Released on May 25’th, 1987- Section-Z
On this day on May 25’th of 1987, Section-Z was released for the Famicom Disk System in Japan.
The arcade version featured 26 levels each named after the corresponding letter in the Alphabet or A-Z. With the titular ending being “Section-Z”. The Famicom Disk System version changed up this formula to give players 60 full fledged levels, each of them numbered. Additionally, the Famicom version featured transporter pods to transfer the player to another level. Additionally, the Famicom version differed from the US because it included a three-slot save system. By contrast, the US version required you to complete the game in one sitting.
Overall, Section-Z is a pretty good game for fans of shoot’em’up’s. Did you give it a shot today?
