Columbus Circle, the company that published the 8 Bit Music Power Famicom chiptune mixtape earlier this year, is going to release another Famicom cartridge. This time, it’s an actual game. Kira Kira Star Night DX, a follow up to RIKI’s 2013 Kira Kira Star Night for the Famicom and Windows PC.
Kira Kira Star Night DX follows Fami-chan. She’s a young woman jumping around environments, attempting to catch stars while chiptunes play in the background. The goal is to get a certain number of stars before time runs out. There are nine stages total, and the game features music from Takeaki Kunimoto, Yuriko Keino, Yuzo Koshiro, Nobuyuki Koshiro, Tappy, Manami Matsumae, Hally, Bun, Robokabuto, Yasuhisa Watanabe, and Takeshi Yokemura.
People will be able to import Kira Kira Star Night DX in July 2016. It isn’t officially licensed, but will work on Famicom systems.
