Star Wars Q&A at Galactic Hunter

Q&A by Adam PawlusGalactic Hunter Star Wars NewsGalactic Hunter has posted a Q&A: Star Wars Exclusives, Shipments, and TIE Pilots! It's new! Be sure to click through and read up on the latest!

M2 Developing Sega's Mega Drive/Genesis Classic, $80 in September

SegaSegaVia Kotaku and others by way of Sega Fes 2019: Sega Will Release The Genesis Mini On September 19. What's particularly fascinating is the retro archivists at M2 are handling the software for 40 different games to be included on board, also Japan, US, and European versions of Castlevania: Bloodlines. And Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo 2, Shining Force, Space Harrier II, Gunstar Heroes, and others you actually want. It's sounding better than the Sony PlayStation Classic already.

Pre-orders are up on Amazon right now. Yes that is an affiliate link.

Streets of Rage composer Yuzo Miro is composing new music for the menus. That's a big deal.

With Nintendo's mini boxes being good, Analogue's boxes being great - for collectors, and AtGames also selling things, you've got a lot of options. For the non-collector or someone wanting a Criterion Collection-esque compilation, this sounds like it might be pretty good. For American fans, 2019 is the 30th anniversary of the Sega Genesis - and GameBoy, and TurboGrafx-16. Do you feel old yet?

...and this is the part where I go "Strider?"

New Album - Technoptimistic from Remute Released on Cartridge

SegaMusic on PlasticVia Bandcamp: Technoptimistic by Remute was released last month and you can buy it in physical form. The form is that of a Sega Mega Drive or Genesis cartridge. I'm playing the previews as I type this and it's pretty good - if you're familiar with Shit Robot it's like a 16-bit version of that, it sounds a lot like "From the Cradle to the Rave" in spots.

GameStop Earnings Not Great

Video GamesIs This The End?Via GameRant: GameStop Reports $673 Million Full-Year Loss. That is a lot of money for the firm that rolled up Babbage's, Software Etc., Funkoland, and Electronics Boutique.

Like other media stores, they've been pivoting to vinyl - mostly vinyl figures. Walgreens also posted iffy earnings. As both are big rollers in the world of toys with more locations than just about anyone else with a toy section in the USA, it's kind of alarming.

Tobu Tobu Girl Deluxe GameBoy Color on Kickstarter

GameBoyWrestle!Via Kickstarter: Tobu Tobu Girl Deluxe for GB/GBC. Released previously as GameBoy-only, this new one is playable on all the GameBoy platforms - although it's optimized for GameBoy Color, hence the "Deluxe" nod to the DX games of the very late 1990s.

At today's exchange rate it's $55 for a boxed copy with manual, coin, cartridge, and the works.

Some of the stretch goals are pretty good, like a Super GameBoy border (for those of you playing on one on your Super NT or Super Nintendo.) I admit, that's a huge selling point.

ICYMI: Nebs 'n Debs - Newish NES Game

NintendoDebsVia the publisher: Nebs 'n Debs. You can get it as a ROM or as a cartridge with a box. This page has a demo ROM of the first level which I tried, and it was pretty good if brief - it plays like the GameBoy WarioLand: Super MarioLand 3 game, but not quite as stiff.

A ROM is $10. The cartridge with box, manual, dust sleeve, and ROM is $47.99. I have yet to find a review of this one, but it has a woman with an octopus stuck to her head for some reason I don't know.

For those of you keeping track of such things, other indie games are making some good progress. Micro Mages is being assembled and shipping out shortly. Family Picross just updated saying it's getting ready to ship. Alfonzo's Arctic Adventure shipped last month. It's a strangely bright era of new old games.

Retron 77 Now Has New Firmware Update

AtariThe New OldVia the Atari Age Forums: Stella 6 on the R77: the eagle is landing!

Supposedly this is a big fix - if you have Hyperkin's clone Atari VCS (or 2600), it fixes audio, scanlines, and a bunch of other stuff. Since there probably won't be a FPGA clone any time soon - or maybe there is, who knows - this may be handy if you have this clone already.

NES on Kickstarter - Dungeons & Doomknights

NintendoDungeons and DoomknightsVia Kickstarter: DUNGEONS & DOOMKNIGHTS: An 8-bit AdventureQuest for the NES. I should note, this one is unusual for NES Kickstarters in that there's no video and the game isn't done yet. The ETA is December for the cartridge and October for the ROM, and it looks like it might be interesting. They call it a "Zeldavania."

This one has already ben fully funded 5 times over, and generally these sorts of things tend to have a bit of a production above and beyond the backers. (There's also a gold cartridge for backers only.) It's part of AdventureQuest, and I don't know what that is, because I don't do a lot of online gaming. Or any, since StarCraft.

Capcom Teases New Joystick, Game Collection, or Both

Video GamesCapcomVia Twitter: A new challenger appears. Tune in for a special announcement tomorrow. A short video shows a bunch of classic arcade games reflected in Sanwa-ish arcade buttons.

It could just as easily be a new controller and Switch collection, but hey, it looks interesting enough to tune in. I mean, I'm posting about it. Not that I need some news or anything.

MusicStickersVia Touch and Go: SHELLAC The End of Radio (Peel Sessions Double Album). There are two LPs and a t-shirt, the latter of which is kind of hard to come by. There aren't a lot of Shellac shirts of the authorized variety available on the regular.

Many tracks from Shellac Peel Sessions have made the rounds and Im not quite sure if these are the ones I've heard or not - there's a particularly great "The End of Radio" from just after Mr. Peel's departure of this mortal coil. Anyway, I ordered it, you should look at it. It's due in June.

SNK and Capcom Have New Hardware

Video GamesNeo-Geo RevengeVia a few outlets: Investor meet brings interesting tidbits. SNK reported SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy sold over 300,000 units and the mini Neo Geo outperformed expectations. As such, they're working on "Neo Geo versions 2 and 3" as well as a new Metal Slug game.

No idea if we're talking an all-in-one, arcade machine, new consoles with cartridges, or what. I'm all ears if it's a new 16bit console with s-video and cartridges.

As for Capcom, meet the Capcom Home Arcade, a garish but seemingly high-end arcade stick that needs HDMI and USB connections to put 16 arcade games on your TV. It's only for Europe, and it's a licensed product from Kochmedia - not Capcom directly - and it's over $200. But it has Sanwa parts, so that's exciting. It might not be for you, but it's certainly worth seeing.

Highlights are many - Alien vs. Predator, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Darkstalkers, and so on. It's still expensive.

Snake Mountain May 1 - $600

Masters of the UniverseControl!Via Super7: Masters of the Universe Snake Mountain. It ain't cheap - as Hasbro has dragged their feet to do a follow-up to the pricey Sail Barge, Super7 and Mattel have a $600, 3-foot tall, 4-foot wide Snake Mountain for your house. That price does not include shipping, either.

This is currently in that "Golly I want one but... how much?" The detail is stunning and the features are wonderful, and it makes me kind of wish I skipped Castle Grayskull to wait for this one. Inflation is real, and I commend them for getting this monstrosity out nearly 10 years after the line launched. Never give up hope, toy collectors!
