This Thursday Retro Game Master Takes on Bonanza Brothers

This week on Retro Game Master The Kacho takes on Sega Mega Drive shooting platformer Bonanza Brothers as they loot banks, mansions and casinos.


Released in Japan in 1990 as an arcade game, Bonanza Brothers was later ported to a number of systems including the Sega Mega Drive. In the game, players take on the roles of brothers Robo and Mobo as they work their way through buildings stealing goods, avoiding guards and working their way to a blimp awaiting them on the roof.

The show goes live only on Kotaku at 8 p.m. eastern this Thursday, followed by more weekly episodes "airing" on Kotaku at the same time and day through September. And unlike with television, these episodes will stick around on our site so you can watch them at your own leisure.

Game Center CX produced 15 seasons of gaming content in Japan, with Shinya Arino playing through dozens of Famicom, Super Famicom, PC Engine and Mega Drive games. These first U.S. airings of the episodes includes English captions for Arino and English dubbing for his off-camera announcer.

If you missed it, make sure you go watch last week's episode now. Licensing prevents the show from being seen outside of North America.
