Enter the Space Fantasy Zone: The 1991 Retrogame That Never Was…

Posted by Michael Pinto on Nov 24, 2008 in Videogames |

Space Fantasy Zone (スペースファンタジーゾーン)was the unreleased followup to the 1985 Sega arcade game Fantasy Zone (ファンタジーゾーン) which was later ported to a wide range of systems from the Nintendo Famicom to the Sharp X68000. The reason Space Fantasy Zone was never released was because NEC developed the game without getting permission from Sega who made it a point of not letting them put it out. The 1991 title was created for the NEC PC Engine Super CD-ROM2 platform which is known in the United States as the TurboGrafx-CD. Over the years a prototype of the game has been floating around (which is what this video is from) and rumor has it that an ISO of the SuperCD has been leaked in the past.

I’d love to see Sega burry the hatchet and allow an official release after all of these years. What I love about this lost gem are all of the cute little anime elements sprinkled through out the game:
