    No, it's all downloads and patches. I'm just wondering that if it's the translating that they're charging for, why others do it for free. I have no clue how much a production run for this sort of thing would cost, I suppose if you were doing 100 or less it'd be easier to buy in a bunch of old sports games for next to nothing and re-use the carts (rather than manufacture your own), stick an EEPROM in and sort out some bulk order of boxes... I guess that is kind of a laborious process. If they've got some more complicated production run going (manufacturing ROM chips or whatever) I really wouldn't have any idea what the costs involved would be.

    I read a few interviews the team chief had done and iirc the whole physical media has been made from scratch. (I don't think they're using old sports games but tbh I wouldn't mind, at least they'd have a use:))

    I don't know about the translating though.

    has anyone actually seen the box art for these games? Is it in the Genesis or older PAL Mega Drive style? They were horrid !

    What a load of shit ! the picture is crap but the layout ! I could do better with my eyes closed ! Why go for the shitest look out of all Mega Drive box types ? The JPN boxes are best by far but they still could have used the later PAL and Brazilian blue boarder boxes. Some people just have no idea of what looks nice.

    Well each to their own. I quite like the cover I suppose, plus it really does capture that retro feel. I like the dual md/genny logo too. At least its a marked contrast to the rest of my md games which are by and large jp.

    And hey there's no accounting for taste. Some neo collectors go nuts over the bordered 'classic' inserts..personally I think those are shite. Each to their own and you don't have to buy it:)

    Regardless just rejoice there is a 'new' md game out for us english speakers! I am.

    Got my copy a few days ago, but haven't had time to play it yet. The cover art is a bit gash, but the manual & cart are pretty good quality.
    All the stuff was manufactured new, though the box is of the same style used by loads of bootlegs/pirates - slightly thinner than a standard MD/G case with 'grip handles' where you open it. The cover insert is slightly too tall aswell, so a couple of millimetres poke out of the plastic.

    The box art etc isn't great, but being the sega fanboy i a, i'm still very tempted.
