My Xmas vid! Why not celebrate the birth of GOD's child then to play as GOD himself! That's right, altough heavy retranslated and toned down, there are still too many hints on this unique (and personal favorite) Super Nintendo game to fool anyone. Enix gave the SNES the definitive GOD vs THE DEVIL game, that brings so many fond memories to anyone who was fortunate to play it back in 1990 (Let hope Nintendo and Square-Enix put this quickly on Wii VC, eh?). This small vid demonstrates the distinct 2 types of gameplay on Actraiser, both to the music of Yuzo Koshiro (of Streets of Rage fame). Ill be rediscovering this gem well into Christmas day, so to all, Merry Christmas from Shiryu! v ^_^
PS: If you're a true ActRaiser fan, make sure you get the AGTP (Aeon Genesis Translation Proclamation) translations patch for the original Japanese version of the game. It's simply perfect, with no name changing ("Lord" is "God", "Tanzra" is "Satan", etc...) and much harder then the original US/Euro release.
Update: Confirmed on the Wii Virtual Console, the first ever Enix title on the system!
Update: The wait is over, now available on Wii VC PAL on this day, April 13th 2007.
Update: Finnally across the Atlantic, out now on American Wii VC on this day, May 28th 2007.
