A prototype of Dragon Force for the Sega Saturn.


  • Compiled almost 5 months before the final US build.
  • English localization prototype.
  • This prototype presumably uses some files from a much earlier Japanese build as the basis for its translation. According to Victor Ireland in Intelligent Gamer, it was discovered in July/August that they had been working with older files and had to ultimately delay the game in order to use the proper data instead.
  • Lacks the Working Designs FMV intro.
  • Different title screen.
  • English localization has barely been begun at this point. Most of the dialog has been left untranslated.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable: Yes (as of April 17, 2021).
