    Question Air Busters registration card found relating to the KANEKO gloves , Interesting

    Sorry if I'm making a little to many posts here in the collector's thread. This might be the last one I'll be making in a while anyways.

    So many of you already know how in the back of the Air Buster's case for the Sega Genesis. It states how it offers KANEKO gloves?



    Well I recently sold my old copy of Air Buster to obtain another copy in better condition, which has been pretty good doing with a few of my games lately. Anyways when my copy arrived, it came with something I wasn't expecting. It was a registration card, a possibly rare one at that.

    It's a reg card stating an apology to the customer about not receiving their gloves.

    So it's possible these guys never got around making the gloves due to time constraints.
    This is also possibly why we never seen these gloves to begin with.

    Now this also kind of pisses me off for the fact that I could have bought a copy of Air Busters with the gloves included, lol.

    They also had the glove offer in their magazine ads too.

    Man, I just love retro advertising. Take control of your warship, fast and furious action and the game is hot! But you only get one glove so I guess the left hand is gonna burn!

    They did actually put the glove out...a buddy from Alt.Sega.Genesis, Mojo Jojo, sent me a picture of one on his hand. I still find it amusing that they would even attempt this for a game that allows for the option of "Auto Fire". ;)

    That looks like a left-handed glove. But the one on the box looks right-handed. Which is it? This is the first actual evidence I have ever seen of the glove's actual existence, by the way. I guarantee it gives the player the advantage when trying to save the entire universe!

    I'm not real sure...it's possible he shot it in a mirror, it's possible the one on the box is mirrored...maybe they just sent out random versions of it. I don't really have any way of getting a hold of Mojo anymore, and his email back on ASG/RGVS was with Prodigy(which I don't think is around anymore)...so I'm not really sure how to get more info on it.

    Sad thing is that, that is the only picture of the glove on the net. I'm willing to send this reg card to kaneko if they are still in that same address.

    Then I'm glad I was able to get it from him; like most, I'd really only ever seen it in the magazine ads. I think I was doing a quick review for Air Buster at the time, or maybe just talking about it in ASG/RGVS and he mentioned that he actually had it. I think the picture I added was the full-res shot he got of it(this was a while back, so the phone he must have shot it on probably didn't have the greatest of resolution), but I'll try to take a look and see if I have anything larger...I'll also see if I can dig up the thread where he talked about it, see if there's any further info to add.

    If I haven't added anything by the weekend, just post a reply(or shoot me a PM) to remind me...

    Lol, I actually wondered about that glove when you first posted the game for sale. Glad to see it exists.

    There are "gaming gloves" like that for the Turbo Grafx 16 too.

    Fingerless gloves make you tougher. Just like a fedora makes you classier.

    I'm not convinced that the glove exists, or that the thumbs-up photo is definitely showing the same thing...

    What about these? They're for Genesis and TG-16, and Air Buster/Blaster came out for those two consoles. Could they be related in some way?
