Game was played on a Japanese Tatsujin cartidge. The game is exactly the same and since I had my region switch on the Genesis set to NA you can see the title screen actually says Truxton.

If I changed my region switch to Japan it'd say Tatsujin. It's one of two games that I know of that actually do that since they used the exact board and had the console region determine what displays on the title screen. The game is the same no matter which way you play it.

The game is also great for testing region mod switches as it displays it immediately showing you if your soldering was good or not.

And I really wish this page didn't repeat the last command if you use back and forward commands in the browser so I'd stop double posting all the time.

And loud audio warning on the youtube link, because when you play Truxton, you turn the surround sound up.

I've never heard of region mods before on the Genesis.

It's actually really easy. A couple of wires and a dual switch is all you need. Adding support for PAL is a bit more effort and I haven't bothered with that as I don't have anything it'd use.

Even overclocking the Genesis, while a bit more involved, wasn't too difficult to setup.

Very nice. This is the only Mega Drive Toaplan game I don't have. The game automatically detects the console region. Tatsujin becomes Truxton, Daisenpuu becomes Twin Hawk etc.

Anyway I'm voting yes
