DescriptionKidou Senshi Z-Gundam: Hot Scramble is the first known Mobile Suit Gundam game released on the NES. Mobile Suit Gundam is a popular anime T.V. series, which has been running since its first show (Mobile Suit Gundam) created in 1979, up until now, with the latest addition to the series being Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny. It introduced the mecha drama, contrary to super robot series.
The game includes both first-person shooting and side-scrolling elements of gameplay, the platform portions obviously inspired by the past year's hit, Thexder. It allows you to play as the Zeta Gundam, who can also transform into the wave-rider. The enemies consist of many different mobile suits from the show, including the Hizack, Messala, O, Gaplant and Psycho Gundam. Kidou Senshi Z-Gundam: Hot Scramble has been followed up by a continuing series of games covering many video game platforms.

Famicom Mini releasePrior to the Japanese release of Mobile Suit Gundam: Senshitachi no Kiseki (Mobile Suit Gundam: The Ace Pilot) on the GameCube in 2004, Bandai produced a limited edition Famicom Mini version of Hot Scramble. The Famicom Mini games are specially packaged Game Boy Advance re-releases of classic NES games. There were 10 titles so far, and this was the 11th title, given away via a drawing held at the GameCube title's official website.
Neil SedakaThe American singer-songwriter Neil Sedaka composed the music for the opening and ending themes of the anime, an example being the ending theme, "Hoshizora no Believe" ("Believe In The Starry Sky") which is derived from "Bad And Beautiful" on his album Steppin' Out. Nobuyuki Ohnogi arranged Sedaka's music for use in the game, hence the credit to Sedaka in the end credits.
RarityThis game was produced as a limited run of only 1000 carts making it one of the rarest games made for the Famicom. The cart alone can go for over 10000 yen!
