Ganbare Goemon Sarawareta Ebisumaru (Game Boy) – Import Gaming FTW! Ep. 22


My fourth review of the 3,526 Ganbare Goemon games published in Japan, Ganbare Goemon: Sarawareta Ebisumaru for the Nintendo Game Boy. This is a really great game that not only is completely faithful to what makes the series so great, but is also ridiculously cheap and easy to find as well.

    Goemon was something that I connect to. It's one of my fave series. Despite KOnami is a laughable hack, I wouldn't mind some other company handling the IP a bit.

    I'd say you should correct yourself: Goemon didn't "turn into a template for pachinko machines"
    First: That is a PACHISLOT. Yes, there's difference. A HUGE one at that. One is an interactive slot machine, the other is a faster Plinko with more limited interaction.
    Second: the Pachinko and Pachislot template is older than Konami. Maybe older than SEGA? Who knows. All that is known is that everyone did Pachislot/Pachinko BEFORE Konami, even NINTENDO did, and really… Nintendo is much more sinful than Konami at that, they sneak those things in their games, like in Pokemon.

    Oh, thirdly: the shift to mobile is actually an attempt to gather the attention of people to the franchise. Sometimes used as a last resort to bring the series back into relevancy, because in Japan the mobile game fanbase is HUGE, even more than console and portables. It's possible it fell under due to competing with other high profile mobile games of the time… After all, which would win in Japan: A dying franchise nobody cares anymore, a new franchise offering huge rewards, or a well known and lively AAA franchise?

    As such a big Konami fan, I feel like you really understand 1980s-1990s Konami U.S. marketing's truly, truly cornball and culturally insensitive approach to instruction manuals and such

    I'll have to check this one out soon. I just played through Karakuri Dōchū for the first time last weekend. Pretty good stuff other than the lack of bosses and the killer platforming in those island and mountain stages. I guess the no continues thing was kinda rough, too. Thank goodness for all those extra lives in the mazes.

    Thought I'd take a break from writing my next script, and take a look at a classic Jimmy Hapa episode. Always makes me miss you when I watch an older episode. You should do more Goemon videos. Well, you should do more videos in general, but I like seeing your take on this series. Probably because of your attention to detail, love of Goemon and the fact I hope to learn a little more about Japanese culture from you.

    This was really well made Jimmy! The pacing was and editing were really par dude! But your voice sounded dead and monotone which really took me outta the experience lol even though I love the Goemon series. Anyways Jimmy told me to check out your channel so doing it now! We should collab sometime since I fucking love retro Japanese games too. Lemme know and send me a PM on facebook and lets brain storm. Would love to give your channel a shout out^^

    Amazing video. How I wish they can revive Goemon on Switch…N64 version on modern technology would complete my dream.

    I recall that there was one Game Boy Goemon game released in 1998 called "Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon." How does Sarawareta Ebisumaru compare to that one? Cool video by the way.

    Wow, your review of this game is amazing! I came here looking for help in beating the stage with the girl. It just goes on and on and on. I found all of the pearls fairly quickly and then spent ages platforming until I reached a section where the only way across is to diagonally jump onto a single block which is timed to disappear. It's so punishing! I was going to review it myself but I doubt I'm going to able to finish it.

    I wish Goemon had some sort of Collection with all if not most of the games in one place they look like a lot of fun

    Great series on Goemon! I still own my copy of Mystical Ninja 64. What other Goemon games will you review? It's not JP-only, but I'd love to see a retrospective on Goemon64.

    love this series but i don't think anyone can say Konami will be their favorite game publisher anymore.

    Another good review way to go bro lol did you vote goemon for smash that bring him back up to fame and glory

    LMAO! Mackin' Matt strikes again! Great review, my friend! I LOVED the Konami USA marketing guy. The voice that you did sounds like a hybrid of Hank Hill and your impression of me. It was amazing. As for the game, it looks really good. I may have to eBay it sometime. Gotta love the region-free capability of the earlier Nintendo handhelds. Anyway, keep up the awesome work:)

    Give Goemon the chance he deserves. Vote for the Mystical Ninja to be the next Smash Bros. DLC through the official ballot.

    I was so ready to comment and call you out for leaving out the English European release, but then you acknowledged it at the end! Nice job with the whole video. Konami GB Collection Vol. 3 is not as cheap but still not expensive, with loose carts going for about $20.
