Sunsoft announced its return with a short teaser trailer

Sunsoft released a very short teaser for just seven seconds to say that they are back on the gaming scene. It’s a historic Japanese development company, to which we owe some great games of the past.

As you can see, the video basically shows the animation of the logo. In Japan, however, the announcement was accompanied by images that suggested the titles would come first.

The first is Gimmick!, originally published on the NES. It was a very advanced and very well made game. The launch of the 16-bit consoles was overshadowed by the launch of the new console.

The second is a game for which the word “kusoge” was apparently coined in Japan, meaning unnecessary games. It seems that the first person to use illustrator Jun Miura to describe Ikki privately and in a book was whoever came first. If the game wasn’t terrible, Miura didn’t like the fact that there was a main character, because Ikki means rebellion, so she was hoping to see something bigger.

The third game is the novel Mystery of Atlantis, also a kusoge (the term “Sunsoft” has actually gotten so much attention), with some initial complaints. This platformer is very complex and doesn’t seem to be essential.
