The very first Shinobi!

Japan is getting less and less games every month, but this has got to be the month with the least releases yet - Aside from the yet to be announced Namco arcade games, there will only be three games released in the entire month, meaning over half the VC systems will be ignored!

The only good thing about it is that all three are high-profile games, but still, let's hope Europe and North America don't get even less games because of this!

The (for now) full list for July, as short as it is, is as follows:


  • Final Fantasy III

Super Famicom:

Virtual Console Arcade:

Since June has one Tuesday left there will of course also be a final June update next week. This will consist of:

  • Tantei Jinguuji Saburo: Toki no Sugiyuku Mama ni (Famicom)
  • Marvel Land (Virtual Console Arcade)

When will Namco start releasing more arcade games outside Japan, we wonder?
