Beggar Prince

If you're the type that consistently trawls the web for gaming oddities, as I am, you may have heard of the recently released Beggar Prince. For those that haven't heard, Beggar Prince is an RPG for the Sega Genesis, the first commercial release for that platform in the U.S. since 1998. Originally released in Taiwan in 1996 by C&E Inc. as Xin Qi Gai Wang Zi(I'll have to do some more research to find the chinese characters), Beggar Prince looks to be a pretty standard Japanese-style RPG. And now a U.S. company by the name of Super Fighter Team has brought the game to an English speaking audience in the United States.

For more information on Super Fighter Team and why Beggar Prince was chosen for localization, check out this preview/interview at Also, a review of a non-final build of the game received a score of 3.5/5.0 in Hardcore Gamer magazine. I think I'll look around for an original copy once I arrive in Taiwan, provided a used Genesis is pretty cheap over there.
