Taito Releases Saint Sword onto Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – June 27th, 1991

What do you do when someone else has a really popular title?  Why, you copy it as best you can.  That is apparently what Taito did in the early 90’s when they released Saint Sword for the Sega Genesis.  They followed the idea of Rastan as best they could but as with most copycats, they […]
