Ironsword Wizards and Warriors II – Intro & Titles (Enhanced)

Ironsword Wizards and Warriors II - Banner

Because my Retron 5 is currently in RMA (broken pins in the NES slot) and because my capture of this specific game on the Retron produce some strange coloring on the title screen I have opted to go with full-on emulation for this intro. This is run through Nestopia the UE branch with the xbr filter at 4x quality. It produces a higher quality image than the Retron, but is much more CPU intensive. In the future I may livestream with the Retron, but do full walkthroughs via Emulation for the quality of picture… just a thought.

Ironsword is the sequel to Wizards and Warriors for the NES, choosing to have the subtitle feature above the main game name.
