Here's an article comparing Super Castlevania IV and Magician Lord (an old NeoGeo/arcade platformer if you're unfamiliar) that I just found. It's in French though, and Yahoo! Babelfish didn't work for me. Well, you can look at the pictures and videos if nothing else. Razz

That's interesting. So it's more of a which-one-is-better sort of a deal and less let's-look-at-the-similarities?

From its inception, SNK planned an arcade version (See MVS) to promote the home system in arcades. Much to the surprise of SNK, the arcade version was a historic success while the AES version fizzled into a cult following.

Ah, thanks for the explanation. I always thought the Gameboy/GBC was the longest system to have games made for it at a regular rate (ie - excluding Genesis with its three 2000s titles).
