    Never heard of Ratchet and Bold.

    Street Racer, looks like the SNES version :mario:

    As a side note, will "La bible PC Engine" ever be translated in english ?
    ( while waiting at a Nes/Snes book ).

    I haven't found a lot of information about Ratchet and bolt other than those included in the 2 interviews I linked (which don't mention the Mega Drive version). This picture is the only one I have ever seen.

    I don't remember there was a zoom function (as shown on the top-right picture) in the SNES version of Street Racer. But the colors are very similar and the 32X features an equivalent of the SNES famous Mode 7.

    I don't know what are Pix n' Love's plans for the english/american market. The first volume of L'histoire de Nintendo (The history of Nintendo) is available since august 2010. Here is the page which lists the next books, but it looks like they don't update it every day:
    http://pixnlovepublishing.com/topic/index.html

    The third volume (dedicated to the NES) was released a few weeks ago. Actually, there is a book dedicated to the console and its history and a book dedicated to the games. I don't know if they talk about unreleased games.

    Wait to see Blackhole Assault!

    By the way, talking about 36 great holes (or Golf Magazine presents 36 Great Holes Starring Fred Couples), the game was also planned on Sega CD 32X (and canned for an unknown reason):

    Fun fact: look at the name of the "machine". The official appealation of the combo Sega CD + 32X is Sega CD 32X. The only other game which has this appealation is Shadow of Atlantis, but only on the 2nd cover (I know 3 covers for this game).

    King The Spirit for Saturn was released, wasn't it? (Without the "hill" in the title iirc)
    seems familiar, though it's been a looooong time.

    I'm curious about Fahrenheit... "SEGA CD and 32X CD included"? Could you draw advantage of the 32X from the SEGA CD or vice versa? I know Pier Solar uses SEGA CD just for the soundtrack, but this sounds strange.

    Christer-swe> the north american version of Fahrenheit includes both versions: 1 CD for the Sega CD game and 1 CD for the Sega CD 32X game, which has more colors.

    I'm pretty sure they already know this forum and some of their writers read and/or comment this thread. So if they want to take the pictures/informations I posted here, it's totally free.
    And if they want to ask me for some informations in particular, I'll try to answer to them, here or on Unseen 64's forum where I registered ;)


    Lunar Eternal Blue (Mega-CD): the flying cat Ruby in its human form:

    On the left, a puzzle game based on the PC Kid series. On the right, RPC Genjin (mentionned a few posts above)

    I forgot the brasilian poster with the Mega/Sega 32X CD appealation:

    As much as I love deadly premonition, I can help but wonder how the game would have been with a different character but same exact dialogue, situations.It started out of rainy woods which by the looks of the 2007 trailer it was complete as it has close to the end cutscenes.To top it off the main characters father in the finished version is actually a 3d model of the prototype main character but with his face blacked out.And for some reason in the promotional facebook account they have for the final game u can see the prototype main character left in.According to a magazine their dev timeline stage after the tgs 2007 trailer ,the project was frozen and development restarted in 2009 but treated as a new project.

    The gun is the kind of thing I probably wouldn't have noticed by myself.



    Though it was obvious, I didn't notice Machinehead became Blam! Machinehead, released on Saturn, Playstation and PC in november-december 1996. Almost 2 years for making this game...

    Ah memories, I still remember Machinehead paper ad on mid nineties mags.

    Doesn't look like PC Genjin RPG the screenshot on the right.
    Is this scan always taken from "La bible PC Engine" ?
    Any more details about the two games.

    From what magazine was taken the "Ratchet & Bolt" scan ?

    My mistake. I guess the screenshot on the right is taken from a wargame based on the Pc Kid series. It's not very clear in the book, there is'nt any caption with the pictures. But they said a wargame was in development.
    So, the unreleased games based on this character were:
    _RPC Genjin, 40% of the game was done in mars 92. It seems RED/Hudson change their mind 2 months after and decided to not develop the game on Hu Card anymore. The Super CD Rom was seen as a better machine for a RPG.
    _an unnamed wargame. The picture I posted is the only one shown in this book. In development from 1990 to 1991.
    _an unnamed puzzle game. It seems the picture I posted is the only one ever seen. In development from 1990 to 1991.
    _a game which seems similar to super momotaro densetsu. No picture shown, probably canceled in 1990, before the wargame and the puzzle game.

    Why these games were canned? because RED/Hudson couln't produce so many games simultaneously. During the same period, Tengai Makyo 2 and PC Kid 2 were developed.

    Informations taken from "La bible PC Engine".



    Ratchet and bolt's picture is taken from Super Sonic (july-august 1994), a magazine published from 1992 to 1995 and dedicated to Sega.
    A few issues are available on abandonware magazine.

    unreleased.
    Available on many computers (Commodore 64, Amiga, Ataris ST, Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum)
    Picture taken from Super Sonic (May 92)
    Release date: September 92
    It says it was meant to be published by Virgin but the computer versions were published by Infogrames...
