In 1987, Konami released Ai Senshi Nicol (愛戦士ニコル) on the Famicom Disk System about a man named Nicol who would do anything to save his love from her alien captors. This Japanese-only released game hits all the dots that make gaming fun and we feel compelled to share the love we have for it with you. Ai Senshi Nicol never came to the West and it never saw a sequel or spin-off, leaving this hidden gem tucked away and waiting to be dusted off. So sit back, pop on some headphones and listen to a story about a man named Nicol. Summary and tracklist can be found here.
Ai Senshi Nicol wasn’t a flagship franchise for Konami or a household name (at least in the States). Many gamers don’t even know it even exists and we aim to change that -or at least do our best! Nicol will battle for love and we will battle for the recognition this game deserves.
