Bank switchingThe Mega Drive / Genesis version of the game uses a 40 Megabit cartridge (5 Mb.). In order to surpass the usual 32 Megabit (4 Mb.) limit of the system it uses bank switching technology, never accessing whole the data in the cartridge at the same time. Older Mega Drive / Genesis emulators won't play this game.
