Virtual Fishing on Nintendo Virtual Boy is the last Japanese Exclusive to be translated to English

The Nintendo Virtual Boy was one of Nintendo’s few failures in gaming- it was completely mishandled by the marketing team for one thing, among others.  For retrogaming fans that means there is a smaller amount of titles to collect and, ultimately, enjoy.  This lack of software makes it easy for completest collector’s to purchase every […]

Phantasy Star I and II for Playstation 2 Translated into English by Fans

Okay, these fan translations are getting better and better.  The most recently released title, that most people reading this would actually care about, is Phantasy Star II.  Okay, you may be thinking, we got Phantasy Star II in English already on the Sega Genesis, um, a few decades ago.  You are right, we did.  This […]

Targa aka Rendering Ranger ROM for Super Nintendo Released

Back in November we covered the looming release of Targa, aka Rendering Ranger, for the Super Nintendo.  For those that don’t remember Targa was a Japanese exclusive and a prototype of the English version was found and purchased.  NintendoAge released a, very, limited run of cartridges (150 to be exact) after which the new ROM […]

Become a JUNKER in Neo Kobe City with Snatcher – Today in History – December 13th 1988

Snatcher is a game that, at the time of release in North America, was one of the first of a small genre which has not progressed much in the two plus decades since.  We covered Snatcher in our second issue of Retro Gaming Magazine, along with many other worthy titles.  While visual novels/digital comics are […]

Unreleased: Spiritual Successor to Turrican, Targa aka Rendering Ranger, to See Limited Cartridge Release on Super Nintendo

Take your pick on the name, Rendering Ranger or Targa, either way, this is a phenomenal looking title for the Super Nintendo.  The interesting thing about this title is that it was, for the longest time, a Japanese exclusive.  The Japanese version is quite pricey and one that not many gamers have seen in the […]

Thunder Force II Brings Arcade Quality Scrolling Shooter Action to Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989

Scrolling shooter fans were well served with the Sega Genesis and right out of the gate they got Thunder Force II from Sega/Technosoft. While not an arcade shooter, Thunder Force II would have been at home in the arcades if it was released there. Interestingly, Sega really covered several genres with the launch of the […]

Fan Translation: Royal Stone Released for Sega Game Gear

There are not too terribly many Game Gear titles that are Japan exclusives that require extensive knowledge of the language to play. One more title, Royal Stone, has been taken off of that list and is now available in English thanks to Aeon Genesis for providing this fan translation.

Fan Translation: Samurai Lord Musashi Now Available in English for Nintendo NES and Game Boy

Fan translations of titles that we never got in North America are quite cool and interesting because these are, for the most part, new games to enjoy. Here, gamers get two games, one for the NES and one for the Game Boy both based on the same historical figure in new re-imagined adventures.
