    Retro Game Challenge Needs to Sell 100,000 Copies to Justify Localizing Sequel - Nintendo Life: DS

    Retro Game Challenege is a collection of new NES-style games spanning all genres, and it's probably one of the best DS games out there. It has shooters, platformers, weird racing games, and even a DQ-style RPG. It's hard to explain in one post, but trust me, you'll like it, so buy it. You all owe it to yourselves to buy this game so that we can eventually see the sequel released as well! Buy it and spread the word, please!

    Hint: DS isn't region-locked. You can import.

    I'm stuck at the RPG part. RPG's are bullshit.

    I've finished it. Great game, brings back so many memories of the 80's. The Haggleman series is my personal favorite. Though Haggleman 3 has that damn Ninja Gaiden bird.

    Gaudia quest actually gets kind of interesting later on, though those dungeons are insanely long. It's a real endurance challenge just to reach the bosses, but then the bosses go down fairly quickly.

    Also you start getting some major WTF moments as the story progresses.

    Well, even coming from someone who likes a good console RPG now and then, he's got a point. There is something vaguely "bullshit" a Role Playing Game in which one does no role playing. I guess that's why I mostly stick to action RPGs.

    I absolutely love this game and it would suck hard if the sequel wasn't released in the US... though it has a few games I doubt will gel with US gameplay like the detective game. Ah well, we'll see. Hoping for the best!

    This game is awesome. I like how you can look up hints in the magazines just like I used to do. I didn't enjoy the RPG game as much as the others, but it was still good.

    I would love to see the sequel make it over here.
