In this side-scrolling game produced for the NES, the Gohten is one of several opponents the player has a chance of fighting in Hyperspace areas of each level. The Gohten will fire upon the player using its various cannons, but will otherwise stay stationary. The player can choose to destroy the Gohten by attacking its cannons, or simply walk to the right and leave the Hyperspace area.
- The Gohten is an obvious homage to the Gotengo.
- The Gohten is the second in a line of vehicles produced by Toho which have drill weapons on their noses, with its predecessor being the Gotengo itself.
