[video] Retro Game Challenge Debut Trailer!! DO WANT!

// Submitted @ 12:45 AM on 12.18.2008

February just got a WHOLE lot more exciting. If you're any kind of retro gamer and you own a DS, this is going to be a must buy. Do yourself a favor and check out this trailer!

I can't wait! I didn't know that it was going to have a full-blown RPG to play! I love how you have your brother (or friend?) sitting and watching you play. That just makes it all the more nostalgic for me.

For those who don't know, Retro Game Challenge is a game that allows you to experience the era of 8-bit gaming. You get a new console (NES/Famicom-like) with a couple of games to play. There's even a magazine that you read daily that bears a striking resemblance to Famitsu or Nintendo Power. As things progress, you attempt to meet certain challenges you read about in the magazine like beating games, completing levels, getting high scores, etc. You also read magazine articles on upcoming games and stuff. As you go, you get to buy more games and the games that become available are more complex. There are even sequels released to other games! It includes genres like shoot em' ups, platformers, and as I mentioned earlier, even an RPG!

This is going to be great. It's been out for a little while in Japan, but I wasn't even sure if it was coming to the US. Now I'm really happy. I hear there's already a sequel in the works which gets me pumped as well! I hope they eventually do one that takes place in the 16-bit era of gaming. That would be awesome.
