Release: Tron Ni Kobun PlayStation D21 Demo
Here's a fun little nugget for the weekend: a rare Tron Ni Kobun demo featuring the very elusive Kobun #41. Originally bundled with PlayStation D magazine issue 21, this demo contains two Kobun training mini games (Attack Training Courses A~D and Speed Training Course Rounds 1~3). Successfully completing both nabs you the Kobun #41 save data for use with the full game.
Aside from a couple different musical cues and sound effects, there aren't too many differences from the final retail version here. One really neat thing, though, is seeing #41's unique portrait. In the 17 years following the original game's release, it hasn't appeared *anywhere* else. I've yet to peek into the VRAM for any oddities lurking inside the demo, so who knows what could be in there. In any case, you're free to download it from a certain green button on the side of this page.
Thanks to HF for procuring the demo!
