Did NEC make the wrong decision by making Bonk their mascot?

Recommended Posts

With that logic, then also adventure island (takahashi meijin) would be another possibility as well as it was established between arcade, nintendo and gameboy as well too just like Bonk(not arcade.)

No Because Adventure Island never came out on the PC Engine until 1992 and that was New Adventure Island. Bravoman was released in Japan a bit earlier than Bonk and would cater to the teen crowd and older kids, which Adventure Island wouldn't anyway. Adventure Islands main audience, whatever amount, was already on NES and one late game in 1992 wouldn't make sense to bundle and/or mascot when NEC was already stabbing themselves by that time.

 

Also, there was another "Adventure Island" that came out earlier but it was NA Dragons Curse which was the Hudson remake of Wonder Boy III, but in Japan it was called "Adventure Island" for some reason. But not the same series you're mentioning.
