Why was the phantom arcade game revived after 27 years?

Interview with Original version director Ryuichi Nishizawa
and Strictly Limited Games co-founder Dennis Mendel



Quote
What's interesting is that the graphics in old 3D games don't look good anymore, but the graphics in old 2D games are still attractive enough. 2D graphics are timeless, and even with just a few screenshots of Clockwork Aquario this year, we've received a lot of feedback from gamers around the world. People soon realized the beauty of the game and reminded me that Weston was making great games at the time. I was really impressed that the media around the world reported and we all shared the joy of finally releasing such a beautiful game.

Not familiar with the song, but  as a comic lover the name "Wonder boy" reminded me of Robin The Boy Wonder.

Wonder Boy Asha in Monster World - Interview with Director Ryuichi Nishizawa



Quote
You no longer need to be an elder to talk about the Wonder Boy series with tremolos in your voice.
Since the series has returned to the forefront with a silversmith's remake - Wonder Boy The Dragon's Trap at Lizardcube and Dotemu, and a brand new tribute episode - Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom at Game Atelier, it's been quite a feat.
The two previous projects were French, but now the creator himself, Ryuichi Nishizawa, who will be responsible for giving a second youth to Monster World IV.

Why Are There So Many Independent Physical Publishers These Days?



Quote
Generally, this trend feels like good news for the companies which are facilitating this process, the developers who are getting a bit of much-needed extra cash, and of course the players who not only have more games to play but can start building up their physical collections more.
The fear that digital is the future, for now at least, will have to wait, because independent physical publishers have proven that physical copies are still heavily desired, especially ones of indie games.

Clockwork Aquario Developers On The Restoration Of Westone's Lost Arcade Gem



Quote
Ryuichi Nishizawa: Games have always progressed along with technology, so the stereotype that future games are always better than the past may have something to do with it.
It was kind of hard to imagine that an old game would stay in people's memories and that it would come back into the spotlight.
And thanks to the evolving technology, past works can now run on the latest gaming platforms.
