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.

Arcade Archives: Koutetsu Yousai Strahl is out tomorrow for PS4 and Switch. Very pleased! Always thought its mildly chibi WAR & PAIN grimdark looked super cool, and it's composed by Yoshio Nagashima, who did Biometal (SFC)'s singularly melancholic soundtrack. UPL always gets my attention.

edit: after a quick spin in MAME, picking this up for sure. st1's a bit mild, but st2's eminently bombable midboss parades, st3's snipertank-infested city, and st4's vicious battleship raid won me over. Latter makes it clear how agile and powerful the default ship is, and that you're expected to make full use of it or else. Special mention to those asshole VTOLs that love to hang around, reminded me of Kyuukyoku Tiger's more maddening zako helis. I like the hybrid of Gradius and Tiger Heli-styled bombs, too. Former's articulation, latter's impact.

Nice dis @ credit feeders in the stage clear tally, bahaha!

On the ps4 side it I'm only finding this on the Japan store, if anyone else goes looking for it. Love that mega huge bomb.

Hell yeah, I'm loving the visual overload... not as surreal as Ark Area or Mutant Night, but similarly generous with the pixel confetti. :mrgreen: Some points in st2 are absolutely swimming in chunky wreckage and screen-obliterating splosions.

Solid archetypal 16bit-era hori with an emphasis on loadout and Option mechanics, like a roid-raging Whip Rush. Really digging st4's relentless pincer pressure, ferocious Hyuge Battleship stage. Boss's TFIII reference was cute! Love st3 too, as a sniper tank aficionado always glad to see them make the jump to horis. Relentless little buggers.

Image

Def a bit of a Mutron vibe from this big fucker though.

Image

Coulda used a third button for turrets, but it's easily worked around. Not sure what the difference is between Old and New versions? I'd thought the latter was slightly tougher, but then I went at st2's battleship parade with Fat Lazor and Spread BOMBA and they went down just as quick.

Oh man, this one is SO GOOD. A lot of these Hamster releases are neat as a historical archive, but the super old games are fairly rough. Strahl though is a freaking blast.

These are the types of games I hope we see more of in the future. More modern games from the 90's or late 80's.

I love my switch, there is a ton of shooters on it and probably a lot more coming up.

all the previous nintendo console are lacking shmups in comparison.

I think only the nes had quite a lot of shooters... super nes had maybe 10-15 shooters ?... nintendo 64 had almost none... gamecube not so much... wii had some but not that many... wiiu I don't know but I think it was lacking too.

gameboy, gameboy color, gameboy advance, nintendo ds and 3ds had almost zero shmups.

I've been playing a good amount of Strahl the last couple of days, and while I'm improving my runs, it's very much a "wtf killed me?" kind of game. The bullets are tiny, some of the smallest in any game, and they blend into the massive explosions going off all around you. It's frustrating, as it's otherwise a really fun game.

Yeah feeling this. Particularly the third stage, between the colour scheme (very Last Resort), the tiny bullets and the screen-sized explosions, I very quickly got over any guilt I felt for using the shield. the levels seem to get longer as you progress as well.

I do like it through when a game pops up that I've never seen or heard of before though, especially at AA places.

1993 Shenandoah came out not long ago... it got a very Amiga/Genesis look.

Sad to say, the demo isn't very good. It plays a lot like an Amiga shooter....
