Michael Jackson's Moonwalker/History

From Sega Retro

Back to: Michael Jackson's Moonwalker.


Released in the early days of the Sega Mega Drive, Moonwalker was one of Sega’s flagship titles (particularly in North America), with Jackson's persona being used alongside other celebrities like Joe Montana in an effort to put a dent in sales of Nintendo products.

In North America, the Sega Master System version was released alongside the Sega Master System II. In the United Kingdom, it was that system’s pack-in game upon release, and did not become a standalone product until six months later.[1]
