Mappy Kids is a Japan-only Famicom sequel to Namco’s seminal arcade classic, Mappy–does this new generation of cutesy mouse critters have the same charm and solid gameplay of its predecessor? Um…click the video?

Big thanks to Cole for telling me about Mappy Kids in the first place and requesting an episode on it, and Niko the Wii Guy for providing the stereo-remixed Mappy Kids and Mappy Famicom OSTs for me on such short notice.
