    Summer Carnival '92 RECCA (サマーカーニバル'92 烈火) is a scrolling shooting game developed by KID and published by Naxat Soft and released for the Family Computer on July 17, 1992 in Japan. It's best known for pushing the Famicom hardware to it's limits with the high amount of sprites and fast action. The game sold poorly on initial release due to the Super Famicom being the primary focus, which resulted the game becoming a collectors item as being one of the rarest and most valuable games for the Famicom. Over 20 years after it's initial release the game would be re-released for the Nintendo 3DS via Virtual Console on December 12, 2012 in Japan and on September 5, 2013 in North America.


    Summer Carnival '92 RECCA was covered in the July 24, 1992 issue of Famitsu magazine. Four reviewers gave it scores of 4, 4, 6, and 5, with a total score of 19/40. The low reviews were primarily due to the high difficulty of the game. Marcel van Duyn from NintendoLife rated the game an 8/10 citing its for shoot 'em up experts only and mentioning how it's a hard recommendation due to the difficulty but is an impressive shoot 'em up for the Famicom.
