Kero Kero Keroppi no Mahō no Kuni Densetsu (lost build of cancelled Famicom role-playing game; 1993)
Kero Kero Keroppi no Mahō no Kuni Densetsu (けろけろけろっぴの魔法の国伝説 Legend of the Magical Kingdom of Kero Kero Keroppi) is a cancelled 1993 Famicom role-playing game based on the Sanrio character Keroppi. The game was planned by Character Soft who is a video game publishing subsidiary of Sanrio.
The game is set in the Magical Kingdom. Keroppi is lost in a parallel universe, and his goal is to take down Razuri, who is scheming to conquer that kingdom. Keroppi's only means of attack is magic. He has to gain experience and remember lots of powerful magic.
In this game, the player is adventuring in many different places, many questions would be asked of them. If the player gets stuck in the game, they would also ask for hints. Keroppi would not have a single weapon, he would have to convert his enemies with magic in the battles.
The game was going to be released in December 1993 in Japan at 4,980 yen, but was cancelled for unknown reasons, most likely due to the new Super Famicom console that “killed” the Famicom market.
On December 2nd, 2017, a Japanese Twitter user a_a_bm posted a tweet that a prototype for the game exists.
