Snowflake Software

The 4 Players Adaptor is a rare peripheral for the #Famicom, perhaps lacking as many multi player mash ups as other formats. The Power Glove feels like it could be a prop from Back to the Future. 
The SGB Commander is a popular controller to play #GameBoy games on the #SuperGameBoy. 
The #MegaDriveMini has a fine roster of games making it well-worthwhile seeking out the Japan exclusive version. Whilst UltraCore keeps the original hardware running decades after its hey day. 
The #PCEngine gets brand new arrivals too, but alas only in condition. Still few collectors turn down the chance to snap up a brand new retro game, especially with Final Blaster leading the charge.
Ketsui Deathiny continues to be in demand as the most technically accomplished installment of the series to date on the #PS4. 
Retro Bit Generation 2 is a very tidy plug in and play console covering plenty of Japan centric titles which should bring a  sack load of festive cheer.  Titles from Athena, a dozen from master baker Capcom and sixteen from Coconuts Japan make up the bulk of these forty two pieces of gaming history that could give a lesson to some of today's snowflake software. Strider, 1942, Ghouls and Ghosts, Knights of the Round, Captain Commando, Sword Master, Biometal: the list of big hitters is superior to the World Series Baseball team sheet.
Happy Genki Gaming.

"All Your Base Are Belong To Us"

Genki Greetings.

Castlevania Circle of the Moon demonstrates the #GameBoyAdvance's ability to recreate fine #16Bit gaming and looks luscious on the small screen. The SP version of the handheld has never looked better than the GameBoy Advance SP Naruto RPG in orange. #retrogaming

Muzzle Flash is another X-Box Genki had yet to discover and shows Microsoft's first console foray has sublime software in the right hands.

#Gleylancer reprint brings more attention to a classic shoot 'em up that was fast becoming a commodity.

Destrega is a Koei fight game on the Playstation which takes its own path to martial art enlightenment and is well worth a look.

The Keisatsu Kan Shinjuku 24 Hours shows #Konami's arcade prowess besides some fine neon streets.

The Haomaru limited edition version of the Neo Geo Mini Samurai Spirits looks outstanding in its clear finish. And, unlike the Western incarnation, the Japanese games roster of the Playstation Classic shows why Sony thought it was a viable release.

Happy Genki Gaming.

"Bumper batch of restocks this week with Soldier Blade, PC Kid 3, Kikikaikai, Ninja Warriors, Darius Plus and Kato Chan Ken Chan demonstrating the PC Engine was ahead of its time. The Ghouls and Ghosts version for the Super Grafx remains the finest.
Speaking of which, Tenchi O Kurau II is a superb version for the Playstation. The Mega Drive gets some triple-A titles back on the shelves too in Kujaku Ou 2, Rockman Mega World, Phelios and Marvel Land.

The GBA has a real sleeve of retro tattoos in Contra Hard Spirits, Castlevania, F-Zero Falcon Densetsu, Metroid Zero Mission...

The PS2 is starting to become the choice console of the retro hipster with Space Channel 5, XII Stag and JoJos Bizarre Adventure enough ID to get it into the retro expo.

A wealth of collection fillers for snap them up prices on the Saturn. Alas Ninja Warriors Again is in a different pricing bracket, but what a game on the Super Famicom. 

Finally the GameCube boasts Sonic Gem Collection, Beach Spikers, PN 03, Mr Driller Drill Land....

Happy Genki Gaming."
