They just keep releasing these although WiiU is all but buried. Shame they don't do these for 3DS, would be a better fit and it might be fun to buy few shooters and practice them on a go.
Also choice of games is sometimes fairly dubious.

They actually did a few for 3ds, in japan anyways. Strange that they never released them in america though, because they're pretty much all but ready for US release, even the little home icon with the console next to an oldschool TV changes to a TG-16 if it runs on a US 3DS.

what are the advantages of playing these games on WiiU over let's say, original Turbografx-16 console?
Last time I checked original Turbo even on ebay costs less than a Wii.

Are you sure it's not trolling?  At the very least, it's a stupid question.

Nobody is saying that playing them on Wii U is better or the preferred option, though there are some positives: it's generally cheaper to buy the roms than to buy their physical counterparts, you can play on the semi-portable tablet thingy (bonk while pooping!), and they'll look good on a big lcd without needing an rgb mod, expensive upscalers, etc.

Well,  how about this?

Necromancer

Quote
Enjoy a world of mysteries.

Necromancer is a horror RPG released for the TurboGrafx-16 in 1988. You are a hero who heads out on an adventure with two other allies in order to search for the Evil Holy Sword "Necromancer" to defeat an evil force that is about to take over the Kingdom of Ishmaelia. Defeat enemies to level up and travel the land to gather information about the Evil Holy Sword "Necromancer."

You will be able to choose your two allies among five possible candidates at the castle which is the starting point of the game. Each ally possesses different abilities so choose them wisely and make sure that you progress the game with each character's specialty in mind.
Games I Need: Bonk 3 (HuCard), Legend of Hero Tonma, Magical Chase, Soldier Blade, Super Air Zonk.

Odd one to bring out here unless it's been translated.

I thought the same thing. But apparently...

This is a Japanese Import title. Import games may contain foreign language (audio and/or text) or other references that are unknown to consumers. This RPG is Japanese only and requires proficiency in the Japanese language to play.

Why would Konami bring release this here without translating it? Odd decision, indeed...

Is there an extensive FAQ/guide for Necromancer that I am unaware of?

Crazy town.

You know, I'm really glad I came across this. I had assumed that they had translated the game. Glad I didn't buy it and discover it wasn't. Bummer. It would have been cool to play.
