Nintendo Entertainment System
Genre: Action Platformer
Every incredible developer has their humble beginnings. Nintendo had Mario Bros. and the Legend of Zelda. Sega had Sonic the Hedgehog and Alex Kidd. Even lesser known companies than those like Konami and Capcom have their beginnings. Then, there are niche developers that have interesting beginnings that one wouldn’t expect. Take Atlus, for example, who is well-known by many gamers as the purveyors of games like Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, and various other interesting titles. One of their four games for the NES, Rockin’ Kats, is much more mainstream than their position now would have one assume. No demons or crucifixions here. Just good clean fun.
