F-1 Spirit (MSX classic)

Post by eggman1973 » Mon Jan 30, 2006 10:17 pm

Does anyone know if F-1 Spirit was ever ported to the Sega Saturn (in the same way Nemesis/Gradius I, II, and III were, on the Konami Classics Collection)?

The aforementioned compendium of MSX classics would be perfect if it only included F-1 Spirit too! And maybe also Metal Gear...

Any takers?

The Konami MSX collection only features MSX1 games. So there is no Metal Gear or Vampire Killer or F-1 Spirit etc...

It's still worth getting just for Penguin Adventure though.

Is this the Saturn one or the 3 volumes of MSX collection on the PSX?

They're exactly the same. The Saturn one has everything that's on the 3 PSX volumes but on one disc.

Ah, Then the PSX ones won't have it either...

D'oh! But F1-Spirit was an MSX1 game...

(I only ever had an MSX1, and I used to own F1-Spirit) Metal Gear was an MSX2 game though...

Looks like I'll have to get my fix via fMSX then..

Sorry, I was thinking of F1 Spirit 3D Special (an MSX2+ game). It's still not on the compilation though.

Yes, I'm sure I've heard of the MSX2+ version before.. But like you say, it ain't on the compilation anyways..

Good job I'm a huge fan of the Gradius/Nemesis series!

(particularly Nemesis 2)

But aside from the MSX Classics Collection discussed above, does anyone know of any retro release on the Saturn (or even PS1/2) that did feature F1-Spirit?

I know I'm being pretty optimistic, but hey, who thought back then we'd still be playing and discussing all these classics in this day and age??
