On This Day In Gaming History!: April 16th, 2018

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, was a platform action-adventure video game released by Konami for the Nintendo 64 on April 16th, 1998 in North America as the fifth entry in the Ganbare Goemon series.

The second Goemon game released in North America, it follows The Legend of the Mystical Ninja and features hybrid elements of platform games and action-adventure games. The story follows Goemon’s struggles to prevent the Peach Mountain Shoguns gang from turning Japan into a Westernized fine arts theater. The plot calls for three cinematic musical features and battles between giant robots; like other Ganbare Goemon games, it is peppered with surrealist humor and anachronisms.
