 After the 1973 Oil Crisis, Nintendo had to abandon its grand plans to use Japan'​s bowling alleys as electronic shooting ranges. ​ They reduced the size of the system so that it could be sold as an [[arcade]] game.  The ''​Laser Clay Shooting System''​ was adapted for the smaller setup and was sold to arcades as ''​Mini Laser Clay''​. ​ Sales for Nintendo'​s ''​[[Simulation System]]''​ started off slowly, but they gradually increased in volume, which led to Nintendo adapting the system for use with other 16-mm films. ​ The additional games were ''​[[Wild Gunman]]''​ in 1974, ''​[[Shooting Trainer]]''​ and ''​[[Sky Hawk]]''​ in 1976, ''​[[Battle Shark]]''​ and ''​[[Test Driver]]''​ in 1977, and ''​[[New Shooting Trainer]]''​ in 1978. After the 1973 Oil Crisis, Nintendo had to abandon its grand plans to use Japan'​s bowling alleys as electronic shooting ranges. ​ They reduced the size of the system so that it could be sold as an [[arcade]] game.  The ''​Laser Clay Shooting System''​ was adapted for the smaller setup and was sold to arcades as ''​Mini Laser Clay''​. ​ Sales for Nintendo'​s ''​[[Simulation System]]''​ started off slowly, but they gradually increased in volume, which led to Nintendo adapting the system for use with other 16-mm films. ​ The additional games were ''​[[Wild Gunman]]''​ in 1974, ''​[[Shooting Trainer]]''​ and ''​[[Sky Hawk]]''​ in 1976, ''​[[Battle Shark]]''​ and ''​[[Test Driver]]''​ in 1977, and ''​[[New Shooting Trainer]]''​ in 1978.
