Mega-CD Special


Schon seit den 50er Jahren verwenden die Japaner die sogenannten Obis (Obigami = Papiergürtel) für Bücher, um seperat von der Bucheinbindung weitere Details zum Produkt im Laden besser präsentieren zu können. Schon bald danach verwendete man dort auch für LPīs, CDīs und DVDīs die im Rest der Welt "Spine Cards" genannten Papierkarten, die um den Rücken (Spine = Buchrücken/Rücken) des Produktes gelegt sind. Mit dem Erscheinen der ersten CD-basierten Konsolen wie der PC-Engine oder des Mega-CD hielten die bei Sammlern gern gesehenen Spine Cards auch ihren Einzug bei Videospielen. Zudem war das Mega-CD das erste System, bei dem die Spine Cards das erste Mal außerhalb Japans verwendet wurden.

Europäische Spine Cards
In den PAL/SECAM Regionen erhielten die meisten Spiele eine Spine Card, die es aufgrund der Hüllendesignumstellung in 3 Varianten gibt. (1x mit silbernem Mega-CD Schriftzug und farbigen Kasten oben und unten sowie 1x mit etwas neuerem Mega-CD Logo und farbigen Kasten oben und unten [diese beiden Varianten waren auch etwas breiter als die Spines der dritten Version] / 1x mit ganz neuem Mega-CD Schriftzug und den markanten, runden Punkten im Hintergrund).

Folgende Spiele erhielten keine Spine Card: Mortal Kombat und NBA Jam von Acclaim, Corpse Killer von Digital Pictures, Dungeon Explorer von Hudson, Lethal Enforcers von Konami (da das Spiel nur in der Gun Box und nicht einzeln verkauft wurde), SEGA Classics Arcade Collection von SEGA (da diese nur als Pack-In und nicht einzeln erschien), World Cup USA 94 von U.S. Gold sowie alle Releases von Sony/Psygnosis (ESPN Baseball Tonight, Flink, Mickey Mania, Microcosm New Cover Version, Novastorm und Sensible Soccer).
Desweiteren erhielten natürlich alle Spiele, die in der großen US-Style Box oder als "Double Pack" erschienen keine Spine Card (Chuck Rock, Chuck Rock UK Blue Stripe Version, Cobra Command / Sol-Feace Double Pack, Ground Zero Texas, Hook, Hook UK Blue Stripe Version, Make my Video: Kriss Kross, Make my Video: Kriss Kross UK Blue Stripe Version, Make my Video: Power Factory featuring C&C Music Factory, Make my Video: Power Factory featuring C&C Music Factory UK Blue Stripe Version, Microcosm, Puggsy, Sewer Shark, Sewer Shark BBFC PG on CD Version, Sol-Feace / Cobra Command Double Pack).

Japanische Spine Cards
In Japan gab es 2 Varianten, dieses Mal aber erhielten alle Spiele (mit Ausnahme von Dragonīs Lair in der Pappverpackung, Lethal Enforcers in der Gun Box und der Wondermega Collection von JVC) eine Spine Card. (1x mit altem Mega Drive/Mega-CD Logo / 1x zusätzlich mit neuem Mega-CD Logo und gelber Infobox wie bei den SEGA Saturn Games [die Breite der Spines richtet sich in Japan danach, ob das Spiel in einer Single- oder Double-CD Hülle geliefert wurde, während es in Europa ja nur die Doppel-CD Hüllen bei den standardmäßigen Releases gab).
