First Screenshots: NES Port of Space Ace

Posted on September 6th, 2008 by Frank Cifaldi

Screenshots from a previously-unknown (and, of course, unreleased) port of Space Ace for the Nintendo Entertainment System have surfaced, via recently-created scans of the December 1991 issue of Italian games magazine Console Mania.

A brief article on page 11 of the Old Computer Mags-made scan previews two of what were then upcoming NES games - Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace, both stripped-down ports of Don Bluth’s laser disc-based, fully-animated arcade games (both of which are still available for purchase via Digital Leisure).

The article itself does not contain too much information on the Space Ace port - in short, the author says that the release date is unknown and that the graphics look nice. I’ve cropped and artificially “enhanced” the two shots from the article which, as far as I’m aware, are the first shots from this particular port seen on the internet. You may enjoy them as you see fit below, or view the original scan.
