It is no secret that Japanese exclusives are interesting to the staff of Retro Gaming Magazine, and judging from the response, the same can be said for our readers. MonkeyPaw Games apparently feels the same way as they are launching Retro Rush on the Playstation Network, starting tomorrow and featuring six formerly Japan only titles released one each week.
The schedule is below, notably, Double Dragon and Tomba! 2 are on this list. Double Dragon is interesting because, unlike the recent Double Dragon Neon, this is a one on one fighting game rather than a scrolling brawler.
● Jan. 14 – Double Dragon
● Jan. 21 – Lucifer Ring
● Jan. 28 – The Firemen 2: Pete and Danny
● Feb. 4 – Hyper Crazy Climber
● Feb 11 – Wolf Fang
● Feb 18 – Tomba! 2: The Evil Swine Return
