Shadowrun Game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System is actually a video game adaptation of a famous tabletop game of the same name. The story revolves around Jake Armitage.
The year was 2050 and Jake Armitage was gunned down by assassins. Apparently, someone wants Jake killed. After the assassins shoot a lot of bullets at him, a mysterious figure went to Jake and cast some spell on him.
That spell was probably something that saved Jake as he wakes up in the morgue and was apparently suffering from Amnesia. He basically cannot remember the events that transpired before him waking up in the morgue.
After Jake woke up, a “dog”, which is a shamanistic figure, warned Jake about his impending doom. Curious as to what has really happened, Jake tries to uncover the mysteries that have transpired.

It was also revealed later in the story that Jake has an amazing computer chip in his brain that was supposedly the one that can stop a dangerous Artificial Intelligence that was created by none other than Drake himself. In short, Drake was the one who staged this whole thing and he was the one who wanted Jake to be dead because of the chip that may counter all his nefarious plans.
