Since the teaser's to do with ShootersFes, I guess we'll be waiting a bit longer to see if they'll be re-releasing Toaplan's non-shooters, like Snow Bros.!

Anyway, good to see them continuing to truck on with these re-releases - lots of companies could learn a thing or two from how these guys're doing it.
