Check out what I just got in the mail… my very own copy of Summer Carnival ’92 Recca. Yes, I am aware that it is a pirate and not the super-rare official version, but even pirate copies of Recca ain’t easy to track down. Just ask me, I have literally been looking for a copy for years. I scooped this up straight from Argentina by way of the Famicom World forums, and as a bonus the buyer included a plastic cart case. It seems to be made for Master System games, but I haven’t check yet because much of my video games stuff is packed. All I know is that it holds my Recca just fine. This is the only pint-sized hard shell case I have, and it’s pretty cool. I will have keep my eyes open from now on.
And just what the heel is this Summer Carnival ’92 Recca that I have been bathering on about? Sit back, clench your teeth, watch Lance’s (from Retrowaretv.com) review below, and hold the fuck on because it is wicked!
That’s a Famicom game! The sprite count and speed are unbelievable. And that’s not sped up emulation, either. This game really does play like that; and a hell of a lot better than that video would make it seem.
