Thanks for reminding me this existed. I ordered Mr. Driller G for PS1 from a US seller.

I avoided it for awhile. I read about an issue with the air being scrolled off screen, not realizing that that quirk was inherent from the AC version (though maybe not to the same extent, telling from other posts), which uses PS1 based hardware.

edit: It's on a more powerful version of the hardware, though. According to system 16, despite the name, the System 10 hardware came out after system 11 and system 12. Mr. Driller 1 uses the same hardware as Tekken 3? Is the DC version a simple port of the PS1 version?

Sounds like fun! I really enjoy the series (though I've only really played the first and the DS game, Drill Spirits). I am really excited for the re-release of Drill Land on modern systems.

I bought it. Impressions are good so far, controls feel nice and snappy, graphics seem to be in HD rather than upscaled, and JP voices are intact.

I'm having a phenomenal time finally playing this. Some of these modes are just so fun and cool and really spice up the Driller formula. I even like the weird RPG Hole of Druaga stuff, but that's just my blind love for the Druaga series there.

I wasn't prepared for the music in this game to be as good as it is. It's pretty nuts.

Downloading the demo of DrillLand right now.

Pretty surprised to see that the game is 20€ in EU, and $30 in US ? Or is the Deku Deals site mistaken ?

Well, for once the EU shop is better. It is quite easy to set up an account for a new region and get some points cards from online sites, so some $ can be saved here.
