1001 Video GamesThe Mega Drive version of Gunstar Heroes appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
ExtrasThe U.S. version of the game came with one free Fruit Roll-Up.
ReferencesMost bosses of the game are in fact "borrowed" for famous movies, anime or video games. For instance, Colonel Red is Vega from Street Fighter II (aka "Bison" in US version), Pink and her two hunchmen are the Gladys gang from the anime Fushigi no Umi no Nadia (The secret of blue water), the Emperor is a clone of Darth Vader, and you'll also meet a copy of Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z...
About Pink, you'll also notice that the jewel she tries to steal is similar to the "blue water" jewel from Nadia.
