain Bruno Costa, Bonebreaker, Bushwhacker, Jigsaw, and the Kingpin himself as the final boss.
