May 1989 Computer Entertainer
The May 1989 issue of Computer Entertainer is now shipping to subscribers. The Game Boy has been officially confirmed for a U.S. launch. Nintendo’s new portable system will come packed in with Tetris, the hit puzzle game that’s addicting players across the world. Other launch games include: Super Mario Land, Alleyway, Baseball, and Tennis. Pricing will be announced at the summer CES next month. Soon you won’t have to be tethered to your television set to play Nintendo games!
Computer Entertainer went hands-on with Sega’s new Mega Drive 16-bit system. It released in Japan late last year and is supposedly heading stateside this fall with a new name. Could this pose a threat to Nintendo’s dominance in the video game industry?
Capcom is bringing us more Disney games, including DuckTales and Rescue Rangers (Chip & Dale)! The latter is supposed to feature two player simultaneous play, which could be a great kids game.
Next up are some NES reviews, including: Legacy of the Wizard, Taboo: The Sixth Sense, Ninja Gaiden, and Golf Challenge Pebble Beach. Plus, FCI has announced ore NES games and the PC Engine will be called the TurboGrafx-16 in the U.S. when it arrives later this fall! The video game landscape is about to change!
