Our friends at Columbus Circle are at it again.

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34-Wptj5tRk

Kira Kira was only barely a game (and one I skipped), but this is certainly a step in the right direction. Even if it just a remake of a computer classic and not a genuine new game, but baby steps. Let's hope there's no more problems with the cartridges either.

Pre-orders are up at http://www.play-asia.com/neo-heiankyo-alien/13/70bb9h, game's out next month already.

Thank you for the news and heads up.  I saw this on Instagram on various people's feeds.

My thoughts - great that they are doing this and I ALWAYS like to see new Famicom games...

BUT...  I went to pre-order it and it's $60 full price which for me at that price it needs to be great.

If it was a game I hadn't played before, or had something new, then maybe I'd have to re-consider.

But it's already out on other systems, including Gameboy and Super Famicom.  At that price it's a no.

Awesome, as long as they keep pumping stuff like this out, I'll keep buying.

To be honest, if you look at the NES homebrew scene, it underwhelms me, for much the same reasons as L__E__T mentioned; expensive games (Over there though, maybe $80 or $90 a crack), and just computer / Atari remakes. 

Since true Famicom releases like this are quite limited in number, I think it is not so bad to support them, as this support will help get more (and better) products produced.  I feel the scene is just starting out, and growth will be inevitable if people continue to support

Please check out my gaming blog, FC Game Land, for information and my own personal thoughts on Famicom and other imported games.  I will also list items for sale on there, for those who are interested.
