'89 Dennō Kyūsei Uranai (JP) is a Nintendo Entertainment System game released on December 10, 1988 by Jinguukan Polaris. This game is a horoscope simulator designed to predict your fortune in 1989; however this meant that the game lost its purpose when the year had passed, as it was only launched nearly a month before the year of 1989 in Japan.
When you start the game, you are asked to enter your details. This includes year (19XX is the only option, so if you're born in the 200's, you can shut it down) month, day, and gender.
The main menu has 5 different options. Two of them have several more sub-categories.
