A prototype of Magic Knight Rayearth for the Sega Saturn.


The Cutting Room Floor research
  • Compiled over a year before the final US build.
  • Build is also over a year past the original release date, "July 1996". The source for which comes from an May 96(or issue 89 page 69) interview in "Video Games: The Ultimate Gaming Magazine"
  • English localization prototype.
  • The opening FMV is different, featuring a different English take of the opening theme. The FMV was ripped right from the television show.
  • Different title screen.
  • Japanese Voice acting is still mostly intact, save for the intro and a few lines from the prologue. Dubbing wouldn't be complete until well into 1998.
  • Grammar and text differences.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable: Yes (as of April 17, 2021).
