The Japanese title translates as "A Christmas Tale". It was advertised as the first volume in a planned trilogy called Anearth Fantasy Stories, and should have been released in late 1994. Instead, it was often postponed and ended up as the very last Hudson game published on the PC Engine in Japan (December 1995). Logically, it never got a sequel, although it was eventually ported to the Saturn in March 1997 (the subtitle "Seiya Monogatari" was dropped in the process and replaced by a simpler "The First Volume"). At the same time, the Saturn conversion was novelized by Media Works under the name Avatark no Maken.
