What’s Next! – January 1991

The post-Christmas lull.

Presented here is the game release schedule for the month of January 1991. As I review these games, I will include the links to the reviews within the schedule. All release dates are from Japan, unless otherwise noted. I started doing these schedule posts beginning with October of 1990, and readers seemed to enjoy them, but that was nearly two years ago. If you like this idea of a month-by-month calendar, let me know in the comments below.

If a game is released for two systems – like Gain Ground or Dick Tracy – I will review both versions at the same time. I review games with day/month/year release dates first (ex: Ultimate Qix – 01/25/91), followed by games where only the month/year date are known (Danan: The Jungle Fighter – 01/91). When multiple systems feature games that have only month/year dates, I will review them based on the order of the system release. So Master System games with only month/year dates get reviewed first, then Genesis games, then Game Gear games and so on.

I hope that makes sense. Maybe it’s a weird system to some, but it works for me.

Gain Ground – 01/02/91 (JP – Genesis), 01/91 (EU – Master System)

The calendar thingy is really good I’d say, and I like that you intend to do multiple versions of these games at once. That just means fewer games to cover in the future. 🙂 Looking forward to Danan – that’s the one I used to play the most out of the ones listed here. I remember it being quite decent, if easy.

Yeah, multiple versions at once just makes sense, unless the versions are just completely different (a la Castle of Illusion). Haven’t heard much about Danan, but not surprised since it was only released in Europe.
