GP World / Tooru-kun / Hyper Sports / Star Force retrospective: Salarymanifest destiny | Segaiden 16

Watch on Youtube

Youtube Video Description:

Sega winds down the cartridge format for SG-1000 in favor of a new media type, and this corner of the console library unfortunately wheezes to a half-hearted ending. Somehow, Sega even managed to completely squander Konami's brief show of support for the platform by turning in a pair of clumsy arcade conversions in the form of Shinnyuushain Tooru-kun (aka Mikie) Hyper Sports (a cousin to Track & Field). On the other hand, GP World does at least innovate a little bit in SG-1000's well-trodden racing lineup, and Tekhan's Star Force puts in a respectable showing, even if it's not quite up to the standards set by Hudson's Famicom/NES conversion. Footage in this episode was captured from an RGB-modded SG-1000 II (courtesy of @iFixRetro) and an @Analogue Mega Sg with SG-1000 cartridge adapter via DAC. Upscaled to 720p via xRGB Mini Framemeister and @Retro Tink 5X. Video Works is funded via Patreon ( — support the show and get access to every episode up to two weeks in advance of its YouTube debut!
