The biggest Game Boy release of 1989, in scope if not in popularity. The Final Fantasy Legend didn't just kick off the long-running SaGa series, it paved the way for countless handheld RPGs with its unpredictable but generally forgiving play and compact yet expansive world. A fascinatingly ambitious release for this early on the Game Boy's life.

We reach an important milestone with Pachinko Time: It's the first post-launch Game Boy title to be a Japan-exclusive release — the first since Yakuman, back in April 1989. Soon, the floodgates shall open, and Game Boy World will be inundated with games never released in the U.S. (and, as we'll see, often for good reason). The Japanocalypse is nigh.
