Title screen.

'89 Dennou Kyuusei Uranai is one of those horoscope sims that used to be very popular in Japan in the early days of home consoles. They still exist today, but they tend to be extended to more interactive dating sims rather than just walls of text to read.

This game being released in December 1988 and namely so, it was designed to predict your fortune for the upcoming year 1989. This makes attempting to play it already kind of useless once the year had passed. Therefore one can only look back at what the computer predicted for you back in 1989.

Getting started[edit]

  • Start button: Begin the game
  • Neutral dpad: Change options
  • A button: Make selection
  • B button: Go back to previous screen

First you are asked to insert your details. The year can only be 19XX, so if you were born in the year 2000 or later, you can forget about playing this already. Next up is month and day. When all is entered, select the male or female icons to finish up, and press Start button.

The main menu has five different categories. The first two have several more sub-catogories to choose from.

Select a month from 1 through 12 to read about your monthly fortune. This is based on the year 1989 like the other fortunes. In Japanese, the character for month is also used to express the name of the month. For example "1 Month" would be January. Quite simple.

日運 Daily Fortune[edit]

You can only get the fortune from the year 1989 when the game was released. Pretty useless now. Input the rest of the month and day to be given your fortune.

男女相性 Male-Female Compatibility[edit]

Enter the second persons' date of birth to get a compatibility meter. If you select the same sex as yourself then you crash the game, but you still get some interesting messages. Check this out at least once to see.
