On December 9th, 2021 a port of the first three Valis games on PC Engine is coming to Nintendo Switch. Before that I decided to take a look at a port of the first game in the series — Mugen Senshi Valis for Mega Drive, also known as Valis: The Fantasm Soldier in North America.

The Japanese version is mildly pricey, but the U.S. release is way out of the range I’d pay for something that TBH I just don’t enjoy that much. The levels are long and plodding, your attacks are so pitiful you end up avoiding enemies instead of fighting them, and the promise of upgrades doesn’t come soon enough for the tedium of it all to sink in.
