Burning Rangers was Sonic Team's final Saturn title and is pretty fun. The game itself is pretty rare, especially outside of Japan, due to the game being released near the end of the Saturn's lifespan.

To do:
Complete the webpage restoration and find any unused content. Also, a prototype from December 1997 was found very recently, so document it as soon as it get's released


Miscellaneous tidbits that are interesting enough to point out here.

Hidden Web Pages

File: Burning Rangers - Hidden HTML pages.rar (849 KB) (info)

Present in the EXTRA folder of the US disc are a number of .WAV files. Extracting these from the disc and viewing them in a hex editor reveals dozens of webpages and images stuffed in-between audio samples. Many of these originate from Sega of Japan's BBS, Planet Cafe, and include posts from these threads. However, there is also fan mail with requests to the developers and a couple of internal pages.

The above file also contains restorations of some of the pages, due to the image links being damaged or misdirected in the original files. Furthermore, most of these pages are viewed with Shift-JIS encoding, so Japanese fonts will need to be supported.
