In The Hunt Retrospective by Gaming on Sony

Modern Zorker writes, "Back in 1996, you couldn’t swing a Jaguar controller in a video game store without knocking a dozen different varieties of space-themed shooters off the shelves (and pissing off the employees). One of those twelve space shooters would have invariably been a version of R-Type, a game so notorious for kicking players’ asses that retailers sold it in conjunction with butt pillows and hemorrhoid cream."

I have this for my Saturn! So difficult, but so fun.

Did the Saturn version make it Stateside? I remember seeing it, or at least seeing the box, at Electronics Boutique but some people say it never made it Stateside.

Can't say for sure. Mine is Japanese, though all necessary menus are English.
