Remember the other week how I told you about this company Super Fighter Team that was planning on releasing a brand new SNES game? Remember how I told you the game cost $60 plus shipping? Who in the world would spend that much money on an old-ass SNES game, you wonder? Actually, 600 people would.

Nightmare Busters, about a running and gunning leprechaun, sold through all its pre-orders by March 8, two weeks after pre-orders opened. That's faster than any other game in the company's history. See, guys? There's a market for everybody!

When I first posted about this game, I was confused as to the game's true origins. I spoke to Brandon Cobb of Super Fighter Team who explained to me that Nightmare Busters was originally developed by some ex-Titus Interactive employees in France and was targeted for release in 1995. Obviously, those plans fell through, but the developers retained the IP and eventually licensed it to SFT. While the graphics and gameplay will remain identical, the new Nightmare Busters has been revised significantly from what you saw in the YouTube video I posted the other day.

Soooo... mystery solved! Hit the link below for some screens from the game.

Boy, The Hong Kong Massacre sure looks like Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami by way of Stranglehold or any other John Woo flick, at least. Which is appropriate for the setting. Though I'm also reminded of Michael Mann's Miami Vice movie for some reason. I guess it can't exactly be Hotli...more
