Title: Piko Interactive's Jim Power preorder
Post by: vestcoat on May 16, 2020, 07:24:46 PM
Never heard of Piko before and just stumbled across this. Not a new game, but still pretty cool that Jim Power is getting a LICENSED release on the TurboGrafx after all of these years!

Interesting.  I have the PCE game, but I suppose I'll pony up for this too, because collectard.  It's very colorful (like unicorn puke) but it's not a great game to play.

Is it really licensed by... I guess by Konami, or is it just licensed from Loricel or whoever the hell owns Jim Power nowadays?

Fully licensed from the creator's estate. Some details in the kickstarter:

Really cool how many odd-ball consoles Piko supports: Turbo, Amiga and... an Impossamole port on the Jaguar? Damn.

The game has apparently been sent for pressing and should ship before the end of the year.

Is this the same as the original PCE CD version that was sold or does it have changes made to the game?

I don't think anything has changed in the TG-16 version.  Maybe they updated the copyright date and added their names, but the game itself is likely unchanged.

There's a update concerning delays, but it's only for backers to see, and they removed the page on their site for preordering.  Hmmmm.....
