Welcome back to The PC Engine Files! Today we are looking at After Burner II, a game which has every good reason to have been localized for North America (popular arcade franchise, great fun to play, entirely in English) and every good reason NOT to be (would’ve competed with Sega’s own release for Genesis, the TurboGrafx-16 sold poorly, they didn’t believe it would sell enough copies).

Still I have to imagine any number of TG-16 owners who had a HuCard converter and knowledge of the Japanese market would have readily imported this one because it beefs up the minuscule US library and has immense replay value.
