Hey Kids! I put the Virtual Bowling CIB up last week for those enough sneaky enough to check the site out, you got a head start! There’s enough for some more of you. Also, there’s been a restock of some of the other games. More to come.

Thanks again to everyone involved in this. It’s truly amazing!

Same here, hope another restock is soon.

I’m curious about SD Gundam and Space Squash, but what exactly am I looking at here? Originals? English home brew ports?

They are all Japanese versions that have been fan translated into English and then placed onto reproduction carts with new boxes, labels and manuals.

Thanks. The quality is so good, they look original!

Aww damn, how did I completely miss Virtual Bowling?? Oh well, hopefully there will eventually be a restock

Got one last week! 😀 thanks Tusk!

Just got my Virtual Bowling in the mail, thanks to a restock! As usual, excellent quality, feels just like a legit release!

Props to Uncle Tusk and VirtuousRage, you guys did an excellent job on this!

Will this be restocked? Missed it.

Same question 🙂

So much false hope in the thread title for those that didn’t get a copy.

One of the games I’m yet to purchase is Insmouse No Yakata. Does anyone know if there is a possible English translation and reproduction for this game in the works?

I’ve purchased a lot of the other translated games through tusk and would love to get this one as well. Otherwise ill simply shell out for the Japanese copy.

How about space invaders.. i’d like to see a “tusk” release of that too please! 😀

I was just thinking about this the other day too. Would be awesome to get a repro of it.

I’d definitely want a copy of Insmouth and Space Invaders would also be really cool! I’d also be interested in a new release of Fishbone as I failed to buy it the first time around.

Yes restocking them would be something great, I’m missing some.

There are three that still remain un-printed.
– V-Tetris
– Insmouth no Yakata
– Space Invaders

The boxes, manuals, and labels for all 3 of these are completed.

Insmouth and Space Invaders have a few bits of Japanese text on menus and such that need to get patched out.
( I’m too noob at it… or I’d do it myself. 🙁 )

You can see all my suggested fixes in this old thread:
https://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=6642&viewmode=flat&order=ASC&type=&mode=0&start=0

V-Tetris has nothing that needs patching, so that one has just been sitting around waiting to go. No idea why Tusk hasn’t printed that one yet. Probably too busy and it’s just not as interesting of a title for him. xP

I haven’t spoke with him in months, but I can reach out again and see how he’s doing. 🙂

Honestly V-Tetris probably doesn’t need to be translated as it’s already incredibly easy to play with Japanese and it’s also very, very low cost (basically $25 brand new).
But the other two will be big sellers, I’m certain.

Maybe one day we will get another restock?
