Comments

Did Splatterhouse really have such a cute image attached to it in Japan?!

This is wanpakku grafitti which is the goofy parody version of the game, so goofy to the point the usual gory and evil demons are replaced with a Pumpkin as the main antagonist

Thanks! I had never even heard of that before.

Huh... is there a reason why Rally-X is almost never included in these?

Rally X never came to NES/Famicom, so it's not here

The second compilation seems worthy just for Mendel Palace/Quinty.
