GoemonMapA few months back, I picked up a stack of random Super Famicom carts at a local flea market here in Philadelphia. One of those games was Ganbare Goemon 2, the sequel to the game released in the US as Legend of the Mystical Ninja.  Ganbare Goemon 2 never made it the States but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its charms.

Unfortunately, what those charms are, I am not precisely sure, because I don’t speak a word of Japanese. I’m actually kind of happy I don’t understand what’s going on, because this game is objectively absurd, and it’s nice to be surprised by complete insanity every once in a while:

I’ll be playing through this one nice and slow, and posting my thoughts as I do so. Stay tuned for more!
