There aren’t too many gamers nowadays that remember the TurboGrafx 16, let alone had one. I, sadly, can claim both. Though the TurboGrafx may have failed, a few fine games came out of it. Now it looks like mobile gamers are going to get to experience them, as Hudson has announced plans to bring TurboGrafx games to cell phones.
According to Mobile Industry, Hudson has announced that they’re bringing Chew Man Fu, a classic puzzle game that has players guide four different spheres onto tiles of their respective colors while avoiding enemies, to cell phones and the Nintendo Wii. John Greiner, President of Hudson, had this to say about Chew Man Fu and the possibility of more Hudson games for Mobile users:
“Chew Man Fu represents an era of gameplay during which Hudson established itself as a creator of fun games that were easy to pick up and play, and also appealed to a wide range of gamers. With such a fantastic catalog of games released over the last 30 years, Hudson is in a great position to bring back some of these classics to a whole new generation of gamers.”
Though Hudson does hav some great games, will those games have enough market appeal to be successful? It has been quite a while since the last great TurboGrafx game, after all. Chew Man Fu is due for release sometime in March.
