I have to agree, the name is a proper mistake for such a great game..

I had the chance to play Final fight revenge on a retron 5. Half decent game. Shame it did not get out of Japan though. it came out late in the saturns life so maybe if it was on a different console it would have done better.

Yeah, there are many games that were never exported from Japan that are quite good. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Hold up, Sega Saturn games on a Retron 5? How does that work?

Sorry got a bit mixed up there. His Windows computer and retron are connected to the same TV. He just used an emulator on his windows. Sorry feel like a bit of an eejit now :/

Lol Don't worry about it. I was thinking maybe the Retron 5 did more than I thought it did!

Bumpity Bump.

Saturn got a truly excellent port of Athlete Kings (aka Decathlete in JP)

It's a button basher in the tradition of Konami's Track & Field but it's got 10 events with a Decathlon mode and arcade mode (it was a Sega arcade release too). It got a follow up on Dreamcast and PS2 but the Saturn version is the best. Superb in 2 player mode. There's a sequel called Winter Heat which supports up to 4 players.

Here's me doing a playthrough of Decathlon mode.  The character I pick is a tribute to Daley Thompson; double Olympic champion.  :)

And here's a video of me playing the JP version with the JP-exclusive hidden character.

I got the Japanese version a little while ago but I haven't tried it yet. Looks like I should. :)

Great shout, I remember playing this a lot when I first picked it up.

Not sure the 3D graphics have stood the test of time though??
