Wolfteam, known for Sega Genesis games like Arcus Odyssey and Final Zone, made Tokyo Twilight Busters for the NEC PC-98. This fall their adventure game is leaving the platform and heading to the Nintendo DS.


Since Wolfteam no longer exists Starfish is handling the porting and graphic overhaul. Apparently that took longer than expected since Tokyo Twilight Busters was originally slated for February. No word on a North American release, but UFO Interactive picks up a lot of Starfish titles. They aren’t afraid of publishing text heavy games like Way of the Samurai 3 either. Perhaps, they will localize this horror adventure game in 2010.

    That looks lovely. Is it more Maniac Mansion or Elvira: Mistress of the Dark? I see a point and click-like perspective but there are HP / MP(?) gauges.

    I is confuzzled.

    • I should have explained this better, but this is horror/occult game so I wouldn’t expect it to be funny like Maniac Mansion.

      There are two gameplay systems a SCUMM style point-and-tap adventure game, and text trees for conversations. You can alter the outcome of the story somewhat.

  • More adventure games are always welcome on the DS. I’ll add this to my spreadsheet of stuff to keep an eye on.

    • This I agree with too, especially retro Japan only stuff like this.

    So it’s finally coming out? Thought it might have been cancelled. I hope the port is good after such a big delay.

    • I guess so! Starfish reslated it for fall, but they tend to delay and reschedule games all of the time so this is far from a final release date. I’m sure they’re working on it though!
