Official description

Returning from three centuries of intergalactic missions, MCS-920 is surprised by an alien-infested planet. Whatever few lifeforms survived were driven underground or transformed into battling bionic mutants. You must escape the tentacles of these mutants, seek out and destroy alien ships, then overpower grotesque alien guards to steal their fiendish and bizarre weapons. From barren landscapes and colorful coral reefs to abandoned and frozen cities, you will yet come face to face with the alien tyrant in each world!

Editor note

It is definitely known that Color Dreams published Metal Fighter in the US. Sachen published it in Asia.

This also may have been one of the few games that Sachen actually published themselves in the USA. They made 72-pin NES carts in NTSC format but there is no definitive proof that they actually published them where NTSC NES consoles were standard. This game is thought to be more likely because Thin Chen Enterprise filed a US patent for it. Also, Thin Chen Enterprise Company, Ltd (Sachen?) registered a US copyright (TX-2-809-221 ) 1990-02-01 for "Metal Fight" and recorded that the work was published on 1989-08-05 (the Japanese publishing date)
