This is the game I DEFINTIELY remember THE MOST of the Mystical Ninja series. Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon on the N64 :) . I never had a chance to play the Goemon game on GAME BOY , but remember seeing it in a Caldor's that used to be around where I live, long ago when I was a kid. The one thing that throws me off that why is there no Yae in the game screenshots when she definitely is CLEARLY on the box cover's box art. Very confusing to me, but all in all, DAY 1 purchase for me the day it comes out onto the North American eShop.

The very first games weren't that great however. They lacked the personality of the later games. Never played this so I will be getting this as soon as it comes out.
