Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon: 1997 Promotional Video 18 Feb 2019
Over on the Goemon International YouTube channel I've uploaded a short video that showcases an early promo for Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon (or at the time, Ganbare Goemon Neo Momoyama Bakufu no Odori!).
In 1997, Konami sent out a promotional VHS which showcased their software titles for that year. With the Nintendo 64 being the fresh new console, Konami had quite a few games in the works, including a 5th, full-3D instalment of their beloved 'Ganbare Goemon' franchise.
The video has aged as well as you'd expect for 22-year-old CGI, but is still of interest to us as it shows us some screenshots from beta builds of the game.
Big thanks to Jimmy130 for allowing me to use this footage. English subtitles are available too, thanks to gecha!
The video also contains some flashing imagery (an infamous trait of some Japanese videos from the 90's), so please refer to the YouTube video description for the timecodes if you are photosensitive.
