This week in Retronauts, we go (Captain) Commando
We've had a string of NES-themed episodes based on backer requests lately, but this will be the last of them (at least for a while): A look into the NES years of Capcom.
I have more to say about this topic (courtesy of a separate backer request), so I won't belabor the details now. But basically, Capcom started out as an arcade developer with an internal division dedicated to creating Famicom/NES ports of their coin-op titles. In time, though, the home console division took on a life of its own, creating some of the finest original (and semi-original) titles of the 8-bit era.
Or at the official episode description says:
By our powers combined! (With the backing of Larry Froncek.) We delve into Capcom's NES years, also known as the point at which a fledgling arcade developer became a world-class console powerhouse.
We earnestly request the courtesy of an iTunes Review
The music this episode all comes from various Mega Man games, because, hey.
