Rygar - Arcade VS. NES

In the days before arcade perfect ports, developers would have to come up with different ways to bring a game home. Rygar by Tecmo had two vastly different versions - an arcade and a Nintendo Entertainment System version. Coury takes a look at both.


  • Older project, so footage is offline in this pic.

  • Arcade footage was shot at Arcade Legacy in Cincinnati Ohio the night before the episode was due to be released. Right under the wire.

  • Last video where sprite flashing will be an issue.

  • First appearance of the “ding!” game pop up.

  • Arcade version is captured via Wii Virtual Console.

  • I beat the NES version for the first time when collecting footage.
