So, Square made an Aliens game for the NES

0

1UP has blown the dust off an ancient artifact that once was lost to time -- an Aliens game developed by Squaresoft for the Nintendo Entertainment System. 

Aliens, based on the movie sequel of the same name, was a fairly typical sidescrolling platformer. Ellen Ripley does her thing, shooting Xenomorphs, avoiding pitfalls, and eventually shooting the Alien Queen. Fairly straightforward stuff, really. Only more awesome, because it's about Aliens

The game was designed for the Japan-only Famicon Disc System, but it got as far as an MSX release before vanishing off the face of the Earth. 1UP has some footage of the game in action if you want to take a look. 

I love Aliens.
