Ecco the Dolphin MD FR Leaflet.pdf
From Sega Retro
I want to share my memories about this... In this photo you can see the PT version of this game and as you can see, it has that sticker from the campaign Eu salvei um golfinho (I Saved a Dolphin... the quality of the photo is not the best, but if you look carefully you can see the logos of the Portuguese environmental organization Quercus (at your left) and Europe Conservation (at your right) in that sticker)... In 1993 one of my childhood friends bought one of these copies... as you Folks know the PT games were in fact EU/UK versions with just the "Garantia Sega Portugal" sticker to differenciate it... yes I've seen a multilingual version of this Leaflet/Booklet ... and as tradition in Portugal , a PT version of this leaflet exists... you can also see this here at guardiana.net (a French videogame database)... --Asagoth (talk) 06:12, 26 April 2018 (CDT)
Ecco the Dolphin Limited Edition Boxed Set
About the Limited edition boxed set ... Every website in the net mentions a Sega Force (UK) article which says that this was to help a dolphin named Ecco from the London aquarium ... well there's not such article in sega force magazine... in the adoption certificate one explicitly reads Moray Firth, in Scotland ... this same marketing strategy was used in France (kids... Ecco is real... he exists... he lives in the Mediterranean Sea... buy our game and help him)... well the London Aquarium opened only in 1997 according to wikipedia... and the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society runs two visitor centres in the Moray Firth region, most precisely at Spey Bay and North Kessock, so I think the partnership with the London Aquarium is a rumour...--Asagoth (talk) 16:02, 26 April 2018 (CDT)
My memories were wrong...
As the fault is mine I want to demystify this ... last week I encountered my childhood friend (the guy who bought this version of Ecco the Dolphin)... and he assured me this leaflet was in French... there's not a multilingual nor a Portuguese Version of this leaflet (at the time when we were students I opted for the French Language by my sister's influence while he opted for English ... so he reminded me of an episode that happened in those days... as I was studying French he asked me if I could translate what was said in the leaflet (we were stupid kids back then... we thought the leaflet was some kind of guide with clues or something, but it was not the case)... my French was very basic ... so it did not helped... so the bad news are... there's not a multilingual nor a Portuguese version of this leaflet... the good news... we already have the leaflet :)... my sincerest apologies to you all guys ... my memories about this were wrong...--Asagoth (talk) 06:04, 1 May 2019 (EDT)
