Flying Edge

From Audiovisual Identity Database


Flying Edge was one of Acclaim Entertainment's labels used during the peak period of the Sega Genesis, Game Gear and Master System. It published games for Sega systems and was folded into Acclaim Entertainment in 1994.


Logo: On a blue background, we see the stacked words "FLYING EDGE" in 3D, with a yellow wing arrow between the words.


  • The coloring of the background varies. Some games have a white, black, or lighter-blue background. On Arch Rivals for Genesis, the background is magenta.
  • The text does not have a 3D effect (therefore looking much flatter) on The Simpsons: Bart Vs. The Space Mutants on Genesis and Game Gear.
  • On Krusty's Super Fun House for Game Gear, a copyright notice is seen below the logo: FLYING EDGE IS A DIVISION OF ACCLAIM ENTERTAINMENT, INC.
  • On Robocop 3, the background is white, and the letters are Persian green.
  • On Super Smash T.V., the logo has a more detailed design with metallic-green letters.
  • There may be compressed "PRESENTS" below between two dots, or no word at all. The "PRESENTS" text looks different on some games.
  • On The Simpsons: Bart's Nightmare, we see Bart running past the logo screaming.
  • On Roger Clemens MVP Baseball, WWF Royal Rumble and WWF Super WrestleMania, the yellow wing arrow fades in with the logo.

Technique: None or the yellow wing arrow fading on the WWF variants.

Music/Sounds: None or the opening theme of the game.

Availability: Common. Can be seen on many games for Sega systems during the era.
