This game is known in Japan as "Sonic Wings".

Red Rabbit from "Rabio Lepus" (also known as "Rabbit Punch") makes a cameo appearance in this game. Just check out Mao Mao's ending and you'll see it.

In Kowful's and T.B.'s joint ending, you can see plenty of "Turbo Force" arcade machines.

The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to Japanese characters.
