Neclos Fortress

3_de39668920cc7c530c8cb07abccd01ebNeclos Fortress (ネクロスの要塞, Necros no Yousai/Fortress of Necros) was another bonus pack-in product from Lotte in the late 80’s – this time, these were chocolate treats with a monochromatic mini-figure and cards.

Further packaging and collection images can be found here (also where the right photo is from), as well as at Green-Head.net.

Video Game

An RPG for the PC Engine came out in 1990, known in particular for its fast and flashy battle scenes.
