Retro News Roundup

Retro News Round-Up – June 2014

Welcome to the first episode of the Retro News Round-Up on 1 More Castle, which takes a quickfire look at all of the May’s retro gaming going ons – including the latest ports and remakes, hardware and accessories, homebrew, fan translations, and a bit more besides.

This month installment includes a live action adaptation of much loved 1992 platformer Another World, a trio of NES fan translations, and a release date being set for the RetroN 5 at last (well, for the US at least).

The relevant links for this month’s episode can be found below:
