This game was made by Face in 1994 but it was lost and not released untill the buy-out of SNK by the Aruze (pronounced Aruzay) pachinko company in January 2000. Third party distributors bought many games from SNK/Aruze and have been releasing them.

Digger Man is part of a series with another Face game called Gururin which was also created in 1994. Gururin was made and released before Digger Man, but rumors have it that Digger Man is actually the first game in the series.
