Kickstarter - Tobu Tobu Girl Deluxe aiming to release on Game Boy Color

Yes, the Game Boy Color!

Taking the cat for a walk with a balloon wasn't the best idea after all! After an unfortunate accident, the girl's pet friend went floating into the atmosphere and she needs to go skyward to save her furry companion. She must now jump, stomp, dash and flap her arms to maneuver around perilous obstacles while racing against the clock to retrieve her pet friend before it is too late!

Tobu Tobu Girl is an arcade-style platforming game for Game Boy® that will challenge even the most skilled players with new, randomly generated obstacle patterns in each run. The game will enchant you with its beautifully crafted pixel art, tight controls and an earworm-inducing 8-bit soundtrack. Longivity is ensured with unlockables, various difficulty levels, battery backed-up highscores and motivating scoring mechanics.

If you'd like to help bring this original, 2017 Game Boy title to the Game Boy Color, you can kick in some cash for the project right here.

Fans remaking The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for the SNES

A Link to the Past...again

Move over, Switch remake! Nintendo fans have taken on the task of remaking The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening themselves, and they want to bring the game to the Super Nintendo.

The team behind this remake has put a ton of work into it, and there's still a lot more to be done. They don't plan on releasing their remake until sometime in 2020! You know, as long as Nintendo doesn't swoop in and put a swift end to things.

You can check out more details on this fan project here!

Limited Run Games' Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Classic Edition GBC throwback box is gorgeous


I missed out on getting a retail copy of the original Shantae on GBC because I was a STUPID, STUPID KID...but that's a different story altogether. At least some people will be able to relive those glory days with a throwback GBC box from the gang at Limited Run Games. Hell, this is worth another purchase of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse alone!
