Namco Bandai Upgraded Retro Anime Game Compilation With A Built In Hint Book

By Spencer . September 5, 2013 . 12:36am

imageJ Legend Biography is a collection of retro Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, and other anime video games. None of these games were released on Virtual Console or any other digital platform probably because of licensing agreements. But, you can play Dragon Ball Z: Assault! Super Saiyan, a 2D Dragon Ball fighting game released late into the Famicom’s life cycle again


All of the games in J Legend Biography have been faithfully reproduced so any tricks you remember will work on 3DS. And for people that haven’t played Go Go Ackman 3 or any other game in the compilation before J Legend Biography has a hint option which shows tips on the bottom of the screen.


Namco Bandai also added a quick save feature, but you only have two quick saves. One is for all of the Famicom games and the other is for all of the Super Famicom games (and so far that’s only Go Go Ackman 3). So, if you have a Dragon Ball: Mystery of Shenlong quick save and then quick save while playing Dragon Ball: Great Demon King’s Revival you’ll lose the Mystery of Shenlong quicksave.


J Legend Biography comes out on November 7 for Nintendo 3DS in Japan.

    I’d love to see a new Go Go Ackman game. I played all three of the SNES games and had a great time with them: very weird, and very solid. The original manga was pretty hilarious also; chicks with d!cks always make me laugh :P

    Hmm two quick saves one for famicom and one for SFC is definitely not enough, these RPGs took a heck of a long time to grind and beat, each maybe dozens of hours. At least one for each game, otherwise we d still need to copy down strings of passwords, if that’s still available.. Guess one really needs to stick with one game, beat it, before moving to another.

    Again title of first DBZ RPG is just”assault, Saiyan”, (kyoushuu, saiya-jin), Raditz, nappa, and Vegeta weren’t “Super Saiyan” yet :(…

    I remember Dragon Power(don’t remember if he was still called Roshi), oh that wizard and his love for sandwiches.

  • Suppose there’s no chance of a Western eshop release of this in English…

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. An optional hint window for rereased games like this is actually not a half-bad idea. I am all for it, maybe future games can utilize this ability too…

  • GO Namco Bandai i like new save feature.. is useful
