  1. You had Jaleco pronounced correctly the first time.
    Hehe the only reason I know this is because there was a crappy beat em up on the SNES I used to play made by that studio. In the opening splash screen the name Jaleco is shown proceeded by a sampled voice saying the name. Here is a video of a playthrough of the game. You can see my example within the first few seconds. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0cj5YWmats
