Japan Gets 20 More Namco Arcade Games
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
As if the lack of Namco arcade game support in the west wasn't bad enough already.
There's still no sign of more Namco games for Virtual Console Arcade outside Japan - We're still stuck with their initial three releases. Meanwhile, Japan has gotten over 20 arcade releases from Namco alone (That's about 2/3 of all the arcade games available in Japan), including classics like Splatterhouse, Rolling Thunder, Galaga '88 and Solvalou.
Prepare to have some more salt rubbed in your wounds. Of the initial list of arcade games Namco announced for release on VC, only 5 remain - So they've decided it's time to fill the list up a little by announcing 20 more arcade games.
This time around there's quite a few games the west has never seen before, but there's also plenty of games in there which would be nice to see elsewhere. The full list is as follows:
- Baraduke 2: Bakutotso Kijutei
- Dig Dug
- Dig Dug II
- Face Off
- Libble Rabble
- Marchen Maze
- New Rally X
- Rolling Thunder 2
- Tank Force
- Toy Pop
- Valkyrie no Densetsu
Which of these would you most like to play? Come on, Namco, release some more games outside Japan, please!
