Sega Makes Its First NES Game Ever

Okay, not exactly. But since Sega was so busy with its Master Systems and Genesises back in the ’80s and early ’90s, it didn’t really have the time or the inclination to make games for the ol’ Nintendo Entertainment System. Flash forward 20 years — Sega and Nintendo love each other, and Sega decides to make a retro, NES-style game for Nintendo’s WiiWare service called Pole’s Big Adventure.

The preview trailer is above, and it’s kind of awesomely terrible. It’s like a crappy Super Mario clone, but you have a gun. And you’re a cowboy. And mushrooms kill. Look, I don’t know what the hell is going on, I just approve of these retro-styled games, especially one with retro-style titles which sound incredibly naughty. Right now, Pole’s Big Adventure is Japan-only, but I imagine it’ll vault over here soon enough.
