On this day (April 27) in the history of Nintendo…
- Club Famikom Tantay: Kieta Kōkeisha (disc 1) was released in 1988 for the Family Computer Disk System in Japan. In this adventure game developed by Nintendo, you are found unconscious at the bottom of a cliff by a man named Amachi who doesn’t remember who you are or how you got there. After you recover, you meet a girl named Ayumi who explains that you are an assistant to the Utsugi detective agency investigating the suspicious death of Kiku Ayashiro, the head of the Ayashiro Corporation and owner of a huge estate.
- Kirby’s Dream Land was released on the Game Boy in Japan in 1992. In this action/platform game developed by HAL Labs, someone has robbed the residents of Dreamland. It’s Kirby who comes to the rescue. The land of dreams is in danger. The evil king has stolen the magical twinkling stars. If they do not recover, the people of Dreamland will starve. Join Kirby, our adorable rolling hero, as he runs, jumps and swims in search of the coveted Sparkle Stars. He makes his way through castles, caves, dungeons and forests.
- Game Boy Gallery was released for the Game Boy in PAL territory in 1995. Developed by Nintendo R&D1 in collaboration with Tose, this compilation of video/mini games features five updated versions of classic Game & Watch games. For each game, you can choose between Game A or the more difficult Game B, switching between the new Game Boy tunes and the original Game & Watch sound effects. Available games: Balloon, Vermin, Banner, Hatch and Cement Mario.
- Star Fox 64 (known as Lylat Wars in PAL territories) was released for the Nintendo 64 in Japan in 1997. In this scrolling rail shooter developed by Nintendo EAD, Andross launches a major attack on the Lylat system. Only Fox McCloud and the Star Fox team stand in his way. Jump in your Arwing fighter, Landmaster tank or Blue Marine submarine and destroy the Andross troops! Fight on 15 different levels in air, space, land and sea battles.
- The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was released in Japan in 2000 for the Nintendo 64. If Ocarina of Time is an epic in this adventure game developed by Nintendo EAD, then Majora’s Mask can only be described as epic. This time Link, the Hirulian hero, fights against time to solve the disturbing mystery of the Major’s mask. This stunning sequel to Ocarina of Time is packed with artistic flair and has a premise that breaks through the foundation on which most games are built.
- Tabi no Yubisashi Kaivachou DS: The American DS 4 series was released in Japan in 2006 for the Nintendo DS. This reference software, developed by Tose, is a collection of American phrases for travelers to Japan. The programme coincides with the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. In addition to the basic phrase list, which is divided into categories, there is also a text input tool that allows you to get translations for specific words. The Freeform tool lets you draw pictures of whatever you want to ask, or you can use it to draw maps.
