Pokemon first came as a Nintendo Game Boy game in Japan on February 27th, 1996. The Pokemon game was followed by the trading card game, manga, anime, and merchandise. Today Pokemon is a popular international franchise with fans from all over the world. Check out one of the many Pokemon materials we have today.

The Legend of Zelda was released in Japan on February 21st, 1986. The game's creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, wanted to bring the sense of adventure seen in movies such as Indiana Jones to a video game. The Legend of Zelda featured non-linear gameplay, puzzles, battles, and exploration. This game was the first installment in the Zelda franchise that would be followed by 18 main games, several spin-offs, and many remakes. Which Zelda game is your favorite?

The classic arcade game Street Fighter II was released 30 years ago in February 1991. Street Fighter II kicked off the popularity of fighting games in the 1990s and allowed players to select from multiple playable characters. Each character had a distinct fighting style and special moves. Street Fighter II had the first combo system that allowed players to link attacks the opponent couldn't block. This type of combo system, which started as a bug, is now a standard feature in fighting games.

Check out one of the materials below in honor of Street Fighter II's anniversary!

Activities:

  • Learn how to make a friendship bracelet using one of the resources below. Take a photo of your creation and share it with us by using the #howdoyou62 hashtag.
