Artwork will be done by Patrick Reinemann from Reinemann Illustrations and the soundtrack will come from Dale Schacker.

Ever since my childhood, Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs has been a part of my life. I have always wanted a video game based on the series. Finally, this wish seems to have a chance of becoming a reality. Along with millions of other fans since Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs hit our airwaves in the 80s, we at Firehazard Studio have all been in love with the powerful Star Sheriffs and there almighty Star ship Ramrod and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs the very first time on a gaming device such as the Nintendo 3DS.
