They used to be a huge Nintendo game maker. They did Shadowgate, Crazy Castle series, lots of racing games. Then nothing it seems. I would love Crazy Castle series on the VC. Or a new one.

They still release games, just not as often, and mainly crappy ones.

The name of the company reminds me of a mix of Tecmo and Koei. It's easy to get the three confused.

Rest in Peace ShiftyLook
I keep these Nintendo Life threads updated: Missing 3DS VC and Wii U VC between regions, Full of list first party Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear games missing from the 3DS VC, and Full of list first party Game Boy Advance games missing from the Wii U VC.

Still they should release the GB/GBC Crazy Castle games for the 3DS eshop. People love puzzlers and these were rather fun games. Plus who doesn't love Bugs Bunny.

That's the road block right there. Whatever license they had to use the Bugs Bunny character, has been expired for ages (thus, they can't legally rerelease the game, unless they remove all references to WB's property).

Sure, there can be minor alterations like how Mike Tyson was removed from Punch Out!, and why all NFL references were taken out of Tecmo Bowl, but these games would probably fall along the lines of DuckTales, Batman games, & X-Men games, where they were never released at all.

The first two Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle GB b/w games also got released as Mickey Mouse games in Japan, though there's still the issue with licensing. However, the third crazy castle got a release without a character license as a JP only GB b/w game with the Kid Klown character under the name Soreyuke!! Kid.

Kemco needs to release Shadowgate, Deja Vu, Uninvited, and the Top Gear series on the VC. They have put out a game on the 3DS VC, so there is a slim chance it could happen.

Man, I thought I was the only person on the planet who loved Crazy Castles. Especially after the Angry Video Game Nerd devoted a whole episode to trashing the series. I would definitely love to see a 3DS version of that game, WB license or not.

Heck partner with Nintendo and make it a Mario game. Jumping through pipes is kind of his deal after all.

Where's the KABOOM?! There was supposed to be an earth-shattering KABOOM! sigh delays...delays...

Oh heck yeah. I loved Deja Vu when I was growing up in fact I believe I still might have the cartridge somewhere.

And Top Gear was my favorite racing game on the SNES. I remember playing that one alot with my brother and friends. That games also holds a special place too since that was the last new (as in factory sealed) SNES game I bought from Toys R Us back when they were clearing out their SNES stock to make room for the N64 and such.
