I compiled this list recently at sega8bit.com with the help of several others, and had a request to re-post it over here...

Original thread.

List of all unreleased SMS games known or rumoured to have been in development.
Thanks to playgeneration, Bock, adol, Tonto, kungfukid, dezaneube, Phil, Yawackhary, TheRedEye, Stan Stepanic, S.F, CRV, Brynaldo & james costello/rupert for additions, corrections & scans.

A-Team, The
Videogame musician Jeroen Tel's website lists this amongst his previous compositions. No further details known.

Arch Rivals (Sega)
Listed in the "Master System: Les Jeux 1992 - 1993" booklet (scan), also reviewed in Sega Pro (scan) alongside several screenshots. Mock-up box shown in magazine ad (scan). Game Gear version was released.

Arcus Odyssey
Passwords for this MegaDrive game were erroneously listed in the Master Section of Sega XS magazine, and it later appeared on several older online lists of SMS games.

Bugs Bunny (Sega)
Listed as "coming soon" in "Master System Les Jeux 1992-1993". Also mentioned in issues 12 & 15 of Sega Force.
A GameGear game, Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble, was released but not until 1996, so this may be a different title.

Captain Planet (unknown)
Mentioned in a 1994 French mag (mag??, issue ??, month ??) as being one of the last Master System games in development.

CJ Elephant Fugitive (Codemasters)
Mentioned on last page of Micro Machines instruction manual alongside several screenshots, and also previewed in Sega Power issue 48 (SMS Power scan). Game Gear version was released.

Cliffhanger (Sony Imagesoft)
Reported as in development in issue 5 of Sega Master Force. GameGear version was released.

Cube Zone (Sega)
'Cube Zone' is mentioned in a late 80's Sega retail sales folder, with a suspiciously Galactic Protector-like description: "Wild NEW action from the outer reaches of space! Defend your moon against the evil alien fleet. Colorful, explosive graphics!". According to a 1988 Mastertronic catalogue, it was assigned the part number 5107.

Die Hard II (Grandslam)
Advertised on the inside-cover of The Flintstones manual, listed in "Master System: Les Jeux 1992-1993" and reviewed in issue 1 of Sega Pro (11/91) alonside a couple of screenshots (scan). Also listed for sale in adverts in several UK mags between 1991 & 1993.

Drop Zone (Codemasters)
Mentioned as "out soon" in issue 54 of Sega Power (Aug '94) & previewed in issue 5 of the UK Official Sega Magazine (scan1) (scan2). Also reviewed in issue 8 (scan). Unconfirmed rumours of proto copies have circulated for a while. GameGear version was released.

Primal Rage (TecToy)
Hoax. Listed on eBay in 2001 along with Gunstar Heroes and Thundercats.

Quarter Back (Sega)

Let me see if I could help:

Quote
Bugs Bunny (Sega)
Listed as "coming soon" in "Master System Les Jeux 1992-1993". Game Gear version was released.


This might be a different game since the only other Bugs Bunny game (Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble) was made 3 years later (came out 1996). Possible might be the Crazy Castle game? Not listed in said magazine (just checked at museum).

Quote
DuckTales (Sega)
Listed as "Coming Soon" in "Les Jeux Master System 1992"


Prototype name for Deep Duck Trouble (like Donald Duck for Lucky Dime Caper)? Either that or the impossible (port of the NES game? - now that would be a good idea except that it was made by Capcom). Besides if it was a French magazine it should have been La bande a Picsou (as they are more familar with the name).

Oddly I had ideas of porting these games strangely, as for Bartman vs. Radioactive Man might have not made or just concepted as there are NES screenshots.

Thanks for the comments - I've tweaked the list accordingly.
I hadn't checked the dates for the GG Bugs Bunny but you're right - it's unlikely to be the same title. The SMS Bugs Bunny isn't in the main part of the Les Jeux '92/'93 booklet, but is just included on the "A Paraître" list on the inside-back cover.

Also added comments to Arcus Odyssey, Light Corridor & Light Force - they all appeared in the SMS cheats listing in Sega XS magazine, which may be the original source of those rumours.

I have found something about Sylvester & Tweety in Cagey Capers, apparently it is a port of the Mega Drive version which got released.

Comparing the two screenshots, MD http://www.project2612.org/details.php?id=562 SMS http://www.smstributes.co.uk/images/db/sylvester.jpg, the SMS version is lacking the "Sylvester & Tweety in" part. Maybe this might got scrapped and worked on the MD version instead.

Also there was Sonic Edusoft that was around here on these forums, but still unsure whether it is fake or real yet.

Updated again. Further thanks to all contributors.

PD - I decided against adding the TecToy fakes, but they probably do deserve a mention after all... Will add 'em in next time

I wonder if that wikipedia article should even be there, since it is so speculative that that Sonic game even exists.

Yeah, but in the same issue they also have it down as due for release on the SMS (& GG), the following month from that issue of the mag in their release list for all games due out. So it's not as if they had it as in early development, or due in 6 months - according to them it was due in a few weeks from then. So it would have been WAY past the concept stage. At that timescale you'd think the game was virtually complete! (Not forgetting we know how reliable(!) SMS release lists were at the time!!)

I came across the (mock-up) box art of Arch Rivals in Sega power.
Anyone want a scan, or was it done already?

This is to add from the unrelease list, I just had a look around Jeroen Tel's site (Maniacs of Noise http://www.xs4all.nl/~mon/) and noticed a few games that he done music that weren't released:

The A-Team (for both Master System and Game Gear)
Lethal Weapon 3 (Master System)

Does anyone know about these games?

Updated again - thanks all. Also added some comments to Cube World/Zone stemming from Stan Stepanic's recently-posted interview at sega8bit.com.

Lethal Weapon 3 & The A-Team are both news to me.

I would highly doubt that, since it was A) a first party title (Epyx became a part of Atari), and B) It's more than a little beyond the technical scope of what Game Gear could do.

Underrated little game, though. Started as an Impossible Mission sequel, believe it or not.

Now that I think of it it might not really be that cool. The 'title screen' is a mock up and it just has the text below it. Then again it might be alright. Let me know guys.

So, either I'm the first to catch this, or it was a simple oversight, but Cliffhanger was released for the Game Gear. You should probably make note of it!

mini update for you..

I have found another Mastertronic booklet (88/89) that gives Cube Zone a product number of 5107 (which puts it between Rescue Mission 5106 and Fantasy Zone The Maze 5108).

Here's a link..
http://shinobiman.proboards15.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=1164885949&page=3

I will email Maxim with higher quality scans for the scans section.

Also anagrama, amend your list as it never said 'Cube World' in my booklet, if you look on the thread above that was my typo mistake that you have quoted from. so all sources named it as 'Cube Zone'.

and maybe also update that benne located a boxed with insert Big Nose (proto/ sample?) on ebay.au.

Here's a scan of Robin Hood which might be new (I saw the same screenshots in the other scans, but still). Sega Power #36 (November 1992). The pack contains a hi-res PNG which might come in use for something.

Strange that I have never heard of that game, are you sure the box wasn't just some early art and the game was officially released?

Tecmo Cup Football Game and Battletoads for Master System
Post Posted: Mon Jul 14, 2008 4:10 pm
Here are references for two apparently unreleased games for the Master System: Tecmo Cup Football Game and Battletoads. These can be found in a Spanish promo VHS by SEGA from early 1993 (and now uploaded to YouTube).

A couple of pics of Tecmo Cup Football Game:





On screen it reads: "Available" "Mega Drive" "Master Sistem II" (notice the name misspelling, and the console is also referred with the numeral of the second model)

The gameplay footage is from the also unreleased (but eventually leaked) Mega Drive version, but this is the case of every multi-platform game appearing in this VHS.

This can be checked in this YouTube video (first part of the aforementioned VHS), at 2:30.

And a couple of pics of Battletoads:





Again, the screen reads: "Available" "Mega Drive" "Master Sistem II" (misspelled and referred with the numeral again)

Notice that this isn't "Battletoads in Battlemaniacs", intended for release in Europe by Virgin in 1994, and eventually released in Brazil by Tec Toy. This is actually the original "Battletoads" NES game, ported and released by SEGA in 1993 for the Mega Drive and Game Gear (this version isn't referenced in the video, though). The gameplay footage, again, is from the Mega Drive version.

Can be checked in this other YouTube video (second part of the same VHS), at 0:42.

Sonic Chaos 2 (Sega)
Listed as "In the pipeline" in Sega Power (Jul '94). Released on Game Gear only as 'Sonic Triple Trouble'


I swear I saw this in my local game hire store (Game Mania, Elizabeth, South Australia) back in the day. The Game Gear was well & truly dead in my area, so it couldn't possibly have that which I saw...

sigh...

Wow. A Godfather SMS game. How $&@^ing great would that have been.. :(


Seriously

Infact most of those games sound like they would have been awesome. The list makes me kind of sad actually.

Here's some more stuff for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves for SMS/GG (that never happened, again it's all NES screenshots). The text mentions that the conversion was (planned to be?) done by Steve Lamb, whose name is on the title screen of Marble Madness; he may be findable (last info I can find placed him at Climax in the UK). Dates are relative to 1993.
