It was only released in Japan, and it currently commands very high prices on sites such as eBay (an expensive Saturn import? NO WAY!). While we can’t go out and buy everone a copy, we can at least show you what you may have missed. We’ve put the game through its paces and can at least offer another glimpse into the world of Tempo and his friends.
