Nintendo 64 Longplay [044] Mystical Ninja Goemon


Played by: Tarosan

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, known as Ganbare Goemon: Neo Momoyama Bakufu no Odori
("Go for it, Goemon: Dance of the Neo Peach Mountain Shogunate&quotWink in Japan, is a platform/action-adventure video game
released by Konami for the Nintendo 64 on August 7, 1997 in Japan and April 16, 1998 in North America as the
fifth entry in the Ganbare Goemon series. The second Goemon game released in North America, it follows Legend of the
Mystical Ninja and features hybrid elements of platform games like Super Mario 64 and action-adventure games like The
Legend of Zelda series.

The story follows Goemon's struggles to prevent the Peach Mountain Shoguns gang from turning Japan into a
Westernized fine arts theater. The plot calls for three cinematic musical features and battles between giant robots;
like other Ganbare Goemon games, it's peppered with surrealist humor and anachronisms.

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon sold nearly 200,000 copies worldwide. Reviewers praised its graphics, gameplay, and
humorous plot. Critics found the soundtrack and tunes memorable and moving, but criticized the localization,
unintuitive camera control, and dull stretches of travel through Japan. Goemon's Great Adventure followed in 1999
and Goemon Mononoke Sugoroku in 2000.

When you think of great Nintendo 64 games that are 3rd party… then you look towards this title which
is something I have never owned personally but I did own it's sequel, I may end up looking for a copy online in the
near future so I can add it to my growing 2nd N64 Collection.

This game feels completely like an anime since it has it's own theme song as well as the theme track for IMPACT the
giant robot whom spoiler alert gained the ability to talk from Ganbare Goemon 4 and is now a movie star… well
stranger things have happened and it is that unique weirdness that gives this game it's quality.

I did this with all fortune cats collected, I used all characters for each of the dungeon and used only Goemon for
the giant robot battles, these were the best feature of the game which became an important mechanic for the sequel
game… I prefer the boss battles with the single characters although I wished they gave Yae a boss battle of her

  1. This is my youth! The sound effects are so awesome and the evil laughs also! P.S. it annoys me that you skipped right past the fortune teller!

  2. I had always wondered if the movie that Impact was talking about was the ending credits where it showed all those shots from the game or if a whole different movie.

  3. Dear Japan: Since I played this game as a youth, it forms the basis of my frame of reference for Japanese culture. I'm sorry.

  4. This game was amazing. It's too bad it was the only one like it. It was cool to see the costume in smash though.

  5. I actually just learned, thanks to this game and the playthrough, that there is indeed sand dunes in what was Inaba province.

  6. i know this is old but you should haveskipped the walkthrough that it becomes sort of obvious you begin using

  7. I loved playing this game as a kid. And never remember the name of it until now! My favorite part of the game was playing the giant robot. It reminded me of Power Rangers!

  8. When I was a kid I used to teleport myself into the game, live the game, feel the game and dream that I was actually there… The magic of the late 80s 90s and early 2000s its gone forever 😔

  9. I used to play this game but I was way too young to understand wtf was going on…. I remember renting it then crying because I didn't know wtf to do. Then I would return it and ask my parents to rent it again cause I wanted to understand. They would be so pissed cause everytime they would, it would be waterworks.

  10. 1:42:08 The soundtrack is great in general but this one takes it for me. What a great song. It doesn't get any more Japanese than that.

  11. The music is entrancing….
    That Japanese snow village at night is like pure happiness….
    I felt like all my parents fighting and lifes crap melted away and I was in the village…

  12. I barely remember playing this i wss so young great times watching my bro beat everything so i could just walk around lol

  13. Oh my gosh !!!! So much memories playing this game… im sure i had the Japanese version however its beautiful !!!!!!! Need mote games like these TODAY

  14. God Damn this game took me so long to beat as a kid. And when I finally did, my mom asked me to pause the game, so I never got to see the last cutscene until now!
