    Default Haja no Fuuin - Miracle Warriors (Mark III)

    I recently posted this over in Import-Mania but since there were no responses I figured I'd post in a more heavy-traffic section. Still fits in classic games anyway, so I probably should have posted here to begin with.

    I recently picked this game up for the SG-1000 Mark III from the DP store. I was in the nice large cardboard box and labeled as "Gold Cartridge", which was pretty much the only English other than "Sega" on the whole box so it took me a while to identify. Eventually I figured out it was the Japanese version of Miracle Warriors. It came with the plastic insert and the cloth map (which is very nice by the way, much better than the ones you see today), but it was missing the mini figurine which apparently was packaged with it. I've been searching the interwebs but I can't find much information on the Japanese release or on the figurine which my copy is missing. Can anyone help me out with some more information? Was the "Gold Cartridge" the only version or was it rerelease or special edition? What was the figurine of and is it near impossible to buy one in 2010?

    To me it seems like a cool little collector's piece because I never see Mark III stuff over here, especially RPGs, and I love Sega history, but is there anything particularly special about Haja no Fuuin for Mark III or is it more of a run of the mill import?

    I've also added pictures for clarification or in case anyone is particularly interested.

    Holy crap! That is insanely cool. That map is amazing. Why didn't Brutal Legend come with something like that?

    The cover of the game amuses me. Is there any chance in hell that cover would ever show up on an American release? Big boobed naked devil women aren't really associated with '80s game art over here.

    I also like the cover art. Gotta appreciate it as something that we'd never see over here. And yeah, the map is awesome. I know you can't really tell the size from the picture, but it's about 36x24 inches. Pretty amazing.

    I can see immediately why you purchased it. =p

    I had no idea Haja no Fuuin was Miracle Warriors. I just recently got the game cart only for the Famicom. Needless to say the artwork is not as... ahem... "impressive" on the Famicom release. In fact, the cover is about 2/3rds nothing but logo. http://www.gamefaqs.com/nes/578486-h...ages/box-18707

    [edit: Ooooh to answer your question, here's a pic of Haja no Fuuin w/ the figurine: http://www.gamefaqs.com/sms/588104-m...mages/box-3840 ]
