Rastan Saga is a 1987 sidescrolling action game originally developed by Taito for the arcades; it was ported to the Master System in 1989 as Rastan, since there was no Japanese release. A Game Gear version of the port followed in 1991, which was released in Japan (Japan-only, even), so the Rastan Saga (ラスタン・サーガ) name was used.

The game was followed by Rastan Saga II for the Mega Drive, a name used even for its US release.
