    Wow. Now there's something I never expected to get an official re-release, even on the Virtual Console.

    I can honestly say that I never, ever, ever expected that would even be a possibility. Strange but sort of cool, even if the game isn't any good.

    I'm asuming the title doesn;t translate to have anything to do with Convoy fighting the Nazi's?...

    I believe I read it translates as "Return of Optimus Prime" or something.


    If "Nazo" did mean "Nazis", it would translate as "Optimus Prime's Nazis" or "Nazis of Optimus Prime".

    Don't think so, that one is called Return of Comvoy... I've never even heard of this one.

    Ooooh a pleasant unexpected suprise.
    I'm not familiar with the game, but I hope it makes the Virtual Console elsewhere.

    Wow, it's amazing what a successful movie will make spring from the woodwork... and after all these years it's STILL unbeatable fairly!

    The irony is that to beat the first level you just have to run to the right the whole way...

    What is it with Japanese developers and really bad licensed games based on mecha franchises? None of them are any good.

    :lol

    To clear the air the title translates to Mystery of Convoy.

    It was like the programmers forgot to write the health bar system and were like "ah screw it, one hit kills you" and none of their superiors cared enough to say anything.

    It's funny that Optimus' death was still a mystery to Ultra Magnus.

    Oh man, this was like the worst game I had ever played on the NES (but not as bad as Double Dare). I remember playing it on an NES emulator. I gave up on it pretty quickly, but I think there are a few YouTube videos of the game straight through. You had to fight a big Decepticon symbol and The Nemesis as the level bosses.
