'Les Miserables' Video Game 'Arm Joe' From '90s Is 'Mortal Kombat' Ripoff (VIDEO)

Someone alert Wayne LaPierre: "Les Miserables" had a two-player fighter Japanese video game in 1998. Really.

Evidently, Japan is surprisingly affectionate of the musical, and released this "Street Fighter"/"Moral Kombat" type video game "Arm Joe." ("Arm Joe" is a transliteration of the French word "Ah, Mujou," which roughly translates to "Oh, Cruelty.")

So if you ever wanted to see Javert and Jean Valjean beat the crap out of each other with "thwack" sound effects, today's your lucky day.
