If this is authentic, this is a really exciting find, Robert! Not only it's the first known mention of North American releases of these games, but also even a press release on one of those. Also, "War Simulation"? Could that be Star Seed?

But, ugh, the auction has been deleted before I could save the images and description. It also had images of a Space Squash press release and of the cover. The description mentioned this being from CES 1995. I could only find a tiny thumbnail of the cover through Google image search.

Did anyone save all that?

Also, I am wondering what you guys think about the item. The cover looked pretty authentic to me, the spelling in the press release is horrible, though. :-) This article seems to back its authenticity: http://www.planetvb.com/modules/articles/?s013096001

I am entirely convinced that this is fully authentic. I also conclude that "War Simulation" was a working title for "Star Seed." The way that the English appears shows strong evidence as having come from someone fluent in Japanese but not so fluent in English. I can even guess what some of the original Japanese words would have been in the write-up for Proteus Zone before someone tried to translate it into English, as a result of having looked at so many Japanese texts so far.

In any case, I am the one who bought the auction, so as soon as everything arrives to me, I will try to make and post high quality scans of everything. I'm also going to try to create what I believe to be a "cleaner" English translation of what was probably the original Japanese text in the write-up for Proteus Zone.

I have yet to receive confirmation that the item has shipped, though, so I hope no troubles arise there.
