On this day (November 16) in Nintendo history…
Faxanadu was released in 1987 for the Family Computer in Japan. In this action role-playing game, developed by Hudson Soft with Nihom Falcom, you are an adventurer who has just returned to his home town, the Elf town of Eolis, at the base of the World Tree. You find the village in peril – the Elven water supply has dried up, monsters are causing chaos and the tree itself, once proud, is slowly wilting.
The Pokémon mini was released in 2001 in Japan. A handheld video game console that was designed and manufactured by Nintendo and themed around the Pokémon media franchise. It is the smallest game system with interchangeable cartridges ever produced by Nintendo, weighing just under 71 grams. The systems were released in three colours: Wooper Blue, Chikorita Green, and Smoochum Purple. Features of the Pokémon mini include an internal real-time clock, an infrared port used to facilitate multiplayer gaming, a reed switch for detecting shakes, and a motor used to implement force feedback. Pokémon Channel features playable emulated demo versions of Pokémon mini games, including the console exclusive Snorlax's Lunch Time. Various hackers have reverse engineered the Pokémon mini (with the aid of the aforementioned emulator in Pokémon Channel) in order to enable the creation of homebrew games, and to allow official games to be played on other platforms (such as a PC, Dreamcast and various others).
Pokémon Party mini was released in 2001 for the Pokémon mini in Japan. In this minigame compilation, developed by Denyusha, the sun is out, the drinks are chilled and the trophies are twinkling on the winner's podium. The Pokémon are having a Sports Day party and you're invited. Are you up to the challenge? Featuring seven stunning games packed into a Game Pak the size of a postage stamp, Pokémon Party mini will give you a big buzz – literally. Best of all, the Pokémon have given you an open invitation.
Pokémon Pinball mini was released in 2001 for the Pokémon mini in Japan. In this pinball game, developed by Jupiter, the timeless thrills of pinball combine with the irresistible world of Pokémon – a superb miniature title that will hook you from the very first play. Diglett, the cherry-nosed ground-based Pokémon, has agreed to lend his services as the game's sole "flipper". A Pokéball acts as the pinball, and using the A button you can use Diglett's head to nudge the ball towards bumpers, holes, and other targets. It's tougher than it looks.Загрузка...
Pokémon Puzzle Collection was released in 2001 for the Pokémon mini in Japan. In this puzzle game, developed by Jupiter, this little piece of plastic contains a colossal 80 stages of Pokémon action – and there's a prize Pokémon rewarded for each brainteaser you complete! Plus, you can keep track of your creature-collecting progress at any time by accessing the built-in Minidex. The 80 puzzles are divided into four brain-busting types, with 20 games apiece, and in steadily increasing difficulty.
Pokémon Zany Cards was released in 2001 for the Pokémon mini in Japan. In this strategy game, developed by Denyusha, a leisurely-paced game, ideal for the more relaxed player – although you may not stay calm if that dastardly Meowth beats your hand of cards time and time again! Four classic card games are brought to virual life, with brilliantly-animated Pokémon characters acting as opponents and helpers. In Wild Match, trump your opponents by making combinations from the cards dealt to you and those on the table.
Master of Illusion (known in Europe as Magic Made Fun: Perform Tricks That Will Amaze Your Friends) was released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS in Japan. In this non-game, developed by Tenyo with 8ing, you will have the power to perform mind-boggling magic tricks in no time! The fun starts when you walk through the door of Great Barbara's magic shop – your first stop on a journey of discovery that will teach you how to use your DS as an assistant for your own private magic shows.
