@Moroboshi876 I didn't know Puyo Puyo had already released. So Japan will be 3 ahead of us once Alex Kidd arrives.

I think you will enjoy Phantasy Star. I was susprised with how much I enjoyed it. I've never really been a fan of turn based RPG's, so I skipped many of the classics. I really liked Octapath Traveler though so I thought I'd give Phantasy Star a go and I'm glad I did. I completed it in 15 hours over 3 days.

This is a really good and easy to follow guide should you ever need to use it.

There are a few times where it's not clear where you should go next, so this will save you from a lot of aimless wandering.

@OorWullie I'm a big fan of Dragon Quest, I'm in love with its lore, settings, characters, designs and music, and it's turn-based. So my RPG experience is with turn-based, but don't really like strategic RPGs.

Being a 36 yo with a job and a daughter, my increasing backlog makes me feel less and less guilty for checking specific things in walkthroughs, in order to know what to do (not how) when I'm stuck and don't seem to find what's next. You should see it this way too. We don't have a handful of games like when we were children anymore. We don't want to spend months with a single game. As long as it's not following step by step what a walkthrough says, I think it's fine.

I don't know if Puyo Puyo already released in Japan, but some news piece here in Nintendo Life stated that Gaing Ground and Puyo Puyo were going to be released in the West in February. And a little before that article there was an interview with M2 people where they said Virtua Racing had caused delays in the releases (let's not forget they initially planned one or even 2 games per month, and after that it's been 1 if we were lucky), but it should be OK now. So I still expect those 2 games to be released this month.

Tonight's the night for those who want the physical edition of R-Type Dimensions. I'm going to take a pass, though. A 56 euro purchase with just an artbook and a few more little things isn't worth it to me. I would gladly pay that if a soundtrack was included. It's not.

And as for the standard edition it would be 36 for a game I actually have on Xbox 360 already.

I'll buy R-Type when it gets released in Hamster's Arcade Archives though. 7 bucks for the most faithful arcade experience with coin adding feature and stuff is OK to me.

Very excited by this Konami Arcade collections announcement. Really hope they offer additional instalments and get to some of their all-time classic arcade games from the 90s. SUNSET RIDERS, MYSTIC WARRIORS and TMNT are top of my list please!

@Lroy I highly doubt they're going to spend extra money on reacquiring some licensed games, especially when they've been so cheap as launching these compilations digital only.

For Christ's sake, Konami's 50th (50th!) anniversary deserves at least a standard retail release, and those 24 games fit into any modern disc or card. C'mon!

Amirite?

By the way, I ended up pre-ordering R-Type Dimensions EX collector's edition. I'm weak.

@Moroboshi876 You’re probably right but oh well, I can dream (and play the games on MAME until then 😜).

This week we'll see the release of ACA Neo Geo Samurai Shodown V Special, which is the last of the announced titles for that system. It probably means they're done with Neo Geo.

On the bright side, the slowdown of these releases has apparently meant that Arcade Archive titles have been releasing more often lately.

Anyway, it seems that after Time Pilot (which was released without almost any prior notice), Konami arcade games are starting to be released on Switch too, having been available in PS4 for a long time already.

The next ones will be:

-Yie Ar Kung-Fu

-Road Fighter

-VS Gradius (although this one is the NES version turned arcade version and should count as a Nintendo Arcade Archives title)
