It's a miracle these Natsume SFC Power Trio reduxes exist at all, and particularly with how splendidly Wild Guns and Ninja Warriors Again's outings were, they can take all the time they need.

I agree with you. I think they did a fantastic job on the prior two, so if they need more time, I'm more than happy to wait. I can't wait to get this one, and I hope they have a PS5 labeled one!

That being said, are there any differences in the prior ones between the US and Asian releases? I think mine are the Asian ones, which are in English, but wondering if I missed anything not getting the US ones.

They're not mobile-looking but they are made in Unity!

I don't believe so - I got The Ninja Warriors' Japanese PS4 release, which syncs up fine with the US/EU Time Attack leaderboards, and also has full English text (just need to set the system language accordingly, ofc). Haven't heard of any missing content. Wild Guns Reloaded I've not played quite as extensively, though its NTSCJ PS4 version too behaves just like TNWOA's, as of its latest update.

I don't believe you! They are hand-crafting each pixel from pure Nippon electrons, folded over 1000 times by true masters in the ancient ways to achieve a perfect blend of hardness and softness, yin and yang, Pocky and Rocky.

Since I only do physical release. Is this getting a Western release?

If there's a PC "port", I really hope they don't cripple it with DRM again like they did with Wild Guns Reloaded.


"Cripple it with DRM" = no discernible negative impact at all.

Not sure at this time, but like the other releases, the "Asia" version usually had English as an option, and as noted above, the Ninja Warriors seems to have English in the Japanese version, so just snag it from your favorite retailer!

I'm... happy to wait, but I also feel that the more time passes, the less likely we are to see more stuff from these guys :D

Thanks for the answer above.

I am thinking of getting the SFC version of Kaikai. Would you own both or just the switch version?

Going Japan in March and Kaikai was on my hit list but if I can save $150 on kaikai and use it elsewhere that would be beneficial.

In the case of both the Wild Guns and TNWA remakes, I think owning both the new and original games is 100% justified.
Wild Guns just plays extremely differently thanks to the difference in the widescreen design. TNWOA is less of a shakeup, but simply via the addition of many more simultaneous enemies and changed up boss fights, the remake still makes for a very different overall experience, and someone who's a fan of one of them would find unique things to like about both.

It's of course too early to say for Kiki Kaikai, but from what's been revealed so far, it seems like this one is going to have enen more things changed than the other two. At the same time, though, I'm not personally a massive fan of the original, not to the same extent as WG and TNWA, and I'm half expecting that the remake will be nothing but an improvement for me.
I'm sure people who are fans would like to have both, though.

Though most (all?) of the footage so far shows levels that look similar to the SNES Pocky and Rocky, the developers have said that this is not a remake as Wild Guns Reloaded and Ninja Warriors Once Again were. I expect this might be a Castlevania X68k situation where a few of the game's levels are based on the original but most of it is wholly new.

I don't know, I just haven't clicked with it. It feels messy, and I'm not really sure how to play it well.

Wait till you try the 2 player mode lol

No, really, it's not messy at all. I don't think there's much depth to it despite all the actions you can do. The repel button should get a lot of use, but other than that it's as visceral as you want it to be.

Yeah I think even having a repel action confuses me.

I think 2 player would make it a lot harder to control when I'm only one person, too :D

Even if you're two people, it's indeed harder to control since both characters can send each other away easily by accident, with no foreseeable landing point. And the additional slowdown makes it all even harder. It's somewhat chaotic, in fact.

But then again, it's an awesome game which ends up clicking sooner o later and then you just can't forget about it.
