By Pid developer, Might and Delight

Japan World Cup

Japonies 2013


A reminder that Japan World Cup is real
Jan 13
So, like, this is nothing new. We briefly brought up Japan World Cup, a weird-ass horse race-betting DVD game, a couple years back. You might not have heard of it.

Incredible unseen footage of Twelve Tales: Conker 64
