On this day (November 17) in Nintendo history…
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron was released in 1998 for the Nintendo 64 in North America. In this action/shooter game, developed by Factor 5 with LucasArts, after the first Death Star was blown to pieces at the battle of Yavin, young Luke Skywalker formed Rogue Squadron from the remaining energetic group of dedicated Rebel pilots. Along with Wedge Antilles, Luke logged 16 missions against the Empire before the Imperial invasion of Hoth ended that portion of his career.
Donkey Kong Country was released in 2000 for the Game Boy Color in PAL territories. In this platformer game, developed by Rare, it's a jungle in there… Now, thanks to Game Boy Color and Rare's expertise, the original creators of Donkey Kong Country have crammed the entire Super NES version into a Game Boy Color cartridge without scaling down any of the classic levels or changing the play.
Metroid Prime was released in 2002 for the Nintendo GameCube in North America. In this action-adventure game, developed by Retro Studios, the Space Pirates may be up to their old tricks but Metroid-hunter Samus Aran has a new look on life. For the first time, you'll see through Samus' eyes as she embarks on a whole new adventure – continuing the gripping story that has spanned three generations of Nintendo systems. This eagerly-awaited fourth chapter begins in true Metroid style – as Samus' ship docks at a derelict spaceship.Загрузка...
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga was released in 2003 for the Game Boy Advance in North America. In this role-playing game, developed by AlphaDream, the Mario Bros. team up in this hilarious action-packed game. When an evil witch steals Princess Peach's voice, Mario and Luigi must venture beyond the Mushroom Kingdom to a mysterious new world packed with surprises! Take control of both brothers as you explore the vast lands of the Beanbean Kingdom, encountering wacky characters and bizarre new enemies.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team was released in 2005 for the Game Boy Advance in Japan. In this roguelike game, developed by Chunsoft, you've caught them, you've trained them and you've battled them – but now you can find out what it's actually like to be a Pokémon! You wake up in a world inhabited entirely by Pokémon, as a Pokémon yourself, with no knowledge of how you got there or how you can return to human form. But perhaps there's a reason for your arrival.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Mystery Team was released in 2005 for the Nintendo DS in Japan. IN this roguelike game, developed by Chunsoft, now that you understand the Pokémon language, you learn that a series of natural disasters is threatening the community. You soon befriend another Pokémon and form a Rescue Team to help Pokémon in distress. You receive missions to rescue Pokémon trapped in dangerous dungeons, which are always randomly generated (mean that you'll never play the same dungeon twice).
