Interesting news. A 1999 post in the Baboo MSX forum, a scan posted to the Playstation game forum and a twitter tweet reveal there was an MSX game based on the scifi novel called Blue Knight Berserga back in 1985. It is VERY similar to The Iron Gauntz. The programmer/designer's name Masatoshi Kondoh is same as the one from the Iron Gauntz's credit. The scan says the game is right now not planned to go public, and Dual Magazine #12 that is the source of the scan was its last issue so there was no followup. Could it be the Iron Gauntz protoype? There indeed are differences between this game and the Iron Gauntz, like it having 30 levels instead of the maze and that you should not completely destroy the enemy but must weaken and interrogate it.
Blue Knight Berserga is the spinoff novel based on Armored Trooper Votoms anime and is quite famous among the robot anime fans.

Excellent research work! Smile I don't think I would've made the Iron Gauntz and Berserga connection on my own. I assume that Berserga fans don't know about the TIG connection either.
