Strictly Limited Games annonce Mad Stalker Full Metal Forth sur Mega Drive en Occident. Il est paru précédemment le 17 septembre 2020 au Japon.

"Strictly Limited Games and Opera House are pleased to announce Mad Stalker: Full Metal Forth, an epic single player, side scrolling, beat-em up retro title, as a compatible cartridge for the Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis

Mad Stalker: Full Metal Forth was originally developed by Fill-In-Cafe and released by Family Soft in January 1994 for X68000, then ported to FM TOWNS, PC Engine, PlayStation and more. The Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis version was being developed at the same time as the first X68000 version, but was discontinued due to various issues. It was only in 2018 that Opera House took over the development of this version under supervision of the original team, and completed it in the autumn of 2020, 26 years after its inception. A limited number of copies was sold very successfully in Japan and now, Strictly Limited Games is bringing this physical retro cartridge release exclusively to the West, available for pre-order starting on October 10th, 2021at 12 AM (midnight) CEST.

The year is 2142 and a war is waging in Artemis City. In the last moments of the war, a warship is discovered containing hundreds of mecha, called SlaveGears, which are seized by the military. Two of those mechas, Hound Dog and Rising Dog, are put into experimental use by the police. As Rising Dog goes rogue under the control of the evil warship Omega, which jams the military networks of Artemis City, Hound Dog is deployed to save the City and stop Rising Dog

Mad Stalker: Full Metal Forth presents a number of unique and unusual ideas in an authentic retro experience for Genesis/Mega Drive owners. Gameplay mechanics resemble a mix between traditional Beat 'em Up and 2D fighting games, so the player, taking control of a SlaveGear mecha Hound Dog, has to think about their next move thoroughly to advance through the 6 Stages, each with an individual boss fight at the end. In addition to the single-player campaign, the game also includes a versus mode where two human opponents face each other with the mecha of their choice in one-on-one matches until the fighter who manages to deplete the health bar of the opponent before the timer runs out wins the bout. A single human player can also fight against a computer-controlled opponent as well.
