    Genesis Alien Soldier - Removed Contents Discovered in ROM

    I didn't see this posted here yet and figured some of you might not know about it.

    All credit goes to 'Zetaman' on Youtube for finding these. Check out his comments in the video descriptions for more info.

    First, the completed boss 'Love Penguin', who was replaced with the moth Bug Max in the release version of the game:



    Next, the in-progress boss 'Lambda Bunny', who appeared in NAMI's sketch for the cover design and in a manga he drew but who was cut from the release version:



    Here is some dialogue between the bosses and the player character that was cut from the final version (turn on CC for English):



    Zetaman has said he's discovered more things, as well, so I'm hoping he puts together more videos.

    Masato Maegawa has said that the released version of Alien Soldier is only about 50% complete... It's fun to get a glimpse of what might have been.

    Zetaman also updated the TCRF page for Alien Soldier with more recovered content, including cutscene graphics:

    Really fantastic news! Get a slight glimpse about this game should have been.

    A new video from Zetaman - and a very interesting one, at that:



    I think this is VERY old text from the game - probably left over from an early revision. None of the names / characters match the "final version" design docs and I've never seen any before. Wandaba? Animal Gang?!

    Zetaman's been busy... Now he's uncovered remnants of the two lost forms of Seven Force:



    The names are Harpy Force and Nemesis Force.

    This is amazing.... never thought I ever see any of the lost 50% content of Alien Soldier, massive thanks to Zetaman for his hard work and efforts!

    This was already known and found in the PS2 version of Treasure's collection in the PS2, the names are heard in the soundtrack selection screen of Alien Soldier.

    In more recent news, a lot of original art from Alien Soldier has resurfaced.

    Original cover of the game,








    And this was interesting news about the Sega Mega Drive mini Asia version,

    FYI: That art hasn't really 'resurfaced' - it's on the PS2 Sega Ages 2500 Gunstar Heroes Treasure Box release as extras (the colored ones come from Treasure's old website, IIRC). Also FYI: I'm the one that translated that first one of the cover art sketch, and you can expect a lot more of that in my upcoming book since I'm literally working on it right now.

    Ah thanks for clearing that up. Also, there's this piece of Epsilon Eagle artwork shown in this magazine image scan that I couldn't find anywhere else. So I went ahead and cleaned it up to best of my skills because I wanted to preserve it.

    It's such a great piece!
