The MSX-version of Gradius-2 (a.k.a. Nemesis 2) is a spin-off story of the Gradius series, developed specifically for the MSX and later ported to X68000 and PSP under the title "Nemesis 90 Kai".

You may recall the Alien 8 MSX2 remake gaining very positive reactions from the MSX scene, not too long ago.

It's no secret within the MSX community that an MSX mouse in good condition is hard to find these days. Most of them are low-DPI devices that use the problematic ball-and-wheels mechanism, which doesn't work quite well after all these years.

There are some adapters for RS-232 and PS/2 mouses out there, but those are also rare to find and/or expensive.
