Originally released in the arcades in 1985 – today we have now found out a once lost port of the game The Fairyland Story for the NES and Famicom! This is brought to us by the folks over at Hard4Games and Forest of Illusion. Before today we had not even known this port existed so this is quite the find! The port was seemingly planned for a release sometime in 1986 or 1987 but outside of a brief mention in a Japanese magazine, the port never happened.
There’s plenty of differences from the arcade original including level design and enemy layouts. One interesting distinction is that the FMC port is only 50 levels instead of the original 101 and those 50 levels loop infinitely. There’s tons of more details in the video so be sure to check it out below!
