A Sega Master System video game based on the series was made, and translated for the Europe, North America and Oceania markets as Alex Kidd in High-Tech World, with the main character replaced with Alex Kidd and other characters and parts of the game slightly edited to fit the change from a female to a male protagonist; whereas the goal of Anmitsu Hime is to reach a cake shop in time before it closes, the localized version changes this to a game center.
