    Genesis Retro-Bit rereleasing four Toaplan shmups

    tfw getting my Mega Drive news from a Nintendo site, but whatever:
    https://www.nintendolife.com/news/20..._physical_form

    Retro-Bit is going to rerelease Zero Wing, Fire Shark, Hellfire and Truxton for $45 each (or $160 if you buy all four together). The extra 32 endings in Zero Wing are also getting translated (no idea if this means that they're fixing the original translation or not).

    Copy pasting from the site I can't be arsed to write:
    • Special interview with developer Masahiro Yuge (specialized per game)
    • Full-Color, Individually Numbered Certificate of Authenticity
    • Exclusive Vintage 80’s Puffy Sticker Set
    • Vivid & Detailed Instruction Booklet filled with artwork and tips to enhance gameplay
    • Premium and original art prints
    • 16-Bit Cartridge with unique and vibrant colours per game
    • Collector’s Embossed Outer Sleeve with colourful and custom design
    • Reversible cartridge cover with embellished artwork
    • To every person who purchases all 4 shmup games in this collection: a commemorative slipcover, collectable Zero Wing enamel pin, and Thank You Card from Mashiro Yuge
    On that note, it's the 20th anniversary of the All Your Base Are Belong To Us meme.

    Hopefully they'll fix the Hellfire audio bug.

    …you know, maybe it'd be worth asking. No idea how hard is to fix that, but if they're hacking Zero Wing to add in a translation they may have been modifying other stuff as well.

    On that note, confirmed that All Your Base Belong To Us stays (the intro isn't being retranslated):

    EDIT: Hellfire audio bug is fixed

    Can someone explain what the audio bug is on Hellfire? It plays slow on Model 2's?

    Oh sweet! These games are pretty tough to get these days. Always wanted zero wing and I'm happy about the price being right.

    Retro-Bit confirmed over at the Shmups forums that these have 5v chips and have beveled edges.

    These are neat and if I didn't already have all 4 of them I would grab them. Having said that, if they do more in the future for games I don't have the originals for (Slap Fight I'm looking at you) I'm in.

    I thought the endings were already translated. I recall seeing screenshots, unless someone really went to bat editing images with translated versions of the ending texts...

    I hope this works out for them, I don't know exactly how profitable the "retro" scene is.

    4 days from now. How much you want to bet all copies are gone from bots and the like and placed on eBay within 24 hours at 2.5x the markup after the sale begins?

    I'd argue that outcome is more certain than the floor being there when I step out of bed.

    No doubt there will be flippers but this pre-order is an open window from 'September 15, 2020 through October 6, 2020'.

    So quantities should be unlimited during this time. Which means they won't be sold out minutes our hours after opening pre-orders.

    And I love hearing stuff like v5 chips, beveled edges and patched bugs.

    It feels like these games will be better quality releases compared to something like the recent Columbus Circle games (Ultra Core and Gley Lancer).

    Anyone here have some of the Columbus Circle games? How's the quality?

    I think I'm going to get this Toaplan collection. Hopefully the quality will be high and the price is pretty good at $40 USD each game if you get the full set of four.

    If you look at the individual pictures, all of the games sport a certificate of authenticity, in which it's stated that 2,500 of every cart are made.

    This little set looks neat, but I guess its not for me, overpriced re-release of existing games is just weird imo. Id rather hunt the originals (but i got em already!), at least the price is better than ewj and megaman 2 rerelease, it feels like a repro to me.
