Konami Games

One of the most successful Nintendo third-party suppliers around, Konami has increased their profile in home gaming by entering the computer software markets in a big way and re-entering the NES field with a new subsidiary, Ultra Games. Now, with 1989 upon us, the folks at Konami/Ultra are in an even better position to fulfill our gaming fantasies.

Defender of the Crown - Adapted from the acclaimed Cinemaware computer game, DOTC introduces you to unequaled medieval thrills and challenges. DOTC mixes strategy with smaller portions of action during a hot and heavy English civil war. Metal Gear - A game that has already proven to be a hit on the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Skate or Die - Based on the popular computer game, Skate or Die brings you face to face with some of the meanest maniacs video has ever seen! Multiple events like "Skate and Destroy" set the tone for some terrific action. Coming in January for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Q'Bert - Konami's Ultra subsidiary will also bring an all-time favorite, QBert back to video game stardom in early '89. Bounce the two-legged nose from block to block on his pyramid world, changing the code colors on the top of each cube to the right target hue. But watch out! Ugg, Wrong-way, Slick, Sam, and the slimy purple serpant, Coily are out to do you in! For one or two players, QBert will be hopping into stores everywhere in February.

Gyruss - Save the universe from the evil Gyrusians in yet another arcade translation from Ultra. Save the people of the solar system in this high-speed chase through the stars. Silent Service - In a licensing agreement with MicroProse Software, Konami has acquired the rights to this number one computer game chart-top-per. A sea battle game with unparalleled strategy and skill, Silent Service is Konami's first gamble at a true underwater simulation.

Track and Field 2 - This sequel to last year's sports sensation, Track and Field II increases the number of events and throws in one or two play simultaneous competition. New, larger graphic characters, and 15 new events make Track and Field II a safe bet no matter what sport you like!

Bayou Billy - Another Prince saves the Princess game, only with a very odd twist. This time the Prince in none other than Bayou Billy, a fightin' mad cajun and alligator wrestling king, and the Princess is his only love, Annabelle, who's been kidnapped by the Gangster King and his mob. Multiple play mechanics elevate this action title above similar fare.

Dot has her irresistible charm. Yakko, Wakko and Dot always travel together. Think of them as the "New Brat Pack." They're out of the water tower and out of their minds!
