    There wasn't an article accompanying it - it was just the illustration in Treasure's monthly spread in Beep MD.

    I think it is a ZAX ERX318. I had seen this page listing the ZAX ERX318 which Sega...

    I was hoping someone might recognize the design of the ICE - it might be an exposed circuit board on top of casing? I couldn't find anything like this documented online, though.

    Mega Drive Development Hardware Question

    Can anyone recognize what development hardware might be represented in the center of this illustration?

    This is from late 1993 in Japan. It was drawn by Treasure programmer NAMI and shows his...

    But the entertainment is derived from the content supposedly being based on fact.

    If they started with the disclaimer "We just made up all of this" then they wouldn't get many viewers.

    He had several people help him translate the cover/manual, but I guess they missed the "For All Ages" text or he just ignored it because it didn't go with the narrative. Also, he never really...

    Well, if you have a cover that weird, I guess you better have a weird manual too!

    But it seems obvious to me that it was just the designer having fun and doing something off-the-wall creative.

    Astro City cabs didn't come out until 1993, though, right? I think most of these games appeared on Aero City cabs. Astro City cabs are probably more iconic Sega, though, so it's easy to see why they...

    I think pre-rendered CGI backgrounds were just standard design in the mid 1990s. Countless games used them, and quite a few huge titles several years before DKC. DKC got a lot of attention because it...

    Since Sega Toys is releasing this, probably not high. But I guess if there's enough interest in this then that might attract the attention of Sega Corp.
