A cancelled Mega Drive / Genesis RPG, as we can read at Sega16:
“It was an RPG based on a serialized story that ran in Beep magazine in Japan in 1989. The magazine staff teamed up with Sega to develop the game and it seems like some progress was made on it. They hired Hitoaki Minami of Advanced Daisenryaku fame to work on it but after being heavily promoted in Beep it was eventually canceled after 6 months.”
“Expected release was March 1990. Gameplay was story-based adventure with battles being grid-based strategy and there were also RPG elements. Seems like a lot of progress was made on the game. I wonder if a prototype will ever turn up.”
