The PC Engine had a tremendous line up of iconic action and arcade games. Our new ACTION AND ARCADE boxset collects four fabulous titles into one sleak set: three arcade conversions and one conversion from Nintendo’s Famicom system.
Inluded on the arcade side are Rainbow Islands, Taito’s sequel to Bubble Bobble, offering vertically scrolling platform action its purest form. Chiki Chiki Boys is an arcade conversion from Capcom’s CPS platform, featuring cute characters in a horizontally scrolling platformer and Horror Story is the only home conversion of Toaplan’s auto-scrolling action platformer.
Converted from Nintendo’s Famicom is Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari (known in the US as River City Ransom). The PCE version features improved sprite artwork and backgrounds as well as a nice CD soundtrack. Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari merged the scrolling beat up action from Nekketsu Koha Kunio-kun (Arcade) with slight RPG elements (like shopping and building up your character’s attributes) to create of the NES’ true cult classics.
Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari comes with an Anniversary Sticker and an (exchangable) alternative cover artwork.
The set is available to order now and will start shipping on April 18th.
Early orders will include one of our new PC Genjin collector’s coins and all orders still include a copy of Dungeon Master (Theron’s Quest) for free.
