In October 1978, SUNSOFT began to develop video games in arcades with two titles, Block Challenger and Block Perfect. In the early 1980s, we had several arcade hits such as Arabian, Ikki, and Kangaroo. On July 25, 1985 we released the first Famicon (NES) title Super Arabian in Japan under the SUNSOFT brand.
