I’ve also been spreading my love for retro gaming for quite some time on Instagram! Feel free to follow me there ^_^ Sometimes when I have less time to sit down and publish new posts on  my blog I at least try to share my recent gaming experiences through Instagram :) Everything from Screenshots, Games, Manuals, Toys etc.

Samurai Spirits for Game Boy

Recently I connected my new Super Game Boy 2 to my Super Famicom to see that it worked, and I ended up playing a fighting game! Very unlike me since I usually never enjoy fighting games, I find them pointless and I don’t like memorizing combos or just button mashing. However, Samurai Spirits was very cute, and since I beat a few guys in the beginning it kept me going ^_^

The box art is really pretty ^_^ I bought it just for that I think, I’ve had it a long time, but basically just started the game before to make sure it worked.

Samurai Spirits Game Boy Cartridge
It’s in pretty good condition, but the manual is a bit bent. I scanned some of the pages though, with all the character info. I don’t know much about fighting games, but perhaps someone will find it interesting ^_^ I do know that there’s been more Samurai Fighting games, I have Samurai Showdown for the Xbox 360, and also a Samurai Shodown for the Sega Mega Drive. It’s the same looking guy on the cover so I guess they’re sequels ;D

If anyone wonders what their names are I can read it ^^ I played as Tachibana Ukyo.

Once I had beaten about 5 opponents I got to meet the same character as myself, and he kicked my ass >_< That’s when I gave up…
