Unreleased Psygnosis Mega Drive Game ‘Hardcore’ Coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2019

Friday, August 17th, 2018

In 1994, Digital Illusions were developing a game for the Mega Drive called Hardcore. The game was to be published by Psygnosis and nearly made it to release, but ultimately it was canned as Psygnosis began its focus on the next generation of consoles.

Now, a new team called Strictly Limited have been given the license to the original game data and with the help from some of the Digital Illusions developers, they will finish the game and release it for PS4 and PS Vita in 2019.

Hardcore is currently the working title of the game, but a digital and physical release has been promised. You can see the game in action by clicking the embed below:

Keep an eye on the game’s official website for more news.

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

It’s been a while since we last heard about the unreleased SEGASonic Bros. arcade game that was discovered by Tumblr user ShouTime, but it appears he’s bringing the game to the California Extreme arcade show this weekend.

The game will be fully playable at the show, specifically at the exA-Arcadia booth. Hopefully an attendee will see fit to film the game in action so we can finally see some off-screen footage of it. Currently there’s only a selection of screenshots from ShouTime himself available to view online.

California Extreme takes place on the 28th and 29th of July. Full details can be obtained via the official website. Tickets are available on the door.

Unreleased Ecco II Game for Dreamcast Now Available to Download and Play

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Ecco_II_DC_(7)

An unreleased sequel to Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future called Ecco II: Sentinels of the Universe has been leaked online. A disc image of the unreleased Dreamcast title is available to download now and play on actual Dreamcast hardware.

The game is incomplete, features no sound and the debug menu is constantly active but it does present a curious oddity that suggests SEGA’s reboot of the Ecco the Dolphin franchise did well enough for the publisher to consider a sequel. Information also seems to suggest the game was cancelled around the time SEGA left the console business to become a third party software publisher, which would explain the game’s cancellation.

Click here to be taken to the Hidden Palace wiki where the disc image for Ecco II: Sentinels of the Universe is available to download.

New SEGASonic Bros. Screenshot Shows Multi-Coloured Sonics in Action

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

segasonicbros

We’ve finally got a screen of SEGASonic Bros. that shows the multi-coloured Sonics that appear on the title screen, but actually in action.

While we’ve previously seen screens of different coloured balls on the game’s play-field (see below), the multi-coloured Sonics that appear on the title screen hadn’t previously been shown in game. From the above screenshot we can see the multi-coloured Sonics are actually used in play. We can only assume that turn into balls when placed or scored.

ShouTime has also uploaded an image of a Sonic the Hedgehog rucksack which is tagged with ‘SEGASonic Bros’. It’s not confirmed but this could be a piece of merchandise that was tied into the release of the game, but it doesn’t explicitly state this on the actual rucksack.

Unreleased Sonic Arcade Game SEGASonic Bros. Discovered

Friday, February 5th, 2016

segasonicbros01

In one of the most surprising discoveries in recent memory, an unreleased 1992 Sonic arcade game called SEGASonic Bros. has been revealed by Tumblr user ShouTime.

The game appears to be a puzzle game that was location tested but sadly failed said test. ShouTime, the user responsible for discovering the game’s arcade board, is also the person responsible for the ROM dump of the SEGASonic Popcorn Shop that was made available back in October 2015.

Another image of the game and some further information was also released by ShouTime. This information confirms that the game was developed by Bubble Bobble creator Fukio Mitsuji and the second screenshot shows a menu screen that bares surprising similarities to Puzzle Bobble:

SEGAbits have also discovered mention of the game from an old issue of EGM. The article details a few announcements regarding various Sonic games, including a comment that mentions an upcoming arcade game that, “invites multiple players to assume the role of different colored Sonics”.

Furthermore, a Sonic Retro forum user called Black Squirrel has also discovered mention of another unreleased Sonic arcade game in a different issue of EGM. The extract says, “We have developed two Sonic arcade games that have never been released because they were not the specialness that Sonic was”.

Fingers crossed ShouTime reveals further information about the game in due course!

Unreleased Amiga Sonic Clone ‘Blaze’ Finally Released

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

blaze

In 1993 a man called Keith Bugeja was working a new platformer for the Amiga called Blaze. The game was to be published by Warp Software but development was stopped for unknown reasons. Well, I say, “unknown” but when you look at how close the action is to the original Sonic the Hedgehog, you’ll soon come to your own conclusions.

Check out Blaze in action via the embed below:

The only existing build of Blaze has now been dumped and is available to download from Bugeja’s personal blog.
