4 pages. The Game is listed as releasing by the end of 1995, having an undecided price, and being ?% complete. It mentions that, previously, only one screenshot of the game had been available. The first two pages are encircled by artwork and short biographies of all 8 country representatives. While the beginning of the body makes note of the 200 characters during battle scenes, but pivots to focus on the characters which act as a player's alter ego. The 100 vs 100 characters more in focus on the third page, which also covers other gameplay elements such as the special moves. The fourth page does the same for real-time map gameplay and castle gameplay. Boxed off is the story of Highland king Wein.
