According to the game's main designer/planner Takane Ohkubo in a 2013 ROM Cassette Disc in MELDAC liner notes, he was asked why he chose the game to be available on the Famicom console. He responded:

"It was mostly a business decision. We talked about developing it for the PC Engine too, but the only system we had the skills to develop a game for right away was the Famicom. We had some extremely talented people on our team. Our programmer Hiramatsu was a real wizard: he had once created a ROM Emulator from spare parts he bought at Akihabara."
