It has long been documented that Metroid and Little Icarus developed closely. They share the same engine, many of the same staff, and were released at the same time-so why do people call it a sister game. However, what is less known is that “The Legend of Zelda” has its own siblings. These four games together become the title of the start window of the Famicom disc system.These used to be; Metroid, Icarus the Kid, The Legend of Zelda… and Mysterious Murakami Castle.
You probably haven’t heard of this name, because its western release didn’t come out until the 3DS virtual console in 2014, but games using the same framework as Zelda have been flourishing on Famicom all the time. Murasame Castle introduced Japanese players to Takamaru, and Western players may start to see it as an auxiliary trophy from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.
Despite its domestic success, with approximately 660,000 works sold, “Mysterious Murakami’s Castle” is still one of the few party headlines that has never released a sequel. Nevertheless, over the years, Takamaru still has outstanding performance. He was the main character of the exclusive Captain Rainbow in Japan in 2008 (where he was obsessed with Crazy Tracy in Link’s “Awakening”, which is strange), and it was also launched in the mode of Murakami Castle in Samurai No. 3 through the Samurai series in the Samurai series Nintendo’s crossover game. It can be said that most Nintendo fans may call it “Ninja Game from Nintendo Land” and star in Nintendo’s most famous franchise.
Therefore, please join us and delve into how “Mysterious MUASAM Castle” became one of Famicom’s best games, its close connection with Zelda and the legacy it has left over the years.
