100 years ago, Finland gained its independence from Russia. To celebrate, a small team of developers have made a brand new game...for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Perkele! Suomi 100 Vuotta is a collection of three minigames, each based around an important part of Finnish culture/life. So one is of course a seal going beserk and shooting lasers out of its eyes, one is a 2D fighting game and the other has you shooting at Soviet troops during the Winter War of 1939-40.

The game is shipping on an actual physical NES cartridge, and goes on sale tomorrow for €65. Aside from needing to own a NES, you’ll also need a NES Zapper if you want to blast the Russkis.
