All 18 Arcade Archives games at TGS2020 with the pictured 64th Street, two Nintendo titles, a classic Konami shmup, and many more!
64th Street: A Detective Story
Originally released by Jaleco in 1991, 64th Street: A Detective Story isn’t in-fact a detective story, but a Final Fight-style beat ’em up where the game’s protagonists Rick and Allen solve the mystery of a kidnapped female with their fists! The game plays similarly to Jaleco’s later Super Famicom beat ’em up series Rushing Beat.
Arabian is a 1983 platform game from Sun Electronics (Sunsoft that was later ported to Famicom as Super Arabian. Players assume the role of an Arabian prince who must rescue the kidnapped princess.

Ben Bero Beh
Ben Bero Beh is a single-screen platform game released by Taito in 1984 where you play as the superhero Ben who must extinguish the fire that has ravaged his apartment complex in order to rescue his girlfriend. Beware of the gas explosions, crumbling floors, and numerous enemies that aim to burn you to a crisp!
Cosmo Police Galivan
Cosmo Police Galivan is a side-scrolling action game that was released from Nichibutsu in 1985 with a Famicom port coming later, and a Super Famicom sequel also seeing release in Japan. Players are transformed into Galivan by holding the power crystal, and must destroy the Aku criminal organisation.
The Fairyland Story
The Fairyland Story is in many ways the pre-cursor to the likes of Bubble Bobble and The New Zealand Story, where the player controls the witch Ptolemy who must turn evil wizards, witches, and other enemies into cakes before pushing them off of the platform ledge. Get hit by an enemy and you are banished into bubble form!
The classic side-scrolling shoot ’em up from Konami was the final announcement of the weekend, originally releasing in 1989, and an early title (complete with slow-down!) on the Super Famicom.

Guzzler was originally developed by Tehkan (Tecmo) in 1983 as a PacMan-style maze game where where players shoots liquid to kill monsters, eat food to replace the liquid, and put out the four fires where the monsters spawn in order to progress to the next maze. The game was also ported to Sega’s SG-1000 console.
Kuri Kinton is another Taito title and is a side-scrolling beat ’em up from 1988 that is heavily inspired by both Dragon Ball and Hokuto no Ken.
