Exciting Hour was one of my favourite arcade games in the 80's. 

There's 5 fights and at the end of the fifth you win the championship belt, then the game just starts over.

I thought it had cool opponents, like Pirhana, who munches on you when he grapples you ;D

There a lot of cool actions to do, you can lift the opponent over your head to slam him, piledriver, you can also climb the posts, and you can throw someone outside the ring and continue the fight outside :)

An odd selection of games with questionable quality.

I wonder if there are any Japanese consumers who are perturbed over the fact that ass-old games are being re-released with considerable price tags. :/

Hopefully arcade games can make it to the American PS4, just at a cheaper price..

Are the prices really that bad, 800 yen for one arcade game, what is that in US money?

Except, EA uses their top rated, top selling, and most popular franchises.

You can just use one of those online money exchange calculators to answer that question yourself.

The crux here is that really old games are being recycled and sold to exploit curiosity and nostalgia.

@Gelugon_baat Personally I'd like to buy some of them. I didn't play them in my youth, so that's not nostalgia or exploitation. Sometimes people just want to buy old things, just like they buy old music or movies.
