Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs
is a brawling game by Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs Team Saber Rider. It is based on the 1987 American animated series of the same name, which itself was based on the 1984 Japanese anime Star Musketeer Bismark.
It is licensed from both
World Events Productions, the creators of Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, and Studio Pierrot, the creators of Star Musketeer Bismark.
Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs will be published by JoshProd in 2018.
The game was originally announced for release on the
Nintendo 3DS on September 2, 2010 by a German studio named Firehazard.
March 21, 2014, the Firehazard team disbanded, and the remaining team, including designers Chris Strauß and Bernd Geiblinger, re-formed under the Team Saber Rider name.
After a successful
crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter, in 2015, the game was ported to other platforms including the Sega Dreamcast.
October 1, 2015, Watermelon announced via their newsletter that they would be publishing Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs. Team Saber Rider announced that the publisher was changed to JoshProd on August 21, 2017, and that they also helped finance the rest of the game's development.
