The Konix Multisystem was quite a beast, had it been released, that could have at least been an interesting purchase for gamers. The biggest draw of this vaporware platform is that it would contain nearly every conceivable accessory that you could think of inside and ready for use. Yeah, not a big thing to hitch your publicity wagon to but it was what Konix was going for. The stills we saw in gaming magazines back in the day were not impressive and the press generally flogged the Konix Multisystem for this. A few years ago Attack of the Mutant Camels by Jeff Minter was found, and more recently a version of Last Ninja 2 was discovered.
It is Last Ninja 2 that we are going to discuss here. For those that are not familiar with this classic title, you are tasked as a ninja clad in black who must take on many enemies in his quest to thwart an evil shogun. This is not going to be easy and will test your skills throughout each level.
Yeah, the story is pretty generic because back in the day ninjas were a big thing. We had Ninja Gaiden, Ninja Commando, ninjas in fighting games, etc. Ninjas were around to stay. Nowadays ninjas are relegated to the auxiliary characters in one on one fighting games. Just remember, at one point in gaming history, ninjas ruled gaming.
At this moment though, Last Ninja 2 for the Konix Multisystem is just some disks. While preservation is planned, it is not as easy as simply putting the disks in a PC and copying the contents over. These disks will have to be put into a Konix Multisystem developer console and opened that way. For that reason, we are hopeful that preservation can happen sooner than later and we will see Last Ninja 2 added to the short list of Konix Multisystem games available.
