Reverse-Engineered Star Fox Running on Mega Drive

Friday, March 8th, 2013

SNES game Star Fox has been reverse-engineered to run on a Mega Drive by developer Stef at the forums.

It’s certainly very bare bones at this point, running at an incredibly low framerate with sound missing but it’s still an incredible acheivement. If you’d like to try it yourself you can download the work-in-progress rom here.

Hackers Discover F-Zero AX Hidden in F-Zero GX

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Developed by SEGA’s Amusement Vision team, F-Zero GX was released in 2003 for the Gamecube under the supervision of Nintendo. The game was developed side-by-side with the rare arcade game F-Zero AX which includes exclusive tracks and a focus on timed gameplay. The arcade version was developed on the Triforce board which was jointly developed by Nintendo, SEGA and Namco.

In a bizarre turn of events, hackers have discovered that the complete version of F-Zero AX is hidden deep within F-Zero GX and is now accessible via action replay codes which you can get below. You can also see the game in action via the following video:
