Bandit Gaming- Lion King 2 for Sega Genesis

Lion King was a popular movie and it was a popular video game license. Officially, there was no sequel released on the Sega Genesis but that has not stopped an unknown Chinese developer from creating a pseudo sequel.

Unreleased Game- Pinkie ROM for Super Nintendo Found and Released

Nearly 20 years ago an action platforming game called Pinkie was released for the Commodore Amiga computer. Pinkie was quickly forgotten due to there being a glutony of similar titles released during this time. Unbeknownst to gamers of the time, Data Design Systems created a Super Nintendo port of Pinkie. Unseen 64 has found and […]

The Legendary Axe Shows the Turbo Grafx-16 Could Rock – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

When NEC launched the Turbo Grafx-16 in North America they faced many challenges. For one they were slightly off as far as what gamers on this side of the pond wanted (Sega was closer and therefore outsold the NEC machine regularly). The Legendary Axe was quite the showcase title for the Turbo Grafx-16 and definitely […]

Kick in the Teeth of Bad Guys in Vigilante on Turbo Grafx-16 – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

The Turbo Grafx-16 launched with two arcade titles, Vigilante and R-Type. The Sega Genesis on the other hand launched with several arcade ports (all but two, I believe). Vigilante is believed by many a gamer to be the spiritual successor to Kung-Fu Master (remember China Warrior?). Before you read the storyline behind this one, just […]

Role Playing Game Fans Fought Satan in Dungeon Explorer on the Turbo Grafx-16 – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

NEC were new to North American gaming, that was evidenced no better than in the story for Dungeon Explorer- a launch title. Players that bought this game based on title alone were not too far off from what they would get in the game, there are dungeons to explore. NEC really covered the bases with […]

Keith Courage in Alpha Zones Pits Players Against the Beastly Alien Dudes – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

This was NEC’s answer to Altered Beast, Keith Courage in Alpha Zones. There is no arcade tie-in here (though the Turbo Grafx-16 did launch with R-Type). NEC was at a disadvantage as far as arcade ports went but that didn’t stop them from trying different things such as a pinball game at launch. Keith Courage […]

China Warrior Shows Off Immense Sprites on Turbo Grafx-16 But Not Much Else – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

The debut of the Turbo Grafx-16 was a tough launch for NEC. This was probably due to a couple of reasons, one, this was their first console and not ever launch title is going to be a hit with fans. Secondly, their lack of understanding what North American gamers wanted hurt throughout the consoles’ life. […]

Alien Crush Unleashes Extra Terrestrials into Pinball – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

The launch of the Turbo Grafx-16 was the first, and only, foray into the North American gaming market for NEC (for more information on this see our historical look back here). NEC were pulling out all of the stops, at least as many as they could with their libary of launch titles. To say NEC […]

NEC Makes Their Console Debut with the Turbo Grafx-16 – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

NEC took a lot of chances with the launch of their Turbo Grafx-16 in North America, for one, it was their first (and only) console outside of Japan. The PC-Engine, as the Turbo Grafx-16 is known in Japan, was co-developed with Hudson (more like NEC slapped their name on Hudson’s designs). This was the first […]
