The 3D Adventures of Sailor Moon
A totally bogus journey to a radically tubular time!
Once upon a time, when Chibiusa was only "Rini" and Kousagi hadn't even been born yet, an alternate dimension played home to a very much alive Queen Beryl.

The year was 1997. Sailor Moon was just about to air on Cartoon Network, after two years on various syndicated networks across North America. In celebration of her new success, licensing for use of the series' famous stars was given over briefly to a company known as 3VR. The result was a guilty pleasure known as "The 3D Adventures of Sailor Moon".

Aimed at an audience aged 6 years and older, the game features many tie-ins to the Americanized version. The game was on a white CD-ROM with Sailor Moon imitating her famous "And that means you!" pose, as a Wonderful World of DiC logo covers her elbow.

The game is compatible with Windows 95/98 and requires a Pentium 90 or above processor, double-speed CD-ROM drive and no less than 16 MB of RAM.

On my Windows 7 PC, I set my display to 16 colors via the control panel, then on my CD-ROM, I click the right mouse button over the file marked "opgame.exe" and click on properties. From there, I set it to "Run as Administrator" set display to 640, click apply and then double click to play the game. On Windows XP I only had to set the colors to 16, but with each new version of Windows it's a new hoop to jump through. The game auto displays a blue "Do You Want to Play Sailor Moon" box on Windows 95 and 98/98 Plus! And on NT, 2000 and 98 SE.

As of 11/20/2017 I haven't figured out how to play on Windows 10.

Before we continue, I just want to point out that this game came out when DiC had the rights to Sailor Moon. As such, a ton of names were changed for no reason other than they didn't think anime fans could handle Japanese names. Did you hear that? Yeah. That's the Dragonball Z fans laughing at us, since at the time, DBZ came on at the same time as Sailor Moon, and only a handful of their names were changed. Now the new Viz Media DVDs fix all of this and restored the original Japanese names, but for those needing a refresher course, here are the names used in this game:

Usagi Tsukino
Ami Mizuno
Rei Hino
Makoto "Mako" Kino
Minako "Mina" Aino
Mamoru Chiba
Chibiusa/Chibi-Usa Tsukino
Queen Metallia and the Dark Kingdom
Sailor Senshi/Guardians/Soldiers
Moon Stick
Legendary Silver Crystal
Moon Prism Power Make Up
Mercury/Mars/Jupiter/Venus Power Make Up
Shabon Spray/Bubble Spray
Fire Soul
Akuryo Taisan

Silver Millennium
Sailor Chibi Moon

Serena (Tsukino only used on merchandise.)
Amy Anderson
Raye Hino
Darien (Shields used as a last name on merch.)
Rini (Tsukino on merch only.)
Negaverse and Negaforce
Sailor Scouts (Soldiers used in last 18 episodes)
Crescent Moon Wand
Imperium/Imperial Silver Crystal
Moon Prism Power
Mercury/Mars/Jupiter/Venus Power
Mercury Bubbles Blast
Mars Fire Ignite
Mars Fireballs Charge
Jupiter Thunder Crash
Venus Crescent Beam Smash
Luna Ball/Luna Sphere
Moon Tiara Magic
Moon Healing Activation
Transformational Items
Moon Kingdom
Sailor Rini (on merchandise) Sailor Mini Moon

This game came out before DiC obtained the rights to the final 18 episodes of Sailor Moon R and way before they got the rights to edit the three movies. Outside of the movies, DiC never got the rights to edit and distribute Sailor Moon S, SuperS or Sailor StarS, though rumors suggest they did have a test edit for the first 13 episodes of Sailor Moon S. Cloverway debuted their edit of S and SuperS in 1999. DiC routinely abused their merchandise rights to Sailor Moon, often using images from S, SuperS and Sailor StarS on calendars, trading cards and many other forms of merchandise, though they did not have the right to do so from Toei Animation. As such, get ready for some unauthorized pictures they let slip right into this game!

Let's borrow Chibiusa's – oh wait, this was back when DiC had the rights, ahem - Rini's Time Key, and travel back to this period in time. I'll not only give you a review of the game, I'll also show you snapshots, videos, and I'll tell you how to beat the game in under 10 minutes!

Okay Kousagi-chan! Let's GO!

Amazon usually has a few copies here and there. Anyway if you have an older PC, you will the be greeted by a little box:
Click yes.

Remember, use my tips from the first box if you have Windows 7.

The game begins with the 3VR logo, and a rainbow, introducing Sailor Moon to you. This is followed by a music video, hosted by Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Moon.

The video features the five Inner Guardians – oh sorry, "Scouts" in 3D graphics, dancing to the Sailor Moon theme song.

During the video, we are greeted by a ghostly image of Queen Beryl, a shadowy Tuxedo Mask, and a fat Luna dancing with Artemis, who is wearing makeup.
If you know the tune then why not sing along! Yeah!

Just for you, I ripped out two different Dream Mirrors. The pink Dream Mirror has the DiC/Cloverway lyrics North American fans remember. The Golden Dream Mirror has the original Japanese lyrics. I'll just return these to Sailor Moon and Sailor Mini Moon when you're done, okay? No worries!
The DiC version was written by Andy Heyward, former head of DiC.
The original was written by Naoko Takeuchi, creator of Sailormoon.

In Japanese episode 46, a set of extended lyrics was added, as Princess Serenity is thinking of Ami, Rei, Makoto and Minako, just before their spirits come to help her. Here are the extra lyrics:
Admit it. You were just singing this.

After the video, a voiceover says

"Oh No. Queen Beryl has captured the Sailor Scouts transformational items!"
You are then transported to the play area:
Clicking on the blue moon book transports you to the pre-story. This is where you are told all about your mission.....

In a not too far away dimension, evil Queen Beryl Lavishes over her newly stolen possessions, for now she has the transformational pens and the moon wand belonging to Sailor Moon and her squad of teenage fighters, known as the Sailor Scouts. The once protectors of the universe are now unable to ward off the evil powers of the Negaverse, what is the world to do? Evil Queen Beryl had secretly hidden these transformational items in different dimensional Sailor rooms, and it is your duty as a Sailor Scout in training to help the Sailors thwart off Queen Beryl's evil plans to drain the Earth of it's precious life-forces. Fight for all that is right and triumph over all evils, and that means you!

Good Luck!

You are a Sailor Scout in training. So you technically can imagine you are Rini, maybe an Amazoness Quartet, or your own made up Scout. Neat, right? In any case, you exist in an alternate universe in which Queen Beryl never died, Malachite is still alive and Rini is already here.

At any time throughout the game, if you need help, the right-bottom of the screen features Luna, Artemis or Luna-P. Clicking on them produces a voiceover guide, informing you of your instructions.

NONE of the voice cast appears in this game. Instead we have one light voiced woman, whose job it is to act as all of the Sailor Scouts, plus Luna, Rini and Queen Beryl, and one dude who voices Darien and Artemis.

To beat the game, you have to play through the areas, to get the wands back. The game calls them "transformational items" but one of the five items is the Crescent Wand, which Sailor Moon does not transform with.

To beat the game, follow what I did below. First, double-click on the puzzle room.

Puzzle Room
You'll note that with each trip to one of the rooms, a loading screen featuring a twirling Sailor Moon will greet you. On either side of the screen will be a Sailormoon character. Here is the Puzzle Room's Loading Screen. Each time you play the game, the puzzles will vary. There are several puzzles in three different sizes.
The Puzzles.
To find Sailor Mercury's pen, just solve three of the easy ones.
Solving the puzzles is pretty easy, just click and drag the boxes. It can be a little challenging at times, since Sailor Moon is always right behind you.
Easy Mode Solving
Medium Mode Solving
Hard Mode Solving
Some of the puzzles feature pictures that were either Japanese promotion only, or from moments in the anime that were cut out! My favorite is a picture of a Blue Eyed Rini!
Here are pics from ALL of the puzzles that you could get. Remember, each time you put the CD-ROM in your disk drive, you could get one of two different sets of puzzles at random. You will get 6 puzzles for each difficulty, and the variety changes each time.

Upon entry, you'll be in a cheesy 1990's like lab. Behind you is the exit, to one side is a spinning star that leads you to Lita's fact sheet. The other side has a spinning heart.

But the main screen features all five Inner Senshi, Rini and Darien flashing quickly. I managed to capture Rini's screen. BE WARNED the following might not be suitable for all audiences.

I also got shots for each of the others too.
Sailor Moon, Darien, Amy, Raye, Lita
What? No Mina??? Moving on...

A double click of the mouse will lead you to Sailor Moon's fact sheet. Below are screen shots for each of the DiC fact sheets.

Be aware that these sheets are NOT accurate.

Sailor Mars
Sailor Jupiter
Sailor Venus
Tuxedo Mask
They really put an emphasis on reading, didn't they? But then again, this was the era of the semi-educational "Sailor Says" segments. Ah DiC. Nobody misses you.

To go along with this, I typed out verbatim what the voiceover tells you about each Senshi.

No, really. This is REALLY what's said.
Tuxedo Mask, Rini, Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Venus

To get Sailor Jupiter's pen back, go through Tuxedo Mask's profile, and then hit the arrow button facing left two times, then click the arrow facing right two times.
Before you leave, you might want to check out each profile's galleries!
Check out some awesome shots I got!

There are several shots hidden with the profiles that were edited out of the DiC series!

Here's one cut from the first half of season one:
Here are a few that were taken out of the first original beginnings from Sailormoon and Sailormoon R:

Rini's section features only two pics from Sailormoon R, and a TON of shots from the Sailormoon R movie~ about 3 years BEFORE it was dubbed! However, her gallery is also shared by Luna and Artemis. LAME! Why not give each one their OWN spot, instead of this?

Anyway, here are the shots in Rini's gallery:

You probably already noticed that some of the pics are cheaply redrawn versions of already well known episodes and events. Look for this as we move along through the rest of the game. Some of these same re-drawn images even appear later on the covers of some of the DVDs! But then there are some where the drawing style is highly flawed.
Next, it's time for some super Sailor "Make UP!!" fun, as we mosey on to the Moon Fashion Salon

You may have noticed that Rini is missing. There's a reason, and we'll get to that below in the cut content section. And did you catch how super skinny they are? That's not healthy, EAT SOMETHING! Anyway, to get Sailor Venus's pen back, double click on the Venus icon, then click on Sailor Venus. Once there, click the three bottom film strips, the third one you click on will chime, letting you know that you found her pen! Before you leave, let's explore some of the fashions you can use with the six Senshi. Some of these fashions are dorky "Mom and Dad" wear, and SOME of them are directed at the ADULTS who still play this game!
Here are some goodies I caught for ya:
Serena wearing a 1902 style dress, with country bumpkin duds aside her.
Darien going on safari... or fishing, you pick. GEEZ this screams "Daddy"...

Before we move on, lemme point out that this next one WILL offend all we women out there…
Sailor Mercury.... fast food clerk and 2 shakes from the ol' barefoot and pregnant routine.

That's right girlies! We want you to be stupid, slang speakin' bubble-gum chompin' idjits who troll the malls and then spend their free time at home doin' what the men folk say. YAY!! Not.

Okay, back to the rest of the shots!
Sailor Mars... little China girl? Wait... she's JAPANESE!!
Darien, Kung Fu star?
Rollerblading Sailor Mercury?

Tuxedo Jupiter?
UH-OH what will Serena say about this???

The next few shots were put in for GROWN-UPS. This sounds silly, considering it's for ages 6+, but once you see these shots, you'll understand my unusual disclaimer.
Serena in um... clown's showgirl attire?
Sailor Mercury after one wild night at the office!
Raye being... really frilly... *.*
Mina looking... well... you decide!

Well, we all KNEW she's the kinky one...
Of course there are also the transformed costumes too! Well, for the most part anyway...
Here are each of the shots:

Sailor Mercury? HEY!! That's not EVEN close to her costume, YOU COP OUTS!!!
Sailor Venus with pink shoes?
Tuxedo skinny boy Mask.... NO CAPES!!
Yeah, they gave up trying at 3VR didn't they. Moving on... 9_9

Your next assignment is to visit the Moon Castle TV Show Palace, which bears a baby like resemblance to the Silver Millennium’s palace.

Go figure, eh?
Moon Castle TV Show Palace
Loading Screen
TRIVIA TIME!! When the movie plays just before it says "Now Loading" look at the TV…

The TV screen says "SAILOR MOON Jupiter and Venus Arrive" which is from an ACTUAL DiC tape that came out in 1997!
Sailor Moon: Jupiter And Venus Arrive [VHS]
They released about five or six tapes, each with two out of place episodes, and this is the opening for Sailor Moon: Jupiter and Venus Arrive! Nothing like a little shameless product placement in a children's game, right?

In this room, you are able to watch short Sailormoon themed vignettes, set to dramatic and/or Olympic Games style music. The clips feature different moments from various episodes. The first clip you see is a musical adaptation of the cut-to-shreds DiC season one and two opener.
There's a video for Mercury, Mars, Venus and Jupiter, one for Serena's klutziness, one for Tuxedo Mask, one about Serena and Darien's love, and one about the Sailor Scouts as a team. Oh yeah, did anyone else besides me catch that in both the DiC Sailormoon opening and in the first opening to original Sailormoon R, Usagi/Serena is running around past a shot of Vincent Van Goh's Starry Starry Night painting?
To get Sailor Mars's pen back, simply hit the left arrow once on the TV, then hit the right arrow next to it. That's it really. But before you go, here are some more facts about this room!

There are 8 screens that will frame your video choice at random.
I know I know, it's Minami/Jordan from the babysitting episode in Sailor Moon R, but let me dream a little. Mamoru didn't get much screen time with Chibi Chibi.
Image result for Endymion Chibi ChibiRelated image
Seriously, this is like all we got. Let me live a little.

The first video only plays when you first enter the room. To see it again after you made another selection, exit the room, and then come back. Here are the 8 screens:
Serena and Darien
Blue Eyed Rini and Amy holding a Happy Birthday cake
Sailor Mars and Sailor Jupiter ready for combat
Sailor Jupiter with a pink center charm posing with Sailor Venus
Raye and Mina on a picnic
Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask
Sailor Mars relaxing while Sailor Venus stands
Sailor Venus and Sailor Mercury sitting
Some of the clips will feature out of place moments, like during Serena and Darien's piece, there's a shot of Luna giving Serena a "present".
And here's one DiC actually CUT from an episode!
Serena falls on the cats.
And here's a near decent shot of Tuxedo Mask:
Before you get ready for the final area, I want you to click on the yellow star on the center of the play area. You'll need a musical warm-up, because you will ACTUALLY get to see combat in the last area! But first, click that star, won't you?

The star leads you to the Sing Along room! On each side are Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask holding microphones where their weapons should have been.

The next two screenshots feature clips from the first music video you saw, hosted by Rini's parents.
Queen Beryl
Fat Luna and Feminine Artemis
OKAY! Now you are ready for an ACTUAL BATTLE! When you return to the play area, click on the Crystal Tokyo castle to enter the battle room.

Battle Room
Loading Screen
This battle only appears easy... IF you have a Pentium 2 processor. For those of us with processors that are Pentium 3 and above, this is a challenge. I have a dual core processor on my Windows 7 and this made all of the enemies shoot past me at the speed of light.

Each time you enter, your playfield and enemy targets will be different. At any time, you could either land in a blood soaked crater, or be transported to a blue and lavender field on the Moon. Your opponents will either be crystals or blobbies based on one of season one's villains. The two will mix each time.
Crystals over a blood soaked crater
Blobbies on the Moon
As the non-Darien voiceover tells you, you need to aim at the center of the targets, and right-click to shoot. This is hard to do, since they move around so @#$% fast! You need to hit ALL of them as quickly as possible, so your ending score will be over One Million Points! (Dr. Evil would be proud)

Also, you must hit each one directly in the center, or it doesn't count as a hit.

If you beat them all, you will then face off with THE QUEEN BERYL... box.
Beryl in a box!
Yep. Your BIG boss is trapped in a dinky tiny little box, along with Malachite and a few baddies of the day. Just three clicks and Sailor Moon gets her wand back.

Hey! If you're playing as a "Sailor Scout in training" aaaand you just battled with a Moon Wand, even though Sailor Moon's wand was missing... then does that mean you've been playing as Rini this whole time? Maybe. Maybe not. Use your imagination!

When you exit the battle room, you will be congratulated for beating the game. Click on the yellow star again, and THIS time you will see a congrats message, followed by an animation of Sailor Moon doing a light attack, followed by your usual "Now Loading" message.
After a short time, your prize is..... you can now revisit all of the five rooms and play as much as you like, until you get bored and click the quit button. You will now be in a totally 3D environment, and each time you enter a play room, and then exit back to the new area, the weather changes! It could be fall over mountains, morning and peaceful, sunny, or starlit, just to name a few:
The Movie Palace at daytime
The Movie Palace at night
The Moon Kingdom and Crystal Tokyo against the mountains
The battle area and Puzzle room in the mountains

And check this out! On the floor of this new area, are signs for Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Mars, Moon and ... Neptune???
See? It's the Sign of Neptune, was she a planned character for the game?

What? No Negaverse video? No Rini? Oh well, it seems they did plan something though. Something sinister. Let's move onto… CUT CONTENT!!

The LOST 3D Adventures of Sailor Moon?

November 19, 2017 Codename Sailor Earth (that's me) did a live "Let's Play" video for The 3D Adventures of Sailor Moon for the Moon Sisters Facebook page. At the end of the video, cut content was revealed for the game. Below is what we did not get from the first officially licensed Sailor Moon game to hit North America.

Keep in mind, when the game came out in 1997, DiC only had the rights to the first two seasons of Sailor Moon. They did not have the rights to the final 18 episodes of R until later that year, and they did not have the rights to the movies yet, plus they never officially obtained the rights to S, SuperS or Sailor StarS, so be prepared for some spoiler art. Oops!

Also, Kousagi wouldn't debut in the Materials Collection art book until 1999 in Parallel Sailor Moon while this game was out in early 1997. So I am digging these blue eyed shots of Chibiusa.

In case you missed it earlier, here's what you need to remember for beating the game:
For as schlocky as it sounds, it's actually a really fun game! Yes, even with the large amount of facts that they got WRONG and the fact that this technically counts as shovelware, you really can't help but like it, at least as a guilty pleasure.

And let me address something for those born after 1991.

Yes, it is a shame that as of this writing, we only have this, a patch for an old Colorforms PC game and Sailor Moon Drops as the only officially licensed Sailor Moon games in North America, a bigger shame that all we have are puzzle/kiddie games, while Italy got a platformer on Nintendo DS and Japan had fighting games for the series on multiple consoles, but let me be clear, we were so starving in the 90's for anything Sailor Moon that this, even this, was considered to be gold.

Sailor Moon merchandise has always been a bit scarce, but in the 90's? It was practically non existent, despite being the top show on Toonami on Cartoon Network, the top show aimed at girls on syndicated stations, and the top internet search anime for adult men looking for hentai. (You know who you are.)

American game developers are too stupid to accept the fact that women and girls play the exact same video games as boys and men, and we have since gaming started all the way back with Pong, so wrongfully and unfortunately, this was all we could get for Sailor Moon. Game developers also did not want to bring over anything "too Japanese" because they thought nobody would "get it" so until Pokemon and Final Fantasy stopped being "underground" things, the only anime related games we saw on proper gaming consoles were poorly dubbed and often edited games for Dragonball/Z/GT, Ranma ˝ and in 1999, Inuyasha.


In Japan when this was out, the final Sailor StarS games had already been on store shelves for a good while. By that time Nintendo's N64 was already here in America, so nobody would have bothered to try localizing the SNES games anyway, not to mention how DiC and the ESRB would have handled Uranus, Neptune and the Starlights, so even for the first games, it was too late to bring them over here, so we accepted this PC game, because it was this or nothing.


The game hasn't been produced in over two decades and 3VR which made the game went belly-up not long after its biggest hit debuted (Yes, that was Sailor Moon) but on occasion, you might find a copy on This game is a treasure to own, and a real reminder of an era far far away.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to have Kousagi return the time key.
