It looks like Taito was listening. Taito's publishing company, Empire Interactive, has a thread running in their forum right now, which reads thusly:
I hope you can help us out with a bit of retro advice, If you were to pay to download a Taito Classic what would your top 3 be ??
Also, without giving the game away :) would online multiplayer be important to you downloading it ??
Come on guys - post your lists and let us know what you want."
While the post doesn't directly mention Xbox Live, we're pretty sure that's what this is all about. We're also pretty sure he's talking about Bubble Bobble with that question about online multiplayer. Note to Taito: hell yes, online multiplayer is important!
So, make your voices heard, loyal readers! Registering for Empire Interactive's forums is a snap. Go do it and tell 'em what you want (and don't forget to tell them who sent you). Our list looks like this:
- Bubble Bobble
- New Zealand Story
That should be on XBLA series
