Just watched this video. They had a narrator describe every game individually. The poor copy writer had to write dozens of different ways to describe a shoot 'em up game. :wink: And that poor narrator had to tell us that Y's Book I & II are the combination of Y's Book I and Y's Book II. :lol: Later the same narrator had to tell us that Y's I * II is the Japanese version of Y's Book I & II. Super Cringey!

Anyway, I'm hyped. This seems to confirm that we will be able to access the Japanese games, but without english language support. So we will all get the pleasure of randomly selecting items in Snatcher hoping we get to see something cool. How far will we get before we just download a walkthrough? :wink:

Yeah, I watched the Japanese trailer, and when it got to the TG-16 games, the narrator was talking about how, 'The US version of Dungeon Explorer was included in response to those players who wanted to see the game in its English form,' and I was thinking, 'Who! Who are these players? I don't believe you!'

Anyway, watching it made me really want to break out the PC Engine and play some Nectaris, or something.

I’m pretty excited about this. I think I may have to grab the pc engine version though.
