Even if the title screen says 1990, Steel Gunner was released in March 1991 in Japan.

The name of the police force is the Neo Arc PD (Neo = 'NEW' Arc = i.e. Newark, New Jersey). A clever play on words.

Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Namco Video Game Graffiti Vol.7 - VICL-8004) on 01/05/1991.
