Heiankyo Alien Has Finally Come to the Famicom




Heiankyo Alien, an old PC game that’s been around since 1979, which then been made into an arcade machine in 1980 and subsequently remade for the Gameboy, Super NES, and a variety of cell phones for the last 30 years, is finally seeing a Famicom remake.

“Columbus Circle,” the publisher of 8Bit Music Power, Kira Kira Star Night DX, 8Bit Music Power Final for the Famicom and Shubibiman Zero for the Super Famicom; will also be releasing Neo Heiankyo Alien, a quirky action maze puzzler for the Famicom.

The gameplay is simple, avoid the enemies, dig holes to trap said enemies, then burry them to complete the stage. The gameplay is addicting and has been one of my go to Game Boy games.  I’m most excited about this game since it looks to support simultaneous two players and for only $49.99 at Play-Asia, it’s a no brainer for me to snag a brand new copy of a Famicom game in 2017.
