  • Momotaro Dentetsu (桃太郎電鉄, Momotarō Dentetsu, Momotarō Electric Railway) (also known by the abbreviated name Momotetsu) is a long-running board game-style video game series in Japan; in which players travel by rail, ship, and airplane; attempting to acquire wealth through business transactions buying properties; and dealing with rival entrepreneurs and nemeses such as the God of Poverty (貧乏神, Binbōgami). The game mechanics are often compared to the board games sugoroku and Monopoly. Started in 1988, the series was initially produced by Hudson Soft. The rights to the series are now owned by Konami Corporation, who absorbed Hudson in 2012. The title is commonly thought of as a play on the title for another video game series by Hudson Soft, Momotaro Densetsu, with which it is sometimes confused. The project supervisor for the series is Akira Sakuma, with illustration by Takayuki Doi (土居 孝幸) and main music production by Kazuyuki Sekiguchi of Southern All Stars. The series is popular in Japan. Total shipments exceeded 12 million units by 2011. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the series, Hudson collaborated with the financially troubled Chōshi Electric Railway Line, operating a train on the railway decorated with a Momotaro Dentetsu motif. Opening on April 25, 2007, the train ran until its third anniversary. In June 2009, two Momotetsu-themed restaurants opened at Japanese railway stations: one at Haijima Station, and another at Kami-Nagaya Station (上永谷駅). From 2004, for many years promotional marketing for the series featured the pairing of comedian Tomonori Jinnai and gravure idol/tarento Chinatsu Wakatsuki. In June 2015, creator Akira Sakuma stated “I’m announcing here that Momotaro Dentetsu is officially done. Ishikawa at Konami squelched everything.” However, in July 2015, Konami lends the license to Nintendo for an unspecified amount of yen. After 7 years of no release, a new version of the game was released, exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS. Momotaro Dentetsu II is set to be released in the US on the TurboGrafx-16 Mini.
