Digging back into the NES days with this one because I somehow missed it. Which in a weird way makes sense because I don’t think anybody that I knew back in the day would have known that Destiny of an Emperor was based on a manga. Or even what a manga was for that matter, but that’s a different issue.
Good thing we have Joey DiCarlo from So Wizard here to help take a look at this early NES RPG. Because we’re both old and can appreciate this one for what it is without wondering why it doesn’t have the sensibilities of a PS4 game.
Learn such things as:
- Did anyone in the US know that there was a manga that this game was based on?
- How hard is it to look at a manga when you can’t read it?
- At what point will Chris refuse to list all of the playable characters?
- And so much more!
