Really hard to find solid release dates on games released before 1990. Nobody really knows the exact release date for the North American NES. Those kinds of records either get lost over time, or forgotten about over time. Also, many games back then didn't use to have hard release dates, retails would just drop whatever game related products they had on the shelves whenever they got them in stock. Single release-day launches across all stores were really not a thing.
