  • Possibly dated to late 1993 or early 1994. November 15, 1993 is given for one of the black slides, but it is unknown if that date represents all of what's shown in this tape.
  • Ristar uses his old sprite, similar to the one used in early previews showcasing an early prototype in magazines.
  • Recorded on PAL SECAM VHS.
  • This was possibly created by Sega of Japan to showcase various styles and combinations to various Sega executives and producers to iron out a design that would be more appealing to the market that Sonic previously gathered.
  • Has a little bit of gameplay for Seima Densetsu 3x3 Eyes for the Sega Mega CD.
