Another superb multi-event sports game from Konami, following on from 1996's incredible update of 'International Track and Field'. Nagano is based around the Winter Olympics of 1998 and features ten Olympic events cased around skating, skiing, luge, bobsleigh, slalom and curling.


Game ID : GX720


Released just shortly prior to the start of its real-life namesake, exclusively in host country Japan. The actual 1998 Winter Olympics ran from February 7 to 22, 1998.
