The TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine is loaded with shooters/SHMUP games and Psycho Chaser is one of them. No, seriously. It’s a Sting made and Naxatsoft published game that’s just there. It’s not an all time classic, it’s not a total piece of garbage, it’s just relatively unknown to US and European audiences since it only came out in Japan.

It wouldn’t even have been hard to port. There are no cut scenes or option menus that require understanding the Japanese language. They just didn’t bother because it wouldn’t have been a huge hit and I can’t say I blame them. It’s just “okay.” Subscribe to Mistah MegaManFan for a new episode of The PC Engine Files every Tuesday at 8 PM ET, 7 Central. Your likes, shares, comments are always appreciated. Thanks for watching!
