Recca ‘92 Coming to Virtual Console

Summer Carnival ‘92: Recca was a Famicom game that was toured around Japan in a bus. Players would compete for a high score in this super difficult shooter. Not too many copies of the game were made, so it’s one of the holy grails for Famicom carts. The game is insanely fast-paced, especially for an 8-bit game and is definitely one of the best shmups for the system. It’s so good that there are way more NES reproduction carts out there than there are original Famicom carts. Nintendo will be making it a bit easier to obtain, though. Recca will soon be released for the 3DS Virtual Console in North America. (It was previously released for the Japanese VC late last year). Pick it up but get ready to get slaughtered by this game’s difficulty.
