In the rest of this issue you’ll find a tribute to Falcom, the famous Japanese RPG developer who recently celebrated “his” 40th birthday, as well as articles about the development of the graphic marvel Ghosthunter for PS2, the surprisingly complex game The Simpsons: Bart vs the Space Mutants and the Litil Divil showcase CD-ROM. To find out how the machine technically works, we talked to the developers who labored on such fantastic games as Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, 1080 Snowboarding, Diddy Kong Racing, Excitebike 64 and Star Wars Episode I: Racer. You’ll also find Technos’ final guide to the sequel to bit-em-up Double Dragon II: The Revenge, which covers the arcade game and looks at all the home remakes, as well as an article on the development of the popular Dizzy Egg. You’ll also find a guide to collecting games for SNK’s Neo Geo Pocket Color, as well as our usual long interview, this time with video game veteran Matt Furniss. The latest issue of Retro Gamer is out today, and we’re celebrating the Nintendo 64’s 25th anniversary with an in-depth look at its hardware.
