Do we know if the Namcot JPN Collections are multi-language, at least for the menus?


Play-Asia says it is and the free version with one game definitely supports English. Menus are fully in English, but manual for Wagan Land is untranslated, just like the game itself. Boss fights are similar to Yo Noid in that they are mini game fights, but the mini game is picture based with the text that tells you which on to pick in Japanese. I'm not sure if the download version is back up yet. The JP download version was taken down due to a bug that gave people who purchased a game for the collection the wrong game. I have enough coins for one of them, so I'll see if I can buy Star Luster or Family Jockey when the DLC is back up.

What's interesting is that, according to the steam forum, Splatterhouse FC in the US version of the collection has been translated, though the title screen is still in Japanese.

Thanks for the info! I might order the physical of vol 1 or 2 to avoid any DLC bugs. I don't know why they have to remove the cool window dressing for the USA release, and region exclusives are a real boil on our collective asses.

The fact that the Toaplan ports are part of the ShotTriggers series concerns me a little. I'm sure the price of the others has a lot to do with their lack of success. I'd rather a more bare-bones ports at ACA/Ages-type prices if I'm honest.

I have it. It's cool. Its a horizontal Touhou. I could live without the "Danmaku Rush" mechanic but overall I think its pretty good.

NMK's P-45: The Phantom Fighter is out tomorrow on Arcade Archives, for PS4 and Switch. I'd never played this one, but following a quick test run, it's quite apparently the prequel to USAAF Mustang, which I'm a big fan of via its Mega Drive conversion "Fire Mustang." Doesn't seem quite as immediately foot-to-the-floor as that one, but it's got the same simple charm, and actually has some varied stage topography too. I wonder if it's got the same hellish rank... even the MD cart gets angry if you've not dropped any lives by stage 5 or so, haha.

Supposedly Mustang was even going to be called P-51 originally (as the real Mustang is, like the Thunderbolt is P-47). P-47's quite rough in comparison (implementation-wise), but you can extremely tell how fundamental it is to the rest of NMK's catalog, so it's worth a look if just to see how The NMK Style developed from its roots :)

Just coming back to post that whoa, holy fuck, it definitely picks up by stage 2 :shock: Yeah this is a definite pickup for me! Here's hoping Mustang and P45 Aces show up sometime too.

Haha, sorry. :mrgreen: Damn thing's right in front of me in MAME, even.

EDIT: aw nice, ACA ver uses their 10/15/20/30hz variable autofire. Seems it's become the standard, as it should be.

Watching the rolling demo reminded me that it'd only been a year or so since R-Type's benchmark "Huge Battleship." Big nasty bugger truly captures the aesthetic of 1943's naval attacks.
