    Enemy Zero (エネミー・ゼロ) is an adventure game for the Sega Saturn and PC. It is one of the few Saturn games to ship with four discs.

    History

    Development

    Enemy Zero was originally planned to be a PlayStation-exclusive game, however designer and founder of Warp, Kenji Eno took a strong dislike to Sony's manufacturing process, failing to prioritise copies of his previous game, D. Though Acclaim, D had amassed roughly 100,000 pre-orders, however Sony only produced 28,000 copies of the game in time for release.

    This friction led to one of the most interesting headlines of 1996, in which during a backroom conference at the 1996 PlayStation Expo promoting a game with strong public backing from Sony, a PlayStation logo at the end of an Enemy Zero morphed into a Sega Saturn one[11], with Eno proceeding to jump on a stuffed MuuMuu from the Sony-published PlayStation Jumping Flash!.

    Following this incident, all Warp-published games became Sega exclusives, starting with this game and continuing with both the Saturn and Dreamcast versions of Real Sound: Kaze no Regret and finally D-2 (the studio being closed shortly afterwards).
