    1. What I said is still true, since I didn't say DQ did it first
    2. My point was that the western release of DQ was at a bad time

    Ehh Western release of DQ was in 1988 much after zelda and nintendo asked iwata , hori and other to improve the game for western release..but still failed, maybe as western have direct access to ultima and wizardy, a 'cute' version of both games would never got that traction.

    Also, another idea I had for a pop culture timeline was WI Active Enterprises made a full Cheetahmen game instead of Action 52?

    Well, there'd be a few changes needed to be made for this TL

    1. Full focus on Cheetahmen as a game.
    2. Longer development time. They were only given three months to make 52 games. Maybe give them a year with only a single game to make. Maybe with a 1992 release

    Also, they had plans for the Action Gamemaster, which could be turned into a potential CD add-on for the SNES in place of the Sony plans or Phillips CD-I, but that's a bit of a stretch of possibility.

    For the direction, I would go for a solid success as a late-cycle NES game that would give Active the leeway to get a comic or cartoon series going like they had planned and then maybe make the franchise Nintendo-exclusive (though the idea of making a Genesis port for Cheetahmen is also an option I'm exploring.)

    At best i could see Cheetamen being a lite TMNT game(the action platformer, not the beat em up) and maybe a minor 4chan meme in the future, anything else would be a massive wank, but if they become competent rather a scam, they could be a minor game studio

    A bit of a wank, yeah. As far as gameplay I was thinking each of the three Cheetahmen had a different playstyle (Hermes/Mercury (haven't figured out if I wanna go with Greek or Roman on the names) would be platformer, Ares/Mars would be beat-em-up and Apollo would be some form of shooter.) and I can see Cheetahmen going for about three games before the franchise is done game-wise. In other media, it'd depend on what was going on in the industries at the time, who would pick up Cheetahmen as a comic (if they don't release it independent) and what networks would pick up the cartoon, competition and the like. Vince Perri had a grand vision for Cheetahmen and while I can't see it being the biggest thing of the 90s, I can see people liking it at the time.

    Battletoads were popular as were nicely done and hard, and rare admit was a blatant copy of TMNT(that is why we make the crossover in MM, as was the perfect chance), so cheetahmen with good care and luck could pull it too, is possible...for a comic, i can imagine image comics or dark horse picking up.

    Oh God... Rob Liefeld's Cheetahmen...

    Also, I'm considering a possible Battletoads vs. Cheetahmen on the SNES, because how can you not?

    Now I'm just imagining the shade that Cheetahmen throw at the Turtles in comics and cartoons. Like how Ares might be the slowest of the team, but he's still faster than any turtle.

    William Fox, the man who broke the Edison Trust; Fox Films, his company that almost took over Loew’s/MGM in 1929 to become a superpower studio on the order of today’s Disney & perhaps WB/Paramount follow suit as planned—the Golden Age of Mega-Hollywood.

    Just an idea but it is intriguing.
