Farewell, FamiKamen Rider Teaser Trailer January 11, 2015Posted by Maniac in Game News.
A year ago, the world lost a great cultural guide, reviewer, and friend when Justin Carmichel, known to the Internet as JewWario, died.
Justin was the host of the webseries “You Can Play This”, a review series which mainly focused on great games that are only available overseas. He also helped English speaking gamers by providing information on how these games were played, or how you can play the games on your own systems.
One of my favorite videos that Justin produced was his fourth anniversary video, where he was bequeathed the power of the FamiKamen Rider by the creator of Super Mario, complete with an epic transformation effect. The Rider was a Nintendo-ized superhero heavily inspired by the hugely popular Kamen Rider franchise. Justin planned to create a FamiKamen Rider series, but that series never saw a release.
Now, one of his friends, Kaylyn Saucedo, better known to the Internet as Marzgurl, is planning to bring the FamiKamen Rider back. The project is called Farewell, FamiKamen Rider.
After a massive fight in Canada, the FamiKamen Rider has gone missing in action, leaving his transformation belt behind and his cartridge vanished. In the aftermath of the battle, a new enemy appears, seeking out the power of the FamiKamen Rider for himself.
For three years, MarzGurl has kept the transformation belt safe from enemy hands. Her search for the missing cartridge proves futile, until Chris, a rare video game collector, stumbles upon the cartridge by chance. Not knowing what he has found, Chris’s curiosity makes him a target for this new evil. As he learns about the history of the FamiKamen Rider, with the additional support of an old friend and a new hero, it is up to MarzGurl and Chris to make the journey to find answers, confront their own fears, and stop this new threat before it is too late.
You can keep up with all the latest information about the project here.
The first trailer was released a few days ago. Here it is, I think it does a great job setting the stage for what has happened to the world without the Rider.
Here is the second trailer.
The full video will be shown at Magfest on January 23rd. Hopefully it will see a release online shortly afterwards because I can’t wait to see this. JewWario would be proud.
