    Someone put a Jet Grind sticker on a cart.
    Mystery solved. Kidding. It'd be nice if it was something more though.

    Yeah, that makes no sense. Smilebit was a Sega studio and during that time they were still on the dreamcast.

    Why would Jet Set Radio be ported to the N64? It makes no sense. Sales weren't that great plus the console isn't powerful enough to handle it. Just a sticker on a cartridge IMO.

    This was posted before.. It's not what everyone thinks. It's just a sticker.

    All technicalities aside, If they attempted to make JSR on the N64 it would have been terrible.
    The N64 wouldn't be able to fit even half the soundtrack, anyway.. Good luck fitting 18 songs on a 64mb cart.

    2 CD Resident Evil 2 fit on a N64 cart, the video quality although lower wasn't that terrible

    True. Gotta give props to the devs for fitting 1.4gb on a small cart.
    Oh god, imagine the fog. The dreaded N64 fog would be EVERYWHERE.

    EDIT: Looking at the picture, I'm trying to figure out the size of the cart.
    There's a "2" I can clearly see, but what would that be? checking out other carts with that sticker (here) it seems that Nintendo did not put spaces between the numbers and the "M" for the size. It looks like there'd be spaces for 3 characters. If im not mistaken that may be 256M (but that'd be so weird, biggest carts were 64m and it'd seem so costly to make a 256m cart).
    Just some speculation from what I saw.

    If Nintendo 64 was CD based then maybe, but I doubt it. When Jet Grind Radio came out, wasn't it a Sega exclusive?

    That's a 56 under the reflection between the 2 and the M making 256M which is 32MB so half those 64MB carts size.

    Release date to Turok 3 was in August 2000 so it would fit in perfectly, probably a final release review copy.

    Looks like it is Turok 3.. This wasn't "click bait" by any means.. More of I got really excited and wanted to take it to the one place I knew had the answers. After I posted.. I started thinking it was probably Turok 3.. There is also a got that use to work for Acclaim posting in that thread.. He hasn't confirmed anything, but if he does I'll update..

    Just a sticker, plus....if they hypothetically were developing in secret a JSR for the N64....how the console would handle the Cel Shading? not possible i guess

    They could have probably scaled it down enough.

    Even though I still think it was a strange dream, This Happened:

    They should have used a sticker with the Japanese logo on it. That really would have helped the hoax be more believable.

    I can picture the N64 version's soundtrack. It would exist... just in butchered form, heavily-compressed Tony Hawk style. Aka a 5 second guitar riff or chorus piece from a full song, on loop, forever.

    2 of 4 tracks include:
    (DJ, Go, Go Go. *repeat*)
    (Territory, it's a territory. *repeat*)

    It's a sticker.

    Seriously are people so stupid to think sega ,while bleeding money on DC would have
    an N64 devkit to port a game to a system with a maximum storage of 512mbit? And then never do so if they spent all the money?

    FFS people.
