Updates on Konix Last Ninja 2 recovery

Well, the news continues to get better – with confirmation from Mark Campbell that all the Last Ninja 2 disks were fully recovered – with the complete code, art and music recovered in all.

Not only that, but a massive bonus has been the discovery that some of the disks also contained some long lost demos which were originally seen in the Konix videos.

This includes the infamous 3D cube demo and also the Big heads game – Head Invaders. Hopefully we’ll see some videos of these soon.

There is more, with another Konix game on the cards – more soon on this as and when we have the go ahead to mention it :)

Last Ninja 2 – Konix edition recovery update

An amazing update on the recent discovery of the Last Ninja 2 disks for the Konix Multi-system. One disk has been read so far, and the results have been very positive – with the game being now emulated and running!

And here is the video of it up and running!

We guess that more work will also occur on getting the rest of the disks preserved and everything emulated in as close as to a final state as possible. The video means hearing some previously unheard Dave Lowe tunes for the first time in over 20 years.

Exciting times! More soon as we hear it!
