Othello Shiyouyo

A Japan-exclusive arcade game adaptation of the board game Othello.


Othello Shiyouyo, loosely translated to "Let's Play Othello", is a virtual board game developed and released by Success (along with Itsui) for arcades (using Saturn-based ST-V hardware) exclusively in Japan in 1998.

An adaptation of the board game Othello, Othello Shiyouyo features an anime theme and multiple game modes (including one that is simply a series of lessons, one with multiple opponents to play against, and a Story Mode).

Its cast and lesson mode were later used for the handheld NGPC game Pocket Reversi.
