Ganbare Goemon: Tōkai Dōchū Ōedo Tengu ri Kaeshi no Maki is a Goemon game released for the Nintendo DS on June 23, 2005. Its release marked the revival of the series' medieval Japanese themes and quirky humor, as previous games had taken place in a futuristic setting or with a more serious tone.


Tōkai Dōchū Ōedo Tengu ri Kaeshi no Maki is an action game with RPG elements, similar to Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon. Players control Goemon and Ebisimaru, and later gain Yae and Sasuke. As with Mystical Ninja, each character has their own special abilities that allow them to progress through special areas. For example, Goemon earns power gloves that let him push large blocks, while Ebisimaru gets a ballerina dress that allows him to drill underground.


Disaster strikes when Goemon and Ebisumaru are sent to jail for crimes they didn't commit! After being freed from jail by their companion Yae, they soon discover that poor-looking phonies are causing mischief under their names! You'll have to put a stop to these impostors to clear your name and save Edo from disaster.
