TV Documentary???

Like, "The rise and fall of Feudal Japan Game Gear RPGs"?

I'd say that looks more like a Sega promotional video, or a video game magazine's monthly/bimonthly video.

Sorry, TV documentary wasn't the right word, should have said "video documentary". I don't know the exact source of this, I'll ask.

これはセガのビデオマガジン(セガ・プロモーションのビデオ)
に収録されていました。
発売日が決定してはいたのですが発売中止になりました。
広告チラシや特集も組まれていました。

This was recorded from Sega Video Magazine (a Sega promotion video).
The day of release was announced (29 October 1993? or 1994?) but then it wasn't released.

Not sure how to translate the last sentence.

Very interesting... It looks like a nice game. I wonder why this game was cancelled.

By the way, if you throw the japanese name into the Google, you can find some more info, like THIS TWEET, where you can see a magazine scan with some illustrations of this game.

I would like to know if this game can be found someday... Let's see if someone can dig it and share it. :)

YOSUKE OKUNARI commented about this game in a TWEET some time ago... But not any new relevant information.

VIDEO



But it interesting to see someone who work at Sega citing an unreleased/canceled game...
