Interviews and stuff

Magazines' notes refs


Multi-game is an arcade machine with multiple Sega's versions of 16-bit games. It was created and released by JBN Electronics (João Barassal Neto), Sega's official arcades' distributor in Brazil in the 1990s[1]. Multi-game featured a 14" screen, a total of 21 games and the price was around 3,000 USD[2].

  • João Manoel Quadros Barros said in a interview ("Jogos 80" magazine issue 14) that Tectoy developed a fully working Saturn browser (name not mentioned, no images or anything unfortunately), which ended up not released.
    • He also said that they made a "Tectoy's Duke Nukem" (just for fun/only for themselves of course), on which the map was the company itself and the enemies were the workers (this is mostly for a trivia/curiosities section or something, maybe?).

Prices of BR releases

Brazil had four different currencies between 1989 and nowadays, making it difficult to add the price of anything released prior 1994-07. No idea if the information below may be useful at all, but let's go on:

  • From 1989-01-16 to 1990-03-15 — Name: Cruzado Novo / Symbol: NCz$
  • From 1990-03-16 to 1993-07-30 — Name: Cruzeiro / Symbol: Cr$ / Value: remained the same
  • From 1993-08-01 to 1994-06-30 — Name: Cruzeiro Real / Symbol: CR$ / Value: 3 less zeroes (Example: Cr$ 500,000.00 = CR$ 500.00)
  • From 1994-07-01 on — Name: Real / Symbol: R$ / Value: at the time it changed CR$ 2,700.00 = R$ 1.00

The Master System was released in 1989-09 (NCz$), the Mega Drive in 1990-11 (Cr$), Game Gear 1991-09 (Cr$), Saturn in 1995-05 (R$) and Dreamcast in 1999-10 (R$). Note that SMS stuff will have prices listed with three different currencies, MD and GG two, and the others are no problem.

Master System releases in Brazil

Note: I typed the titles exactly how they are seen in magazines, catalogues etc.

1989 Releases

The following games were already set for release together with the console in 1989, though not all of them were available right away. They were already listed in the catalogue poster which came with the very first Brazilian version of the SMS. I still gotta find the newspaper(s) and possibly re-watch some interviews with Stefano Arnhold (Tectoy's former vice-president and later president) for actual proof. It's also worth to note that all of these games were released in cardboard, lacking the model number (some of them were later re-released in clamshells, with the model number informed).

Releases between 1989-09 and 1990-10

This comes from issue 17-A (pages 48-49) of A Semana em Ação - Games (which would later become Ação Games). There weren't magazines focused on videogames In Brazil before this one, so this may be useful to at least estimate when these were released.

Listed in the 1989 catalogue

These are most likely confirmed to have been released in 1989, between September 24 (console launch date) and December 31.

Not listed in the 1989 catalogue

These were most likely released through the whole year of 1990, since the magazine dates from December.

* The same mag says (p. 51-55) it had been released outside BR and was coming soon; plus the generalized "Mickey Mouse" title tells me it wasn't for sale. Ação Games 01 (1991-05) speaks about the release and VideoGame 03 (also 1991-05) has it in its section that mixes new releases with hints and cheats, which is hella confusing but kind of helps to confirm the correct date.

Mortal Kombat II Gameplay

The game is compatible with the six button controller, though it must be activated in the options menu. A and X are assigned for low and high punches, respectively, and X and Z for low and high kicks, also respectively. B and Y are used for blocking; Start pauses the game. With the three button controller, the commands are: A low punch, B low kick, Start block (this makes things much harder), (Left or Right)+A high punch and C high kick.

In the 8-bit versions 1 punches and 2 kicks (with no distinction of "low" and "high" blows) and blocking is performed with 1+2 in the Master System version, and Start in the Game Gear version.

Special Moves

Note: Assumes the player is standing, facing right. If facing left, Left and Right should be reversed.
