Invading aliens, a fight for survival and all that jazz

It is the year 2029 and aliens are attacking the earth. Have they observed mankind’s violent nature and opted for a pre-emptive strike to protect themselves? Or do they just dislike the way the people of S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team have...

Europe PAL Version

I'm a scatman

Right, let's get this dealt with from the start; S.C.A.T is an awful name for a game — we won't go into why here, but it actually stands for Special Cybernetic Attack Team. Interestingly, the cart shipped in Europe as Action in New York. That's a much...

Europe PAL Version

Posted by Marcel van Duyn


Although it's now of course primarily known for its Harvest Moon games, Natsume developed quite a few unique, entertaining little titles in the past. We've already had a few rereleased on Virtual Console, and rest assured, S.C.A.T. can easily stand with...

Oh, I've still got the Pal version on my NES, but it's still nice to see Natsume supporting the VC this constantly with great games.

Wasn't there porn about this game? I hear it mentioned sometimes but never watched it.

A 50Hz NES game... I was really hoping for Super-Hang On and this means we are unlikley to see that for at least another month. Bah.



Betagam7 said:

Nope: a 60hz NES import. :)

At least I'm presuming that's why they are listing it at 600 points for PAL gamers.

LOL! AVGN took a shot at this game due to it's ridiculous name.



vio said:

Oh, and I must say I was rather impressed with this game from a graphical stand point based on the YouTube video there. It almost looks like an early Genesis game. Good work by Natsume. Still a stupid ass name though.

I read three reviews of this game on and all were extremely positive.
If it's really that good I may just buy this one.
I'm always eager to try Nes games on VC that I never knew about.

@4 actually what i was thinking , but its funny i never heard of this game

can we get this game on the US/NA region on both the 3ds and wii u virtual console.

This game rocks, and it's name has nothing to do with feces. Since the VC release uses the American title of this game even in Europe, it may seem confusing, but in American vernacular ( "scat!" means "shoo!" in the US), its title just cheesily refers to blasting away bad guys. Curse Nintendo/Natsume for not changing the title screen of the EU VC release to its original EU title, "Action in New York!" Had they done this, a lot of misunderstandings/misinterpretations might have been avoided.
