NCS Preorder Synopsis
If you drop a mustache on Spelunker and remove the hardhat, you'll basically end up with Nintendo's Mario. Spelunker wears the same blue overalls, an identical red shirt, and the same brown shoes. Was it intentional hero design pilferage when the Spelunker game got localized for the Famicom in Japan? We think so. Actually, NCS knows so.

   In any case, Spelunker got resurrected earlier this year in a
Sofubi toy which sold moderately well. Later this summer, another toy is being offered which bears the Spelunker imprint. Sound bottle caps that play BGM and sound effects from the game so they're basically trinkets that serve no utility other than being somewhat collectible with a bit of retro appeal. We'll buy a few cases for the NCS museum but we'll likely leave it at that. The preorder offer mentions that six standard bottlecaps are included in the set along with 1 secret figure. The bottlecaps are as follows:

1) Spelunker figure + bottlecap that plays the "Main BGM" 
2) Spelunker figure + bottlecap that plays the "Score x2" sound effect 
3) Pink Spelunker + bottlecap that plays the "Stage Clear" jingle 
4) White Spelunker + bottlecap that plays the "Speedup" sound effect
5) Ghost + bottlecap that plays the spooky "Ghost" melody
6) Black Bat + bottlecap that plays the "Miss" sound effect
