    Edited for your pleasure and convenience. For the raw 600dpi source files, please visit https://archive.org/details/@japanesemagazinesscanproject *PLEASE NOTE: Gamest is printed in right-to-left Japanese reading style. If viewing two pages at a time, you will need to set your CBR reader to Japanese mode so that the pages will display in the correct order. I have moved the survey postcards to the end of the archive, since they interfered with the correct display of the pages when using two-page viewing mode.

    Saga Frontier 2, Metal Gear Solid, and Suikoden II are just a few of the games featured here that Western gamers are familiar with. But as always, the main interest here (for me, anyway) are the dozens upon dozens of Japanese-only exclusives you might not have read about before. ENJOY! 232 pages *Please note that there was one page that had been torn out of the magazine. The front side was the second half of a two-page advertisement and is missing from this scan. The back side was a different ad, which I have included here using an identical copy of the ad from a different magazine. *EDIT: The missing page has been provided by Akane and is now included in the download, making this mag COMPLETE!

    The credits on this one are more complicated than usual, so an explanation is in order. This issue was a collaboration between ccovell and myself. The magazine itself was donated by ccovell, but after I scanned it, I realized there were some pages missing. It turned out that there was a Dragon Quest III sticker sheet as well as a Dragon Quest III supplement missing from the copy that was donated to me. Normally supplements would be considered separate anyway, but in this case, the supplement was included in the magazine's page count, so I wanted to include it. ccovell was kind enough to scan the supplemental pages from another copy he owns. So: pg 67-68 and 77-96 were scanned by ccovell. All other pages were scanned by me. All edits by me. This issue marks the (as of yet) oldest issue of Famitsu to be scanned for our archives (the scan of issue 1 is of a half-size reproduction, not an original issue). Enjoy! I'll also include some information about the best seller lists and game-of-the-year awards which I posted in my personal thread in the forums, since it's likely that most people downloading this will overlook it otherwise: And for a complete breakdown of all of the Best-of-the-year Awards, please check out this comment (I can't copy it here without causing an error for some reason): https://www.retromags.com/forums/topic/10237-kitsunebi77s-random-stuff/?do=findComment&comment=54381

    Again, it's interesting to me how hardcore this magazine is. Admittedly it can seem a bit dry if you just want to look at pictures, but it's also refreshing that it isn't full of promotional fluff like most game mags - this mag focuses on information meant for hardcore PC game enthusiasts. When you consider that many of the games being discussed aren't even available in Japanese (the coverage of the PC release of Final Fantasy VII laments the fact that it's only available in English), you've just gotta respect the beleaguered Japanese PC gamer who has no choice but to study the monthly column teaching English phrases to use when forced to play games against international opponents, since most Japanese gamers only ever fired up their PCs to play visual novels and porn games.

    Summon Night 2 may have made the cover, but the main story in this issue is 24 pages on Final Fantasy X, which also earned an impressive 100, 95, 95, 85 from their review crew.

    The front and back cover of this mag were in pretty gruesome condition. I've done what I could. Also, please note that while the mag itself is complete, I believe this issue shipped with a supplement covering part of Final Fantasy VI, which was not included with my copy.

    Lotsa good stuff this issue. The main features: Parasite Eve (25 pages and a poster!) Resident Evil 2 (18 pages) Tekken 3 (10 pages) Xenogears (8 pages) Bushido Blade 2 (6 pages) Final Fantasy V (6 pages) By the way, the fold-out poster I stitched together looks pretty great. If anyone is interested in having a full-size copy (much bigger than the one included in this file), I uploaded it here: https://mega.nz/#!EBxjzCpS!Yv2RRJsutCUNNUuPDZxjs8-MBHFzbfOzmRO0JX6KfnE It's full 600dpi at 6026x9100px and could be printed out as an actual poster by a printing service if you were so inclined.
