A long time ago after missing out on the first and second run of the excellent looking RPG Beggar Prince for the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive I emailed Super Fighter Team and expressed interest in the game. And I think a lot of you must have done the same.
And good on us for doing so 😀 Just today I got a notice from Super Fighter Team that they are again selling Beggar Prince.
I did not hesitate. I’ve already ordered two copies from beggarprince.com. One for myself and one to trade. I would really love to get my hands on a copy of the Genesis version of Pier Solar Posterity Edition and in an effort to make this happen I’ve been buying doubles of newly released games like this in the hopes that someday I’ll be able to seduce someone into a trade.
For me this news came right on the heels of the announcement of the Genesis game ‘It Came from the Desert‘. These are very exciting times. If this pace keeps up can we still call the Sega Genesis a retro system? 😛
It’s my hope that the retail sleeve will look as good as this.
I’ve previously purchased Legend of Wukong, Star Odyssey and Nightmare Busters from Super Fighter Team and I can say first hand they produce quality games matched with retail packing that will make any retro fan/collector very happy.
Both Legend of Wukong and Star Odyssey are currently in my collection and Nightmare Busters has only just shipped and I’m very excited to receive it.
I don’t know if we’ll ever get another shot at Beggar Prince so if you’re at all interested now is the time.
Beggar Prince looks like a very good classic JRPG!
Thank you Super Fighter Team!
Yup. I KNEW you would be jumping on this news fast. And what? ONLY two copies? 😀 I have to admit, SFT has been on the ball this last year. Two new Genesis titles and this unexpected reissue? Nice. I actually need to get Nightmare Busters, but I’d thought I missed out on it completely. it’s good to see it still available (for the moment, at least)…
This post came from pure excitement 🙂 I didn’t think I’d ever have a chance to get Beggar Prince and then POW! Here it is.
I just want to do my small part to make sure as many people as possible know.
Do you do you a copy of Beggar Prince? You should grab it while you can and Nightmare Busters (for SNES) too!
Or… I can suggest that trading idea again if you like 😀
