With games like Gunstar Heroes and Ikaruga heralded as genre-defining, bar-setting contributions.Rakugaki Showtime is one of Treasure’s more obscure titles as a Japan-only PS1 exclusive that’s also relatively modest in scope, but that doesn’t mean it’s not loaded with Treasure dynamite!

Treasure’s signature ingenuity and design prowess are in full affect in this multiplayer arena brawler, with a clever control scheme, satisfying tactile feedback, and an efficient aesthetic that is simultaneously low-tech and high-impact. You can grab this one for a few hundred yen if you’ve got a Japanese PSN account.
