Update: thanks to Yakumo we found out that this game was released as Deadalus in Japan (in Europe and the States as “Robotica”) for the Sega Saturn! As he noted, probably the magazine did a poor translation of the katakana and came up with “Daidaros”. The game was by Micronet who only ever made Sega games, so it’s possible that the news about a Playstation version was just another mistake.
Thanks to linlhutz for the contribution!
It seems that a mech game titled “Daidaros” was in development for the Playsation, but as far as we know, it was never released. Celine found a screen of the game in CD Console magazine issue 3, but sadly there are no info about Daidaros’ developers in their article, so we cant check if this project could have been released under a different name. If you recognize the mech in the scan, please let us know!
hehehe, that screen shot is from the Japanese Satun game, Deadalus. Check out the scans on my site – http://www.segagagadomain.com/saturn3/deadlus-f.jpg
I guess the magazine writer did a poor translation of the katakana and came up with Daidaros. I don’t think the game was ever planned for the PSX though. It was by Micronet who only ever made Sega games.
Great eye and memory Yakumo! :D Thanks a lot for the help :)
Damn you unknown journalist, damn you :-)
Don’t worry. Magazine journalist back in the 90’s always made mistakes. Basically they’d get the latest Japanese magazines then copy the information. Funny thing is that most of them couldn’t read any Japanese which explains the poor translation of Deadalus as Daidaros (^o^).
Eh, I know it was ironic :-)
Think that happened to me to read a small snippet on a italian magazine where the journalist lost the name of the game they had the screenshots to show.
Luckily later I discovered that it was Metamor Kid Goomin.
Thats the game i thought of when i saw the pic Deadalus
you can’t fool the mono celine :)
This was also released in Europe and the States as Robotica
Thanks for the info Linlhutz! :)
