Does anyone know what the h**l this is? Attack on the deathstar for the X68000 computer (the computer which Castlevania originates from and not NES) It has both Lucasfilm (naturally) and Lucasarts name on it. Please let me know!!

Info here;

Echostation (http://www.echostation.com/esb/index_javascript.htm)

"1991 saw Star Wars for the Sharp X68000, a little known (to us Westerners) Japanese computer system. The game has numerous LucasArts and LucasFilm references and does look VERY professional. We have never seen the game run properly but it appears to be a "view from a cockpit" X-Wing type game."

There's also a tiny bit more info

here. (http://uvl.arteh.com/gameinfo/98012)


As for the machine itself, a google search brought this up.

"Powerful 16bit computer with the closest relative being the Commodore Amiga (they share the same processor, the motorola 68000 hence the name), there are some very good games on this computer but the system only came out in Japan. Just like the Amiga this computer was upgrade over its life cycle, 68020, 68030, 68040 etc."

There appear to be a number of x68000 EMU sites around, so someone with more patience than I might be able to... well, you know... ;)
