In those days had Compile used some kind of cross development tool between MSX2 and Sega SMS ?
Is Randar the official mascot of Compile?
Why Blaster Burn never was released as a full featured game?
Does Mr Niitani know the actual MSX scene, and the modern technics used on new games, like Pointless Fighting ?

Pac Fujishima? You have contact with him?

He's very active in twitter, but mostly in japanese. This is one of the few times I've seen him writing in english about MSX stuff (see comments below):

- Are there any interesting cheats or hidden features for MSX Compile games that are unknown
- What is his all time favorite Compile game
- Was it ever the intent to have the girl in Gorby's pipeline sign messages or was she always only intended to encourage you on?
- Puyo Puyo has a mission mode on MSX. It looks like a logical fit to have a create level mode for it but there isn't. Wasn't level creation popular in Japan back in the day?
- How did the dynamics work with other companies regarding showcasing their software on the Disc Stations? Was it hard to convince them or high willingness to work together?
- Games with an open ended story line like Aleste 2 and Golvellius: was there already an outline story for a possible follow up game?
- Is there a way to change the music during gameplay in Columns, since there are more musics in the soundtest
- What is the story behind level 0 in Aleste 1

I will do the text-interview in a few days. There's still some time left to post more questions. Thanks for the contributions so far. Smile

Update: I'm in Tokyo, Japan now. I won't be doing the text-interview after all. In fact, I will meet Niitani-san in person! Smile The interview will still be published in text form, however. If there's still some questions left that you want me to ask him, now is the last chance.

Can you ask him who to contact if I want to remake a compile game for mobile phones?

As I understand it, Sega and D4 Enterprise owns all Compile properties now.
