    TRIVIA
    Metal Flame Psy Buster was released on December 14, 1990 in Japan for 5900 Yen.

    There are a couple of notable differences between the American NES version of the game and the Japanese version. The game's title is completely different and shows Tony and the OMO III mech, whereas the Japanese version features the game's title over a blue background. The screen that follows, where Tony runs towards his mech has some added text that says "Let's do it mech!". Interestingly, although the game is credited to Sculptured Software, a development company originally based in Salt Lake City (Utah, USA), if was first released in December 1990 in Japan, and in march 1991 in the USA. Additionally, on his game design and art work page, Joe Hitchens (game artist at Sculptured Software in 1990 and Metal Flame's game designer) has some artwork showing Tony as seen in the American version's title. It is anyone's guess as to why these graphics were removed (or never included) from the Japanese version. Joe Hitchens also mentions a Game Boy version of Mech Metal which, as far as we can tell, was never released (it was announced in the Official 1990 World of Nintendo Buyers Guide for a 1990 release). Finally, an early game promotional flyer shows that Metal Mech Man & Machine was first announced under the name Mechanoids Man & Machine (which was also the name of the unreleased Game Boy game).
