. The game mechanics are often compared to the board games sugoroku and Monopoly.

Started in 1988, the series is produced by Hudson Soft. The title is commonly thought of as a play on the title for another video game series by Hudson Soft, "Momotaro Densetsu", with which it is sometimes confused. The project supervisor for the series is Akira Sakuma, with illustration by nihongo|Takayuki Doi|土居 孝幸 and main music production by Kazuyuki Sekiguchi of Southern All Stars.

The series is very popular in Japan, with 10 million units sold in the series by 1998. [ 桃太郎伝説 ] ]

Since 2004, promotional marketing for the series has featured the pairing of comedian nihongo|Tomonori Jinnai|陣内智則 and gravure idol/tarento nihongo|Chinatsu Wakatsuki|若槻千夏.]
