Mad Stalker: Full Metal Forth Sega Mega Drive, Genesis Compatible Retro Cartridge, Collectors Edition

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 the 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.

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 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.

Strictly Limited Games is releasing a physical Limited Edition and Collector’s Edition of Mad Stalker: Full Metal Forth, with a compatible cartridge for Sega Mega Drive & Sega Genesis.

Pre-orders will kick off on Sunday, October 10th, 2021 at 12 AM (midnight) CEST.
