    Hanjuku Hero - the second Square Enix game! Smilie And another from the Enix side...bodes well for Terranigma and Illusion of Time eventually coming.

    I thought PilotWings would have come before Yoshi's Story. I wonder when Excitebike 64 will hit as well?

    I would need some english translations for most of those titles before passing comment on them.

    Yoshi's Story is crap however, Ys is is great, Gunpei is a well known game that inspired many great developers to go into developeing games. Assault Suits Valken is one which I vaguely remember from old Mean Machine Magazines. Samurai Showdown is class, and Art Of Fighting is good fun but not the best in the series. I cannot wait to get those NEO GEO games, SNK had a stall at TGS with around 10 games all running on Wii Smilie.

    I need to get two of those Hori Fighter sticks as soon as they come along.

    Assault Suits Valken is the game many confuse as being Cybernator (SNES, Konami). Apparently it's actually far better...

    The Famicom Detective Club games are brilliant...but I'll wait to see if the SNES remake ever makes it to Europe. Fingers crossed!

    Downtown Nekketsu Koushinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundoukai is kind of like Capcom's Final Fight and is from the Technos, which did several Double Dragon titles.

    Ys I&II XD *dies with my finger cross in hope it come here soon*

    Yoshi story! Though it was an easy, I enjoyed it a lot.

    Not a patch on the snes game and when you play Yoshi Story after that it's bound to feel crap in contrast. They changed the art style which was unforgivable for starters.

    Oh no, sonic 3D blast *shudders* even 3D sonic back then was complete ass.

    Yoshi's Story is great....while it lasts....which is 45 minutes max.

    1000 points for it is taking fucking the piss as, usual.

    It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.
