I wish Kaiser Knuckle would get an arcade archives release. It’s never been released outside the arcade to my knowledge except emulation.

Why Pirate Pete and not Jungle Hunt? Is there something not PC with Jungle Hunt maybe I’m guessing?

I'm going to be a dickhead and captain obvious but as I always say in every thread about mini consoles: it's cool to see companies putting care into their old back catalog and pleasing fans, but who the fuck cares about the game list aside from that when you're just going to jailbreak it to run MAME on it again.

Taito ain't gonna give me The Destroyer from Jail on their EGRET II Mini cabs? Fine I'll do it myself.

I'm seeing a conspicuous lack of Darius and Ray-series shmups.
Yeah, I'm a bit worried that RayForce won't make the cut, though it would be fucking awesome if they included an unreleased arcade game into the mix like R-Gear or Recalhorn but I'm not holding my breath for such things to happen...

Here's the recent batch of titles announced for the Egret II Mini according to the official website (https://taito.co.jp/mob/topics/14818):
  • Adventure Canoe
  • Kyuukyoku Tiger (Twin Cobra)
  • Gun Frontier
  • Growl (Runark)
  • Hat Trick Hero
  • Rayforce
  • Puzzle Bobble 2X
  • Bubble Memories
Really happy to see that RayForce managed to get in. I'm also very happy to see that Gun Frontier was also included, given that this is one of Shinobu Yagawa's favorite games and that soundtrack. Also, i'm really surprised Twin Cobra was included, because M2 was also porting it to the Nintendo Switch. It gives me hope that Twin Cobra II will make it but i'm not holding my breath on that one. There's also two expansion titles: Birdie King & Puchi Carat. That leave us with 7 standard and two expansion games left to announce.

Excellent to see Darius Gaiden being included. It's really awesome to see Truxton being included as well and damn! Hi-Score Girl really did wonders by featuring Kaiser Knuckle both in the manga and anime to officially release Dan-Ku-Ga. :D Although, i gotta say that i was a missed opportunity not to include the unreleased Recalhorn. Oh well...
