Elevator Action Returns for the Sega Saturn

Episode 34 – I really dislike the term “hidden gem” because it’s the go-to phrase for YouTube click-bait creators, but Elevator Action really does fall squarely into that category.  Released by Taito into the arcades in 1994, it was the follow-up to the original 1983 arcade game, which itself was released on the NES.  Elevator Action Returns was ported to the Sega Saturn by Ving in 1997, and unfortunately was not released on the Saturn outside of Japan.  The game sells for well north of $100 on eBay, but if you’re just looking to play the game, you can pick up Taito Legends 2 on either the Playstation 2 or Xbox, as it includes the original arcade version of the game.  Do something, because Elevator Action Returns is an awesome game.
