On this day (July 26) in Nintendo history…

  • VS. Pinball was released in 1984 for the arcade in Japan. This pinball game, developed by Nintendo, combines all of the elements normally seen in standard pinball machines, but with several twists. Players are able to play a total of three various screens, including a bonus stage that features Mario and Pauline of the famed Mario Bros. series. Players control a set of dual flippers. At the start of VS. Pinball, the ball can be launched at various speeds and velocities, depending on how long the player holds down the action key.

  • VS. Stroke and Match Golf was released in 1984 for the arcade in Japan. This sports game, developed by Nintendo, is an 18 hole golf game where the player chooses stroke play or match play against a human or computer player. It is set to allow a certain number of swings per credit. The player gains or loses swings depending on the outcome of each hole.

  • VS. Ladies Golf was released in 1984 for the arcade in Japan. This sports game, developed by Nintendo, is a golfing game.

  • VS. Wrecking Crew was released in 1984 for the arcade in Japan. In this platformer game, developed by Nintendo, unlike Wrecking Crew, the screen does not scroll vertically, and the gameplay takes place on a single wraparound screen split into five floors. Besides this and Luigi acting as Foreman Spike in all levels, the single player is mostly the same. However, the game was designed specifically for the VS. DualSystem, and thus featured innovative mechanics only possible with multiple screens.

  • Stack-Up was released in 1985 for the Family Computer in Japan. In this puzzle game, developed by Nintendo, as Professor Hector, jump on the command keys to make R.O.B. stack the coloured discs and match the pattern shown on the screen. However, the mean Bugs will try and confuse R.O.B. by sending him incorrect commands.

Dr. Wily is at it again! Fresh from his defeat at the hands of Mega Man, the mad scientist Dr. Wily has revived his Robot Masters and even constructed a new "Mega Man Killer" named Enker, all to further his quest for global domination.

  • Time Twist: Rekishi no Katasumi de… (Disk 1) was released in 1991 for the Family Computer Disk System in Japan. In this adventure game, developed by Nintendo with Pax Softnica, fortune telling has become a huge fad in Japan. A young boy is watching a fortune telling show on TV which suggests you should visit the Demon Museum and recite an incantation to make the girl of your dreams fall in love with you. He heads there immediately and sure enough the girl of his dreams is there.

  • Time Twist: Rekishi no Katasumi de… (Disk 2) was released in 1991 for the Family Computer Disk System in Japan. In this adventure game, developed by Nintendo with Pax Softnica, he recites the incantation, but it frees a demon from its prison. The evil creature swaps bodies with the boy and escapes through time, leaving the boy in a dying demon body. As the boy, you have to chase the demon through time using a time travel belt, swapping into different bodies.
