In December 2008 GDRI has created a topic in the Lost Levels forum linking to a japanese blog, that had posted some scans with cancelled Sega Mega CD games. One of these unreleased games is Ookami Hei (Wolf Soldier – Ranpin) an action game that was in development by SIMS. As Dais suggests in the same topic, it seems that the working title of the game was “Ranpin” as also noted by Gamengai:
Ranpin: A side-scrolling action game by Sims, which was to be compatible with the Fighting Pad 6B. Had a setting like that of Dennin Aleste (a mechanical, medievil Japan) and featured the same character designer as Devil Buster.

Okami is japanese for wolf
I believe Ookami actually means god or superior being
It seems there is an ookami meaning ‘god’, but the first kanji in the screenshot is the one defined as ‘wolf’.
I’m not sure about the correct translation, but that title was one of the different translations used in various forums / communities to indicate the game, so i just added it too ;)
