Hate to break it to you, but your complete collection of Sega Genesis cartridges is no longer complete. Sorry, man. It's an easy fix, though -- all you need to do to reclaim completeness is to drop $40 on a copy of the just-released Star Odyssey, a new Genesis cartridge produced by Super Fighter Team. Yes, in the year 2011.

Star Odyssey is an unreleased English localization of Hot-B's Blue Almanac, an RPG in the vein of Sega's Phantasy Star series. The game was slated for a western release, but progress stalled somewhere along the way. The only existing prototype copy of the localization was found to be incomplete and glitch-ridden.

Super Fighter Team took this version of the game and cleaned it up, fixing bugs, translating dialog, and even rebalancing the game's difficulty for the newly minted cartridge release. Star Odyssey joins Super Fighter Team's previous Genesis cartridge releases Beggar Prince and Legend of Wukong, both RPGs originally released in Taiwan.

I played through and reviewed Super Fighter Team's localization of Beggar Prince back when it was first released, and found it to be one of the better RPGs for the platform -- it was no Phantasy Star IV, mind, but it beat the pants off of Sword of Vermilion. Super Fighter Team's catalog proves that it has a canny eye for quality games, and Star Odyssey should be another standout for fans of 16-bit RPGs.
