What is "Alien Soldier"?
Alien Soldier " is an action shooting game released on the Mega Drive in 1995.
The game was developed by Treasure, the same company known for "Gunstar Heroes" and "YuYu Hakusho: The Unification of Demonic Forces," both of which are also included in the Mega Drive Mini in Japan.
The game was developed at the end of the Mega Drive era, when the Sega Saturn was already on the market, and has been passed down as a masterpiece with beautiful dot graphics, a high level of difficulty, and excellent gameplay.
However, because it was released at the end of the Mega Drive's life, the number of copies shipped was small, and the software was at a premium, so SEGA fans must be overjoyed to see it included in this edition!
Alien Soldier" was a title known only to those in the know.
However, it made a strong impact when it appeared in " Almost Dead ", a manga serialized on KADOKAWA's website " ComicWalker ", in the work of Mr. " Almost Dead ".
SEGA has received unprecedented attention, including inquiries from "Uncle Otherworldly" readers.
The "Mega Drive Mini W Asia Edition" will include a "Happy 25th Alien Soldier Anniversary" postcard illustrated by "Almost Dead" as a bonus for those who purchase the game, so be sure to check out the "Alien Soldier 25th Anniversary" postcard. You can feel the love for "Alien Soldier" even more!
