Trivia / Fantasy Zone

  • Direct-to-Video: All of the games (except the first) were released directly to consoles.
  • Fan Nickname: Fantasy Zone II DX for the Sega Ages port of Fantasy Zone II, so as to differentiate it from the original Master System version.
  • Market-Based Title: Fantasy Zone Gear was localized as simply Fantasy Zone in North America and Europe, but only on the cover and cartridge, as the title screen still uses the Japanese title.
  • No Export for You: Super Fantasy Zone was (originally) not released in North America.
    • Fantasy Zone II DX had this for a while, which was only included in the final Sega Ages collection until it came to 3DS in 2015.

    • One joke ending in the fan-made Streets of Rage Remake has Opa-Opa make a cameo, and features music from Super Fantasy Zone.
  • Vaporware: A TurboGrafx-CD game developed by NEC Avenue called Space Fantasy Zone which had Space Harrier-style gameplay mixed with the setting from Fantasy Zone, further bridging the gap between both franchises. Legal disputes with SEGA resulted in the game's cancellation. A prototype ISO of the game can be found online.
