We have a great remix of some classic video game music from Mykah! This is a dance / house / EDM remix of Castlevania’s ‘Out of Time’ track originally composed by Konami Kukeiha Club for the NES game, Castlevania.
In the game, the song plays in the Clock Tower stage, right before Dracula’s Keep. If you like this, don’t forget to check out our Halloween EP.
In the week’s Romhack Round Up, we take a look at three impressive romhacks that go above and beyond the basic “alternate version of your favorite game.” These three games are essentially original titles built on the engines of tried and true classic game titles.
This week, we will look at one NES series and one SNES game that can stand on their own as original works. As usual, our romhack patching tutorial will help you get up and running with these great games.
Two exciting updates for the world of retro-gamers are just around the corner. In fact, you can pre-order one of them now and may be playing it in less than two months. Check out these innovative new consoles that are coming down the line, one from Nintendo and one from RetroUSB.
Nintendo Classic MINI NES
Release date: November 2016
The Nintendo Classic Mini NES is an official new console from Nintendo. What looks like a little baby NES has no cartridge slot but features 30 classic games built in and also has HD output and letter boxing options for high-res display. It also has temporary saves, which is a nice addition to some of these long classic games that previously had no save/continue features. The list of games is basically the top 30 games you’d want to have for Nintendo, including both Zelda games, Final Fantasy, Mega Man 2, StarTropics, Super C and more.
This awesome piece of hardware does NOT use emulation. This means it’s audio and video is far more faithful to the original NES than things like the Retron5 or handheld emulators. This also means the more unconventional games will work just fine. It also has HDMI out with expansion audio and specific ports for Famicom or NES games. All this plus built-in game genie, variable display options and – possibly the most impressive – it supports all peripherals, even the Power Glove – it’s so bad!
