Wall Street Kid is a video game released by SOFEL for the NES. It was originally released in Japan as The Money Game II: Kabutochou no Kiseki (ザ・マネーゲームII「兜町の奇跡」?, "The Money Game 2: The Miracle of Kabutochou"), which was the sequel to The Money Game.
The story line from the two versions are different but the layout and the scheme of the office are almost exactly the same. Only cosmetic changes were made to make it relevant with the North American audiences; the part about the rich uncle dying and the nephew and showering his girlfriend with gifts until she becomes his trophy wife may be garnishings added on by the Nintendo of America localization team. These changes were probably inspired by 1980s movies with a rags to riches theme to it. Both of these games expect the player to exercise his avatar and go out on dates.
The player must prove himself worthy by taking $500,000 in seed money in order to gain a six-hundred-billion-dollar inheritance from the extremely wealthy Benedict family. Successfully investing it in the American stock market results in rewards like going shopping on the weekend and being able to acquire expensive items such as a house. The player is also encouraged to spoil his girlfriend, as all men of the Benedict family pampered their wives. The game terminates if the player is unable to raise the money needed for a key item such as a boat or the house, causing the stockbroker to be disowned by the family. Wall Street Kid is loosely based on a series of Japanese Famicom games.
