On this day (August 27) in Nintendo history…

  • Gomoku Narabe Renju was released in 1983 for the Family Computer in Japan. In this tabletop game, developed by Nintendo, three pieces are placed on the board (two black and one white). The goal is to arrange a line of five pieces in your colour, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Block your opponent from making a line without becoming distracted from your own. The game ends as soon as one player is guaranteed to win. There are three difficulty levels.

  • Mahjong was released in 1983 for the Family Computer in Japan. In this Mahjong game, developed by Nintendo, there are several families of tiles plus special tiles (the winds, the dragons, etc.). Drop the tiles you don't need and take tiles you do from other players to form a winning hand, or "yaku". At the end of eight hands the winner is decided by who has accumulated the most points.

  • Super Mario Kart was released in 1992 for the Super Famicom in Japan. In this kart racing game, developed by Nintendo EAD, start your engines. Choose from eight Mushroom Kingdom characters, from familiar faces like Mario and Bowser, to Donkey Kong Jr. in his only karting appearance. Burn rubber across classic courses like Mario Circuit, Bowser Castle, Koopa Beach and the infamous Rainbow Road! Race solo, go head-to-head with a friend, and experience the two-player favourite: Battle Mode!

  • Mario & Wario was released in 1993 for the Super Famicom in Japan. In this puzzle game, developed by Game Freak, Wario has dropped buckets on the heads of Mario, Peach and Yoshi. Blinded, they stumble around. You play as a fairy named Wanda, controlled using the SNES Mouse, to guide the blinded heroes to Luigi. Wanda can use her magic wand to make blocks appear and to make Mario and friends change direction. As you progress through the stages, different kinds of blocks appear, such as Timer Blocks that vanish after a short while.

  • EarthBound was released in 1994 for the Super Famicom in Japan. In this role-playing game, developed by Ape with HAL Laboratory, when a meteorite hits the Earth near to Ness' house, the brave young man sets off to investigate, but little does he know that he's about to begin an epic adventure that will change his life… oh, and he might just save the universe in the process! Ness will have to travel across the world after meeting with a strange alien to prevent Giygas, the Universal Cosmic Destroyer, from annihilating everything and everyone.
