TRIVIA

Midnight Landing was released in May 1987. It represents the very first flight simulator in Japan!

In 1986, a prototype version was location tested.

The game designers wanted to have a background at noonday but this was canceled because technical problems happened.

8 years after this game, the famous sound team, zuntata, remaked the main music of this game in "Landing Gear".

Kyukyoku Tiger - G.S.M. Taito 2 [Pony Canyon / Scitron - D28B0008 - 1988.11.21]
