Activision had originally contracted Japanese developer Home Data to produce a Sega Mega Drive version of the game, which they released in Japan as Dragon's Eye Plus: Shanghai III. However, Activision was not happy with this version of the game, and rather than releasing it overseas or improving it for a Western release, they commissioned a brand-new Mega Drive port out to an American freelance developer, Brian Rice, and released this new port in 1994. This Mega Drive version was only released in North America before seeing a European Virtual Console release.
