    Quite a few of those games did see a release. Rise of the Robots was released in Europe for sure on the Mega Drive. Star Quest "by" namco is the NCS Misaya game Star Cruiser which I own. Here's a link to it on my site - http://www.segagagadomain.com/megadrive/starcruiser.htm

    Yakumo> I didn't know about Star cruiser, thanks for the info.
    Rise of the robot has been released on many machines (PC, Mega Drive, Super NES...). According to Antonio Argentieri, the development of the Mega-CD version has never started, though it was officially announced.

    Edit: I made a few researches. It seems Star cruiser was meant to be published by Dreamworks in the USA but its localisation has been canned.

    Thanks.
    I forgot to mention Impossible mission. Developed by Microprose for both Mega Drive and Super NES, the game was finished but it seems it has been canned due to a lack of money.

    Celine> I know 2 different titles of canned rally games on Mega-CD:
    _Rally: the final round of the world rally championship which was meant to be published by JVC (as the one listed above). It appears on the plannings until 1994-95.
    _World Rally (wonderful generic name!), listed since 1991 on the japanese plannings and produced by Visco.



    Bonk/Pc Genjin, the arcade game (though I'm not sure it was canned):

    Taken from EGM, issue 53.



    Some other pictures of Bonk RPG next time.

    Bonk RPG (PC Engine, EGM 35)

    Time Trax (Mega Drive, EGM 57). The game is known for its soundtrack composed by Tim Follin (the start screen music can be found on his website).

    pc genjin arcade for the sfc is a pretty cool find..but it dose not feel like a sfc game to me if you know what i mean so maybe it just stayed as a rumor.
    time trax looks ok.their are a lot of games with the word time in them.

    Hey, thanks for the scans, those are a bittersweet blast to read. One question:

    But Operation Europe: Path to Victory was released for Genesis, no? Either that or the copy on my shelf is a mirage. Or is there another Operation Europe Koei game?

    rod_wod> I'm not sure to understand your message. It's not one of the SFC games, it was developed for the arcade market.

    goldenbrand> my mistake!

    I don't understand what this guy was trying to say, though it's written in french.
    It seems the game was shown and/or announced many times but its release wasn't officially confirmed. It sounds like GT interactive wasn't sure to want to release this game. Maybe they were waiting for a positive reaction of the public.

    "Golf (working title) from Data East,a rather cynical clone of Namco's Everybody Golf featuring network play;"

    Yes it was. This became the golf game released by Sega called Net Golf or to give the game it's Japanese title, Nettou Golf. that game was produced by Data East however Sega released it. Also, the character in your screen shot is the same one used in the Sega game, Net Golf. It's the 3rd guy from the right.

    (I almost forgot about this thread)
    I made a few researches about this one but found nothing related: the back cover of the Neo-Geo CD version of King of Fighters '94 features a screenshot of what seems to be an early version of the Mexico stage:

    [​IMG]

    The final version looks like this:

    [​IMG]


    Note that on the same cover, you'll see that all the defeated characters are marked by a cross, except for Goro Daimon on the up right screenshot who is only grey-tinted.

    Today, the french website Gamekult covers Magician Lord on Neo-Geo Pocket color. They posted a video and many screenshots of the alpha version they found years ago.
