There's a bit about it in Japanese here: http://www.ne.jp/asahi/oroti/famicom/mab08.html#3

There's a couple of scanned screen shots too.

There's quite a few unreleased games on that site in fact: http://www.ne.jp/asahi/oroti/famicom/mab00.html

Looking at the list anyone got any more info on あるでんらるでん (aruden raruden)?  It looks just like Robocco Wars.

Does it count if the game was scrapped in Japan, then released under a different name elsewhere?

I'd think that could be included. And I'll try to have some screens from Armadillo II soon. Don't know if the ROM ever got out. I imagine, just like with the NES, some of the ROMs got out as protos.

FDS version of the Mii Channel Tongue

Did that have a name?

Is that a Gameboy version of Armadillo I see?

Where did you find the handbill?  Yahoo Auctions?

Yes, the bottom right corner is a tiny ad for the GameBoy version of Armadillo that was never released.  The rest of it is for Armadillo 2 for Famicom that was also never released.

The katakana on that handbill is WAY off. It should say "アルマジロ", arumajiro. It says something like "apaajiro". Maybe it's the weird font throwing me off...

Just the weird font.   You can make it out, almost if you concentrate enough!
