Behold the mighty legacy of Konami!
In this first part of this big KONAMI special, Knight Michiel and Peter (Retrogamepapa) talk about Konami throughout the 80s. They also each tell how they got to know about Konami and what the company means to them, or has meant to them. Peter for example grew up with the MSX and the amazing library of Konami games for that system. Which were the first Konami games we played? What are the standout titles and how many great IPs did they already start with in the 80s? All of that and more in this quest all about Konami!
A few of the games that are mentioned: Scramble, Metal Gear, Yie-Ar Kung Fu, Contra, Timepilot, Q*Bert (yes, Konami made a special one on the MSX), Goemon, Twin Bee, Knightmare, Gradius, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and of course Castlevania, amongst many more.
Retrogamepapa’s Addendum: In the second part we will discuss Konami throughout the 90s up until now.
