Jaleco's Arcade Classic Rod Land heading to the iPhone in September

Jalecos-Arcade-Rod-Land-heading-to-the-iPhone-in-SeptemberIf getting hold of the incredibly rare Nintendo NES version of Rod Land is proving too difficult, DotEmu will have you covered shortly. The retro game revivers for modern systems are set to return in September with an iOS port of Jaleco's 1990 arcade classic also known as Yousei Monogatari Rod Land.

Rod Land is often the talking point amongst Nintendo NES collectors worldwide due its limited release. Given the rarity of the European versions are already sky high, it doesn't help the fact that American gamers completely missed out on this release. As always, just like Mr Gimmick, any Nintendo NES game not released in the US is often one fetching high prices due the high demand worldwide.

As the Nintendo NES version of Rod Land fetches around £150 upwards for a bare-bones cartridge, DotEmu's new arrival set to hit the Apple App Store on the 6th September should please gamers with its low $1.99 price tag. The version set to hit the Apple devices is an emulation of the original arcade port.
