Capcom's First Console Game1942 for the NES marks Capcom's first home video game.
C16 versionThe game was in development for the Commodore 16, with loading instructions for the system appearing in other formats released by Elite, and an infamous April Fool of the title screen and music being produced. Richard Ikin revealed years later that he was working on it, with graphics provided by an unknown artist, but it was cancelled by Elite while fairly advanced in development. Sadly Richard has nothing of the original code, and his attempt at creating it as a hobby in the mid-2010s stalled due to real life issues.
