Gimmick was known for its innovative soundtrack. I'm unsure if it has been ever rereleased other than a 2002 PlayStation version, and now the game can be very expensive. It was first released in Japan, and later in Scandinavia as Mr. Gimmick and there was a version called Suikan Pipe, but apparently may be a bootleg. This makes me wonder for the reasons why Gimmick hasn't been rereleased on Nintendo's eShops yet. Another Sunsoft game is Trip World for Game Boy, which has been re-released on 3DS Virtual Console.

Please be gentle with me if I go off on a tangent and am not understanding something. Capricious.
It always seemed so random that the only place outside Japan that Gimmick was released was Scandinavia. I wonder what the story behind that is.
Can't say I've ever been into Sunsoft's games except for a light interest in the Blaster Master series, and even then, Inti Creates is probably doing a better job with it.
I wonder if the art style was reminiscent of Moomins (Finnish lifestyle brand?)? Sunsoft had a Moomins game for GBC. Also, we're in luck? www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cYIlPcbwW4 (Video is apparently from (Exa-Arcadia; JAEPO 2019)) Perhaps this could get a console release that's available to a wider audience.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
