To quote: The Import section is now over a month old. Thanks for tuning in and showing interest!
So far, we've built up the shooter portfolio with some old-school twitchers. Now we're going to switch gears and present a great fighter from Land of the Rising Yen.
Our release this week will be Arcade Hits: Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty, a classic fighter from the era of when beat'em-ups ruled the consoles. It had progressive and pioneering elements that many future fighters mimicked.
And in some aspects, it exceeded what the legendary games of the fighter class established. This was Data East's second major attempt at a fighting game series, after Fighters History.
The game is set in the world of the ancient novel Water Margin, also known as the Legend of 108 Outlaws. In Japanese, the novel is translated as Suikoden - and this is a fighting game in that same universe. The story surrounds 12 of the 108 outlaws, testing their skills in Liangshan Marsh (where the novel takes place) as the Gods of War judge from the heavens.
We hope you'll like this fighter as it really brings back...
