Today I believe I might have discovered a clone of myself living in Japan. How else could this video below, combining two gaming elements which I love dearly – The King of Fighters series and retro gaming, be created and executed to such extreme bliss.
Now, I’ve talked about The King of Fighters several times here; probably a bit too much that it’s driven away any readers we have left. (Heck, what am I kidding, we didn’t have readers to begin with.) Anyway, this video, posted by a Japanese YouTube user Bash4208, inserts a creative spin on that 3-on-3 fighting game series by blending in a who’s-who of Famicom (NES) stars. And what better name fitting for such a piece of media than calling it The King of Famicom.
Ooo… I can already feel my knees shake with anticipation. I won’t spoil it for you, oh-no! You’ll just have to check out for yourselves. See if you can guess each character’s respective franchise.
A much grateful thanks to GoNintendo.com for finding this gem.

Something more entertaining than me:
This is a note to anyone who happens to stumble upon this blog.
One of the most amazing pieces of DS software available today is a little gem called Retro Game Challenge. It has a sequel, but it may never make it down here. :(
Siliconera: So about Retro Game Challenge 2…
Ken Berry, Director of Publishing: It looks very unlikely that we will localize and bring it.
We’ve gotten tons of e-mails from fans that say ‘thank you so much!’, ‘we love Retro Game Challenge’, ‘it’s my favorite DS game of all time’, but when you look at the sales numbers that actually picked it up and really being vocal about it, it’s pretty small compared to the other DS owners out there. The sales aren’t quite there to justify bringing the sequel.
JI: Fortunately, we got that title, but honestly it has not reached our expectations sales wise. It’s tough to bring the game over. If the sales of Game Center CX 1 dramatically increase we will of course consider it. It’s up to you guys.
S: OK! Tell my readers how many more copies need to be sold.
JI: We have to reach 100,000.
