Because of the long development time, Metal Slader Glory was released shortly before the Super Famicom (the Super NES outside of Japan) went on sale. As a result, only about ten thousand copies of the game were produced. It is believed that this, along with the fact that the game was one of the costliest games to produce as well as serious overspending on advertising, was what would lead to HAL Laboratory, Inc. filing for bankruptcy and eventually being purchased by Nintendo.
