I wasn't sure where to put this so I made a new topic. Feel free to merge this somewhere else if you know a better place for it.

I went on a trip to Tokyo in December 2014 and I looked for magazines with Sonic previews/reviews. At Mandarake, I found this September 1991 issue of Hippon Super which reviewed final Sonic 1. In the mag there were three pages covering schedules for release of games for various consoles. Here they are:

Also, the Sonic 1 pages if anyone's interested (the review covers a final Sonic 1 but the ad has late beta screenshots):

Breath of Fire 1 scheduled to release as early as 1991?!

Lode Runner for Famicom, listed in this 1991 list, must then be the lesser-known re-release version (with a picture label, compared to the common text label)

Yes, it's listed under the "scheduled for re-release" section.

The Famicom list has all of the usual unreleased suspects from that era, as well as a couple of ultra-obscure, barely documented ones.

I can't recall if it carried into these monthly Hippon Supers, but back in the Famicom Hisshoubon biweekly heyday, their upcoming releases rumor column was called "Famicom Jigoku Mimi" and was pretty entertaining.
