Technically - Ironclad is a prototype. The game was only officially released in Japan as a CD game then on the Wii Virtual Console where hackers then extracted the data then burned ROM chips so they could be played in cartridge form on actual arcade hardware - Galloping Ghost Arcade unveiled the game and right now I have the house high.

Is it a prototype or a Neo Geo CD exclusive that was officially released only in Japan? As mentioned back in my earlier post, my online research was showing it as a Japan-only game for the NG CD, that never got an official AES or MVS release. But again, I'm unfamiliar with the game and only going off what I read online.
