I feel like Gradius is their most flawless franchise. Goemon had a few stinkers (mostly on Sony systems, but still).

Also Goemon 3 and MNsG are his best games tbdesu.

The 64 game was one of the earliest games I remember playing (I'm 21, don't shoot me oldfags). It's actually really good, almost like a hybrid/compromise between SM64 and LoZ:OOT. Maybe a little easy though.

The 2nd N64 game is actually hard as fuck (for me at least) but also very good. The whole series has amazing music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rcpLWo-GeU

Still looking out for the fan translation of the 3rd Super Famicom installment to be finished, one day...

No you're spot on. Mystical Ninja only has a couple tricky spots, the robot fights can be very confusing, and the platforming wasn't always so smooth, but it wasn't that much of a challenge. Goemon's Great Adventure was hard as fuck though.

>> No.4414149

There's a recent cameo in the Bomberman Switch game.
There might be still a chance after the cancelled PS3 game they reskinned as shiny graphics for a Pachinko slot machine.

>>4414092
>>4414110
Second N64 game is a nice followup to the four main SNES games, but few games come as good as those, when the series was at its prime.
I would recommend "Space Pirate Chin King" (Uchuu Kaizoku Agokingu) on the PS1 since it's 2D and was originally developed as a follow up to the SNES games, "Ganbare Goemon 5". It's in the same style as the third game but that will mean of course it has a significant language barrier.
Other games in the series feel like pale imitations or different visions from the SNES games.

>>4409068
>No, it's more likely he's one of those assholes who's being pedantic about localizations.
You had to bring your anti-weaboo militantism here in a thread about a series which owes a lot of its messy Western release situation to bad localisation.
3 different games (4 counting the cancelled US ver. of the PS2 game) with the same name, and the only other one with a barely different name.

Konami's idea of localising the first SNES game was scrubbing almost all writing from backgrounds the 4Kids way and changing their names to ying yong dong names and vomiting a story script that makes no sense with how hard it was censored.

>>4412584
Tbh the GBA version of Shin!Goemon is so bad it's almost criminal.
I hear the PS1 version is better but not by much.

The DS game was really fun and had a lovely artstyle. Lord knows why it wasn't localised

I never got why they kept the Japanese songs but removed the voice acting from the opening scene in the NTSC/PAL versions, and then in the sequel kept the voice acting but removed the songs....

Just my guess, but I think they're making fun of Takarazuka Revue (all-female theatre musicals, often incorporating heavy european aesthetics, inspired by Rose of Versailles and such), and/or Visual kei bands like Malice Mizer, which were at the peak of popularity in 1997 when the game came out in Japan
