    M.U.S.H.A. last edited by Mento on 08/13/18 09:13AM View full history


    Musha Aleste: Full Metal Fighter Ellinor is a Genesis-exclusive entry in Compile's Aleste series of shoot 'em ups. It was renamed M.U.S.H.A. for its international release, which stands for Metallic Uniframe Super Hybrid Armor.

    M.U.S.H.A. was released in 1990 on the Sega Genesis, developed by Compile and published by Seismic in the United States and Toaplan in Japan. It was later released on the Wii's Virtual Console in 2008/09 by Naxat Soft (Japan) and Sega (everywhere else), which was also its European/Australian debut.

    M.U.S.H.A. features a ship that is capable of transforming into a mecha, piloted by Terri (Ellinor in the Japanese version), and can power up its weapons and acquire drone-like options by collecting power chips from fallen foes. While it failed to make an impression at launch due to a deluge of Genesis shoot 'em ups at the time, it eventually became a cult hit with genre fans and remains very popular today. M.U.S.H.A. is currently one of the most expensive and rare Sega Genesis games, selling at an average price of $70 to $200 depending on quality and completeness.
