Noboranka was released in October 1986.
Data East licensed the game from Coreland for distribution in the U.S. Back in the early to mid 80's, Coreland and Sega collaborated on many games. For some reason, it didn't seem like Sega was interested in licensing this game from Coreland even though it had already been ready for manufacture on the System 1 Hardware. Obviously, Data East was interested, they indirectly licensed the System 1 Hardware that this game uses from Sega, even though it would be another 9 years before they would finally license hardware from Sega, for games they created. This seems to be the one and only game that Coreland sold to Data East.
Noboranka was one of the rarest game developed by coreland. Others are "119
" and "bepop".
This game is known as "Zippy Bug" outside Japan.
A bootleg of the game was made by Game Electronics.
