They're not doing an MVS release of Andro Dunos 2, are they?

Not that I give a shit about Ganryu, but it's be nice to see licensed kids drop for less than a loose MVS cart goes for

Idk, but the switch version has this little MVS kit in the CE.

I got the Andro Dunos 2 MVS Switch version.
Same here. I picked up a regular ps4 copy of Andro Dunos II.

I’m not interested in the repro rereleases, but I figured $30 wasn’t a bad price to check out Andro Dunos 2.

I read on Twitter they have just announced Ganryu 2 too, but can't find a source.

Edit: it was just a logo tease with no announcement:

That’s interesting. I didn’t know they were planning to attempt a Ganryu sequel. Thank you for sharing that bit of news.

That's the way to go, yet, I'm still not sure. AD is one of my die-hard favorites, so this sequel can only loose in comparison. Obviously the whole trick is to forget any comparisons between the two and just play the sequel carte blanche, but it's easier said than done. There's hope my curiosity will win, though.

Shit is wack as hell. ADII not having music or assets by anyone that had anything to do w/ ADI, is s t o o p i d.

...and, in true bootleg stylee-they are going to stamp the back of the manuals. There is also a disclaimer that SNK hasn’t authorized or approved this. This is barely a step above NGF.

Thanks Tonk for sharing this for those interested. I just got the email about the aes preorders and Andro Dunos II.

Looks like the Andro Dunos II preorders are now up for anyone looking for that one as well:

Sup wataru330, I definitely get what you’re saying regarding the repros. Though they’re not for me either, I know there’s a demand for stuff like that (all those nes and snes “iam8bit” repro carts come to mind).

Regarding ADII, that makes sense, though what you said could apply to a lot of retro follow-up projects like Blaster Master Zero, River City Girls, Shinobi 3DS, Sonic Mania, Streets of Rage 4, etc etc

They said entire catalog but where is the 1st Breakers game?

Good catch. I wonder if they’re holding back due to the upcoming “Breakers Collection”.

That's standard though. New releases for old platforms are never licensed by the platform owner. This is maybe barely different than NCI's releases. They're even selling Bang Bang Busters on AES again.

Bit off topic, but if anyone still for some reason wants NCI's release of Andro Dunos for NGCD, Goldenshop in Hong Kong still has it for sale for the normal price. You don't have to pay hundreds of dollars for it on Ebay, like people are doing. Not that I'm suggesting you necessarily support that release.

And ADII is a licensed fan sequel.

Yo whats up oliverclaude, how is everything?

I hear ya. These new sequel projects usually don’t quite live up to all the hype, but the trailer at least looked like a solid time for the $30/or a fun 1cc attempt.

I'll buy it, but only if they remove Pielle from Breakers.

Bang Bang Busters and Ganryu released last year already. All of the materials that go into the game, snaplock case, cart shell, boards, they’re all the same as an NCI bootleg.

Gotta love how the voice actor was an inch away from the mic when they recorded his lines.
I'm forever amazed that the sound engineer was like "....yeah, good enough."

I should stop being autistic but the accuracy of the inserts and labels vs original games is giving me headaches

I noticed my local game show stocked a few of these Pixelheart titles, but no Breaker or Andro. When I asked the guy at the front if they were gonna get these he looked at me like I had 5 heads. Breakers is one of my favorite games so to have it on a home console would be nice.
