Trivia

3DO version

The game contains a lot of violence and even cannibalism, which was a taboo at that time. Main director Kenji Eno of Warp Inc. used a trick to get the game approved. He submitted the master to 3DO with a clean version of the game. When it was approved, he took it to the US to have it manufactured, but switched the discs and had it released as he had intended.

Sony controversy

Together with Acclaim, 100,000 orders were ordered from Sony for the PlayStation version. Sony however gave priority to other titles and told Warp Inc. only 40,000 copies would be made, which became a mere 28,000 units in the end. Main director Kenji Eno took revenge later at a Sony event where he gathered the members of press to announce that the company would be making games for the SEGA Saturn. Sony, hosting the event, was of course not pleased.
