If you’re a TurboGrafx-16 fan you may already know Kaizou Choujin Shubibinman without even realizing it! This is the first game in the series, but the sequel was called SHOCKMAN when it was localized for North America. In total there have been four Shubibinman games, with the last one only being released physically in the 2010’s on Super Famicom after ALMOST being completely lost to history due to it having only been available as a Satellaview broadcast.
That release raised the profile of the series as a whole so these games now command premium prices, but that shouldn’t stop you from checking out Shubibinman for yourself.
