On this inaugural episode of Obscuriosities, we talk about mon games – games inspired to ride the coattails of Pokémon’s creature-collecting craze. But of course, unlike a Digimon or a Monster Rancher… these games didn’t make it big.
Today, we explore Kotobattle: Tengai no Moribito (Game Boy Color), Kanzume Monsters (Game Boy), Kanzume Monsters: Parfait (Game Boy Color), Kaseki Sōsei Reborn (Game Boy), and Kaseki Sōsei Reborn II: Monster Digger (Game Boy Color).
