20 years after being originally announced for the Sega Saturn, the lost legend of Sonic X-treme could finally be unearthed.
Cool, people may finally realize that super mario galaxy wasn't as original as they thought.
I bet someone thought about the light bulb before Thomas edison. I bet someone else thought of many things. But other people made it happen. Even if this game ever were to come to light, it still would not of had near the same ideas that involve gravity puzzle platforming and situations. Galaxy did it first. Nintendo made the idea of space and blew everyone out of the water without ever hearing about this game that was never made. Maybe someone else other than thomas edison would have invented the lightbulb if he never did. But that does not lower the credibility of creativity and invention making just because someone else could have done it. He made it popular, he did it first with his own mind. Just like galaxy did with itself.
Amen getting sick and tired of these so called Sonic fanboys trying to promote a dead mascotte while discrediting a certain famous plumber
Actually, Nikola Tesla by all rights should be known for "inventing" electricity, as he created AC which we use today. Edison is just more well known because hes American, which is a bit unfair to history. ANYWAYS, back on topic lol, ive never heard of this Sonic game until now, thats pretty interesting. I loved most of the old sonic games
Didn't know my comment would strike a chord. Wasn't discrediting nintendy, just shows sega was ahead of their time and not knowing it. Kinda like Nintendo is behind times and not knowing it.
Well, Sonic Adventure 2 also had levels with a gravity system. They were awful, just plain miserable. The concept in Super Mario Galaxy was hardly new...But the level of quality really brought out the potential in the concept to create a masterpiece of a game.
no. totally different from what you are thinking. anyway ratchet and clank did that before mario aswell.
Wow, I need to play this.
thank god i just bought a modded saturn not too long ago
it wont play on your saturn man, it was a PC build. go read up on it on neogaf while you get the chance. you need an NVidia NV1 and windows 95 to play it. pretty much a relic from the past to play it LOL. but hey, if someone can be able to port the code todays machines, then we might have a chance LOL
or the best we can get is to just watch someone play :( well didnt really think this game looked that great in the past anyway.
I love it when the video game community gets together on stuff like this it just truly makes me smile, when i read the title I almost did a backflip out of joy.
Intresting. This was supposed to be sonics real introduction to 3d but it never fully happened until sonic adventure. Fro the beta footage it gives me a headache and not because of speed but because of motion and I have played many motion games (Portal 2, Super mario galaxy, etc).
That fish-eye lens didn't really help.
I'd love Sega to go back and release this game as a downloadable game for the wiiu, Xbox one and ps4. Keep the game the same as well as the level designs but touch it up for HD TV's and I'm sure alot of games would pay £10 for it as it would have a lot of hype too being the game that we never got to see.
This is amazing, but I have a hard time believing it's going to be anything other than a complete mess.
This is a title I would've bought for my saturn in 1997! It reminds me a bit of Nights into dreams when there's the walking around sequence with Elliot and Clara.
Well, for a while, it actually did use the same engine as NIGHTS, but Yuji Naka threatened to leave Sega if they didn't stop using the engine.
Wow! that's always awesome to hear stories about my favorite console of all time...Nights is part of my best childhood memories, so it's neat to hear something I was completely unaware of. Thanks!
