Momotaro Dentetsu Showa Heisei Reiwa mo Teiban!
Nintendo Switch Ι Genre: Train Board Game
One day the wife of a poor woodcutter went to the river hard to wash some clothes. As she was preparing to return home she perceived a large object coming along the water, and on reaching it with a stick found that it was a peach larger than she had ever seen or heard of before.
She took it home, washed it, and handed it to her husband to open. As the man cut it a boy emerged from the kernel; whom they adopted as a present from the Gods to comfort them in their old age. They called him Momotaro, the Elder son of the Peach, and he grew big and strong, excelling in feats of strength beyond most boys of his age.
Once he decided to leave the elders and to go to Onigashima, the Island of the Devils, to seek his fortune.
The old people gave him some dumplings to take with him and sped him on his road. He soon met a dog who asked for a dumpling and promised to accompany him; then a monkey and a pheasant came with similar requests, and with these three followers he reached the gate of the Devil’s fortress.
They got in and had a stiff fight with the demons; the animals taking part in the fray. Finally, they reached the inner fastness of the place, in which the chief devil, Akadoji, was waiting for them with an iron war club.
He was, however, thrown down by Momotaro, who bound him with ropes and made him disclose the secret of his treasures. Then Peachling helped himself liberally and, followed by his three companions, returned to the home of the woodcutter, becoming thereafter a rich and honored member of the community.
From peach to the world!
The story of Momotaro is without any doubt the most renowned Japanese fairy tale; appeared in thousands of books, anime, manga, TV series, and video games, the Peach Boy is not only a folkloristic adventurous hero, but he’s also a symbol of the inner soul of the whole country.
In fact, if we analyze the story deeper, you easily discover that Momotaro is a part of the so-called “small child” genre (小さ子); on par with Issun Boshi, Urikohime, and Kaguyahime, despite his size, he can accomplish very difficult tasks that normal humans cannot achieve… a perfect metaphor of the Land of the Rising Sun.
The cultural heritage of Momotaro is particularly vivid in the gaming industry, every one of us could meet him in dozens of titles; Okami, Doraemon 2: SOS! Otogi no Kuni, and above all the Momotaro Dentetsu series are the best titles in which we can see this beloved hero.
