    icon35.gif More lost game title translations please

    I came across this is the lot of fliers I recieved. This is taken from the AOU SNK lineup brochure. I believe there are several lost game titles listed but was hoping someone could translate. I did what I could using what little skills I have (looking in the all about snk book ) and was hoping someone could confirm and fill in what is missing sorry for the big pic but felt it was needed to see the characters. i figure the columns are game, size, ???, and manf. note I put in the numbers of course



    what i got so far

    1 Savage Reign 190 Mega SNK
    2 ???? 100 Mega Visco
    3 ???? Data East
    4 Warlocks of fate 200 Mega Aztec21
    5 Magical Drop 3 Data east
    6 ???? Face
    7 Pulstar 232 Mega Aicom
    8 Stake winners Saurus
    9 Metal Slug 190 Mega Nazca
    10 ????? Saurus
    11 Q P Success
    12 ???? 156 Mega Visco
    13 ???? Saurus
    14 ???? 186 Mega Nazca
    15 ????????

    Good guesses on some, bad guess on one. I can read very little kanji, but katakana is as mother's milk:

    1 is Savage Reign
    2. Goal! Goal! Goal!
    3. something bare- (a sports game, I'd guess volleyball)
    4. no idea (action)
    5. is Sonic Wings 3 not MD3
    6. King of Athlete
    7 is Pulstar
    8 is Stakes Winner
    9 is Metal Slug
    10. Farm Guy (a shooter I've never heard of)
    11. QP (?!)
    12. Chicago (another action game I've never heard of)
    13. something-something-Ken (wish I could trade the kanji I know for useful kanji)
    14. World Tour Golf
    15. All Star Bare- (I'm taking bare- to be short for volleyball)

    Hopefully, that will hold you over until someone who can really read shows up. Not to sound (more) ignorant, but I haven't heard of half these games. Farm Guy?!

    Not to contradict you, but "O-ru Suta-" is phonetic for "All Star". "Ball" is written in katakana as "Bo-ru". I'm taking "Bare-" to be phonetic for "Volley", short for volleyball.

    3. Tatakai baree (a fighting volleyball game. I would have though Super Volley '94, finally Power Spikes II, but that was already released by this point. Could have been PSIII; who knows) ???Megs Video system
    4. Shinryuu Senki (you were right! Warlocks of Fate or whatever the accepted English interpretation is)
    10. Farm Guy (can only guess it was a working title for Brikin'ger, unless Saurus scrapped this game to make Ironclad)
    11. QP (puzzle game that does appear in old Neo Geo Freak issues)
    12. Chicago (probably an old name for Breaker's, unless Visco was developing some other fighter first)
    13. Chou Shin Ken (previous name for Shin Oh Ken aka Ragnagard aka a vastly underrated game)
    14. World Tour Golf (known to us all as Big Tournament Golf aka Neo Turf Masters)
    15. All Star Volley ???Megs by Mahou (developer sounds familiar -I have some old pamphlets & flyers myself, but no clue on the game)

    NEO GEO hardware, softawre, soundtracks, books, guides & everything else for sale!

    hey thanks,

    Guess i missed up on the 3 and 5 I figured MD3 then guessed Data east and went from there. Should have looked a aero fighters 3 and video systemsso the third column was Genre, should have guessed.

    interesting notes

    3.another volleyball game from video systems. well it could be Power spikes II the brochure is from the AOU 95 and PSII was a 95 release.

    4. Warlocks of Fate has a meg count. must have been done and ready to go. although the Meg counts appear to be a bit off on the games

    6. King of Athletes by Face??? must have died, also mentioned in EGM as a upcoming title

    10. Farm guy (also reported as Firm Guy i am assuming in looking at old egm issue) as a shooter. Maybe Iron clad but the name does not seem to fit.

    11. Chicago, Yet another working title for Breakers?

    15. Another volleyball game I never heard of a company Mahou would be interesting to see what they have done.

    thanks for the help. well nothing break through just some better clarfications i guess.

    hey

    15 could that be Monolith and the lasy odyssey pinball game. Maybe it is a strech but I know there are different interpatations.

    Do correct me if I'm wrong but Power Spikes II was released in late 1994. Checking the Neo CD even it bears _ゥ1994.

    About the meg counts, they changed throughout various stages of development as more stuff was added to & subtracted from the games. You can see this browsing old issues of Gamest and Neo Geo Freak. The missing titles would get up to about 95% complete generally with meg counts and even scheduled release dates in some cases, then would suddenly vanish never to be spoken of again.

    I suppose you could translate the katakana for "farm" as "firm" actually, but yes, that name is too strange.

    About 15, I doubt it would be Last Odyssey, unless the Japanese consider pinball to be a sports game and would disguise it under the name of a volleyball game. But is Last Odyssey's developer Monolith the same Monolith of Minasan no Okagesamadesu fame(/infamy)?

    The power spikes release date I just grabbed from the Master list.

    as I said I was reaching on 15. Just would fit the timeline, I never knew about another Volleyball game that was planned for the Neo around 95 so that is why I was trying to fit it in with a known game. Again I grabed monolith from the master list. But it appears to be wrong for King of Atheletes being made by SNK so I am sure it is not the end all source on things.

    That thing needs a solid revision

    I'm going to dig through all my NGF issues once exams are over in under a week and see if I can find anything else useful myself. I would just guess that 15 isn't Last Odyssey because it's at the end of the list by which time we are into 1996 releases, when the screen shots on Billy's page show it to be from 1995. http://members.tripod.com/fresa/prot...st_odyssey.htm

    Oh well, perhaps one day we'll eventually uncover everything.

    well here is more food for thought. These are from the Neo Geo CD catalog of 95. as you can see those games are listed in here as well. i am assuming the number correspond to the month it is coming out.

    bah! indeed you are correct sir.

    By the way, the 2nd from the bottom of the last list is Neo BomberMan. The rest, bar the entry below it and Crossed Swords II further up, have all been covered.

    I know the flyer photo/scan is still missing, but thank you for reposting the listing.

    I spent a while going through neogeocentral via the waybackmachine and searching for any remnants of the referenced photo url: neogeocentral.com/images/Protos/protolisting.jpg

    Of course, no dice, but I still wanted to give it a shot. I'm sure the listing you posted is correct, but I'm with you on wanting to double-check and make sure by verifying against an image of the original flyer.
