Shack's Arcade Corner: Denjin Makai

We take a look back at a side-scrolling beat'em up on this week's episode.


This week on Shack's Arcade Corner, we take a look at Denjinmakai, or Denjin Makai.  The game is a side-scrolling beat 'em up developed by Winkysoft and published by Banpresto in 1994. Originally released as a coin-operated arcade game, it was later ported to the Super Famicom under the title Ghost Chaser Densei. Denjin Makkai featured six playable characters with special moves. The arcade cabinet was super minimal, featuring two buttons and a joystick for input. The game never made it state-side as it was a Japanese exclusive release. Check out this video to find out more about Denjin Makai
