This will include the two Vasara games, obviously.

I still want to see that "HD" they are talking about.

Also for Vita, Xbox One, Mac, Windows, and PS4 if you don't mind adding that to the thread title. AFAIK (could def be wrong) this is the first time they explicitly announced the platforms rather than just saying "consoles and PC".

Wowsers, a physical release, albeit a limited one...if you'd told me a few years ago that this would be happening I'd probably have checked with the local asylum to see if anyone had escaped. :lol:

That being said, was there ever a non-Japanese language edition of the arcade games? If not, would this be the first translation either game has received, assuming they're not just leaving everything as-is and slapping it onto a disc?

I immediately thought of BulletMagnet, who has always spoke highly of Vasara. Fantastic news!

I don't think there is any other versions of these bar the JPN, not to my knowledge anyway.

I would be happy with both games being "slapped" on a disc as is. Fingers crossed they don't make an arse of it.

The PCB has a dip switch setting to add English subtitles.

Really unexpected.

I'll wait to see the quality of the ports, before I let any enthusiasm show through.

Yeah, I know the feeling. Though, those emulation packs are so much better now than they were a decade ago. I've been pleasantly surprised- out of all the stuff I have on Switch, the Atari Flashback and Capcom Beat 'em Up collection probably have the poorest emulation (compared to, say, M2's efforts), and they're still so much better than the better emulation packs I had for the PS2 (like the Taito Collections). I'm still scarred by that SNK pack where all I wanted to do was play Shock Troopers, and it was filled with herky jerky loading pauses every 15 seconds :o

Though, yeah, I do know with something like a shmup or fighting game that even slight input lag or an incorrect refresh rate can ruin your run if you get serious about it, so I can understand why people'd be cautious.

It's more the lack of screen options on the CBEU collection that annoys me, and the ones it does have are pretty poor.

So let me understand... Is a gaijin devteam handling the ports without any input whatsoever from the original staff? :(

I didn't catch it the first time but yeah, looks like a Brazilian company is the publisher and has the development rights. The question is whether they're developing the port themselves or if they're outsourcing.

Did you play it after the update that added more screen options and fake scanlines?

That Brazilian company Qubyte had published at least one game on Switch on their name, beat em up called 99 Vidas and it was quite solid game IMO. I guess they have also been doing ports for others as well, but no idea what.

Really hoping the ports will be good, but unless it's M2 doing the port, it's always uncertain what will be the outcome.
