A sequel for Legend of Kage? Really?

Taito must be reading our diary! We thought nobody liked The Legend of Kage! Taito is working to singlehandedly replicate the fall of 1987 on the DS, as both Arkanoid and Kage were released on the NES in that period. We remember seeing the distinctive rainbow-colored boxes on the shelf and being excited about playing these games in the near future.

Okay, so our love for Kage is probably the result of having been 7 and not knowing any better, combined with current nostalgia for that time. But whatever the reason, we still love it. And maybe Taito will make a better game this time that more people can enjoy!

Unfortunately, we can't tell much from the blurry scan, except that it looks like a graphically updated version of the original game, and that it's due in February of next year. It's got a lifebar, which should prevent those instant, unavoidable kills caused by a ninja tossing a shuriken at you while you're in the midst of one of those sailing, uncontrollable jumps.

By the way, the DS's aspect ratio is perfect for those jumps. The DS's size is also, unfortunately, perfect for throwing and smashing after all of the rage that makes up the average Kage gameplay experience.
