I'm not going to spend too much time on this because, unless you're a Sailor Moon "fanboy" (or girl), this will all likely just seem really lame to you. But I recently acquired all 200 Sailor Moon episodes (400+ videos when you take into account that I acquired both the Americanized versions with dialog dubbed in English and the original Japanese with English subtitles because there are significant differences in the two) so I was feeling nostalgic and decided to look up the games as well.

A quick glance at the Wikipedia page tells us that the 1990s brought us a number of Sailor Moon games, mostly for the Super Famicom (the Japanese counterpart to the Super Nintendo, which is selling for a mere 895 USD). Fortunately for those of us who can't afford to spend almost 1G on a 20+-year-old 16-bit Nintendo console, emulator ROM versions of most of the games can be found here.

The games themselves are pretty much exactly what you would expect from the folks at Nintendo: the same gameplay formulas that they used with countless other games, only this time with Sailor Moon characters.

But if you've always dreamed of being a Sailor Scout, this might be the closest you're ever going to get (unless you're one of those cosplay folks). No need to thank me; no, really... this is just what I do.
