Okay, Dig Dug is not actually the characters name its actually Hori Taizo. Then again, you find me someone in the 80’s that knew that and I’ll show you someone that got his ass kicked on a regular basis… probably by the greasers and socs.
Not sure if you knew this, but Mr. Driller was originally going to be Dig Dug III. The main character in that is Hori Susumu which is actually the son of Dig Dug… I mean Hori Taizo.
Lastly, Dig Dug Arrangement arrangement on Namco Museum Battle Collection for the PSP is great… not as great as Galaga Arrangement (which is also included in that collection), but then again that’s friggin’ Galaga.
