[610-6033] Prime Selection Vol.1 (プライムセレクションVol.1) [Demo]
1835

Last year, I bought this obscure Japan only released demo disc for my own Clockwork Knight related reasons, but thought others may well enjoy it, too, and as there is no current publicly available rip of it (even looking on redumps wiki, it's listed as "missing" http://wiki.redump.org/index.php?title=Sega_Saturn_Japan_Missing_Games_List#Japan_Demos) , and it's VERY hard to come by (Took me almost a decade to find myself!), I thought I'd release my own rip of the disc.

The game contains 5 videos of upcoming games (Gakkou no Kwaidan, Riglord Saga, Shining Wisdom, Mahou Kishi Rayearth, World Advanced Daisenryaku: Koutetsu no Senpuu), and 1 playable game demo (Clockwork Knight 2), which has a good few differences to what is seen in the final version of the game.

General game information:
"Prime Selection Vol. 1" is a very hard to find, obscure Japanese exclusive Sega Saturn Compilation demo disc, published by Sega Enterprises, Ltd.

Released sometime in Mid-1995, it contains 5 video previews and a 1 level demo for the JP version of Clockwork Knight 2 with a build date of about 20 days before the final version, meaning some object layout differences etc~
The exact release date of this CD is not known apart from it's year, but file dates on the CD give us a clue. The file burn dates are all "1995.06.15 at 07:48 AM", so it was probably very soon after that date.

This would make sense, as the front cover/manual advertises Clockwork Knight 2's Japanese release date (1995.07.28), so assuming it was released around a month prior to this would put it about there. Sadly, as I have no information on how this disc was released or distributed, I can't give an exact date, but late June or VERY early July 1995 seems about right."

"Katchin' " enemies have Green pencils and not Red.
Egg gives a single coin instead of a bronze key.
"Pierron" enemies are in a formation of only 3 rather than 5, and are spaced out much further, making the 1-UP bonus via the egg impossible to do.
Another can toy is hiding in the background and jumps out at you.
Just before the pit of death after the first turn of the level, there is a "Katchin' " enemy. Very easy to fall onto from above.
After using the wind-up stairs to walk on the climbing frame, an extra "Katchin' " enemy is placed above the first "Tick" enemy, right before the floating platforms you can jump over to.
Some of the "Katchin' " enemies are closer to the edge than in the final,making getting hit easier.
There is an additional "Tick" enemy on the final yellow bar of the climbing frame.
Jumping off of the climbing frame there are only 4 pocket watches at first, but then rest on the way down are the same.
After the wind-up stairs, there is usually an egg with a bronze key, but this has been replaced with a "Katchin' " enemy.
After the first wind up platforms with the Invincibility hidden in the egg, there are usually a row of 5 "Pierron", but in this version there are only 3, making the 1-UP bonus via the tree impossible to do.
The "Katchin' " enemy underneath the second set of wind up platforms does not instantly die when the platforms are wound, but does die when the platforms fall back inwards.
The egg underneath the second set of wind up platforms gives you a bronze key instead of a silver key.
After using the second set of wind-up stairs to walk on the second climbing frame, "Katchin' " enemies are noticed to be closer to the edge again, making getting hit easier.
"Tick" enemy on second yellow bar of climbing frame.

4. Kid's Room 1 - Alernate Path (Via box on floating platforms)
==============
"Katchin' " enemies have Green pencils and not Red.
"Pierron" closer to doorway making it easier to accidentally get hit.

The game has been ripped using CloneCD, and so is a ".CCD" file. A ".CUE" file also was generated during the ripping process. Enjoy~

Excellent release. I've been looking for this one myself for many years. I own all Saturn cover discs and all Japanese Saturn Flash but could never find this one. Thanks!

I actually updated this in the last few weeks with a Redump compliant version, so anyone who would like that should download the latest upload. :)

Have done the same with the "Clockwork Knight: Pengin War" and "Clockwork Knight 2" prototypes on Hidden Palace, so yeah, enjoy~

Yep!
Sorry for the late response, btw. I didn't get a notification.
