Released in October 1984. The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Freshman Tooru-kun'.

In this Japanese version, the character is NOT a student, he is a new company employee (hence the title "New Employee Tooru-kun"). This is the reason that the graphical changes exist between this and overseas versions.

This game is known outside Japan as "Mikie".

The classroom level of Mikie plays the song 'A Hard Day's Night' by The Beatles. The Gym Level plays 'Twist and Shout', the Medley/Russell song made famous by the Fab Four.
