1986 meant Metroid, it meant Legend of Zelda..it meant Castlevania..it meant Alex Kidd and it meant new video game companies like Ubisoft, Acclaim and Majesco in the western regions while companies like Nintendo, Sega and SNK became more successful and bigger in 1986.

In short..1986 was a damn important year for video game players. Till today we are playing and liking many of the game characters which were “born” in 1986 with Link and Samus Aran being the most prominent ones among the many. The first Batman game was released in 1986 as well as new and innovative arcade games like Bubble Bobble
