Now playing: Tengai Makyo II

To those of you who, upon reading the headline above, thought, "Tengai what?"--Tengai Makyo II: Manjimaru is a PC Engine RPG developed by Red Company (best known for being the creators of the PC Genjin--Bonk's Adventure in the States--series of games).

It's more than just a PC Engine RPG, though--it's one of the best RPGs ever made. At least, that's what I've heard. I've never actually played the game; I've just obsessed over it ever since I saw the following blurb in an issue of Super Gaming magazine.

Now that I've got a PC Engine Core Grafx II and NEC's Super CD-ROM2 attachment, though, I can stop daydreaming about Tengai Makyo II and start playing the darn thing. Which is exactly what I plan on doing this weekend...

Sweet! I look forward to hearing what you think! Do you have a translation? Or...?

There's a FAQ I can follow, Justin, though it unfortunately doesn't include any info on the game's daunting menu system. Oh, well, I'm not against a little trial and error ;)
