Satella-Q (サテラQ Satera Q) is a series of quiz game events for the Satellaview, an add-on for the Super Famicom. The game features Toad as the primary character, guiding players through the quizzes and minigames.

During the Satellaview's early years, St.GIGA broadcasted quiz events called Waiwai de Q (わいわいでQ), which would phase into being called "Satella-Q" after the third event. These aired in periodic intervals, unlike their traditional Soundlink broadcasts wherein the episodes were played week-by-week until the conclusion.

The game used the Satellaview's Soundlink technology to give the presentation of a quiz game show, with announcers presenting the questions for players to answer and music ranging from various sources ranging from classical to J-Pop to British Rock given use, sometimes playing key roles in the quizzes themselves.

Each episode was split into "rounds" that consisted of various types of quizzes, both in "multiple-choice" and "type-out the answer" forms, which ranged from Japanese cultural trivia to guessing the contents of obscured photorealistic pictures.

Sometimes non-quiz minigames would also be played, including one where players must move Toad through an area resembling a pool table, collecting the balls that the on-screen HUD requests. Another one features a game of cards that uses Poker cards with Yoshi on their backs.

Episode listings[edit]

Before the October 1995 broadcast, there were a handful of even earlier Satellaview quiz games under the name of "Satella-Q". However, these versions did not feature Toad (or any other Super Mario elements), and worked slightly differently than the later Toad versions.[2]

Cameos[edit]

It has been requested that this section be rewritten. Reason: better describe the images

  • In an episode of "Satellawalker 2 - Sate Bou wo Sukuedase!", Satella-Q's Event Plaza, the giant "Q" tower, is one of the decaying Event Plaza buildings hidden under the lake. Satella-Q's Event Plaza becomes BS Super Mario USA's Event Plaza and the giant "Q" tower becomes Birdo tower. The Birdo it depicts is based on her appearance in the Japanese advertisements for Super Mario USA's original Famicom release, wearing a fur boa.
