Without further ado, your 2018 SNExploration Contestants:
Konpeki no Kantai
Konpeki no Kantai (“Deep Blue Fleet”) is a naval combat strategy game for various Japanese systems. Originally released on the PC-FX console in 1995, it was quickly ported to 3DO and Super Famicom the same year with different developer/publisher teams.
The game is based on an original video animation (OVA) that reimagines the Pacific Theater during World War 2 in which the Japanese navy had a significant advantage that would lead to a different outcome to the global conflict. This advantage is the eponymous submarine fleet, which proves to be almost unstoppable. The OVA was in turn inspired by a novel by Yoshio Aramaki of the same name.
Cal Ripken Jr. Baseball
Cal Ripken Jr. Baseball is a baseball game for the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, released at the end of 1992. With the exception of the game’s namesake, former Baltimore Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken Jr., all the athletes in the game are fictionalized, as are the teams, as the game does not have the MLB license.
The game has Exhibition and League modes, with the latter allowing the player to take a team through a whole league and into the playoffs if they perform well enough. A password system allows the player to continue where they left off.
Bishoujo Wrestler Retsuden - Blizzard Yuki Rannyuu!!
Bishoujo Wrestler Retsuden: Blizzard Yuki Rannyuu (sometimes referred to as Beauty Girl Wrestling: Blizzard Yuki’s Riot) is a wrestling game published by KSS for the Super Famicom and released in Japan in 1996. The game served as a tie in promotion for the manga Blizzard Yuki (which itself is based off the real All Japan Women’s Pro Wrestling Joshi wrestler Takako Inoue). This game takes place in the Wrestle Angels universe, featuring many characters and story lines from Wrestle Angels V1.
In the story mode, the player manages the career of a chosen Joshi wrestler, determining training days and matches via a schedule system. The game also features exhibition and other wrestling competition modes. Similar to the Wrestle Angels series, the matches themselves are almost entirely automated, though instead of using cards to suggest moves to their wrestler the player taps buttons instead.
