Mega Drive bootleg games in Russia

From Sega Retro

Monopoly MD RU box front.jpg

The first pirate games that came to Russia were regular pirates produced in factories in Asia. In 1998, the first translation of the game into Russian - Monopoly by Padis appeared. Since then, the production of pirated translations for Mega Drive has started.

New Game

Russian company New Game has been prolific in its manufacturing of bootleg Mega Drive catridges, producing software since the beginning of 2000s. Over time, the company has refreshed its packaging multiple times, offered both what appears to be English and Russian translations of games, and distribute entirely new games, usually source from homebrew ROMs on the internet.

New Game's activity is very difficult to document as it has re-released products multiple times, often with only very minor changes, and usually without any clues as to when the bootleg came to market. We have attempted to separate the company's produce by aesthetics:

Battletoads


Glorysun

Little is known about the translations of this company. So far, it's only known that they created their own Russian translation of Aerobiz Supersonic.

Shedevr

This group mainly produced translations for New Game.

MagicGame

Another game translation group considered by many to be the best translations. They later collaborated with New Game.

Kudos

They are known to have translated two games, Desert Strike (in 2002) and Cutthroat Island.

Pirates

In addition to these well-known translations, there are also translations without precise data on the authors.

Prototypes

In addition to selling bootleg copies of officially licensed Mega Drive games, Russia saw release of unfinished material, likely sourced from the internet with little in regard to quality control. Interestingly despite some games lacking basic features such as music, many have still been translated into Russian.
