Akira (Game Gear)
Post Posted: Tue Jun 02, 2009 12:59 pm
Someone's posted a magazine scan featuring the unreleased Akira Game Gear game, based on the animated movie.

In my interview with Matt Harmon, he said:

It was a five-engine game. The motorcycle riding level was vertical, not horizontal. It had a street fighting level and even a 3D maze level ala Wolfenstein. And this is why it never shipped. Too ambitious. Actually, maybe there was a Genesis or SNES version or Game Boy version, too. Anyways, for sure, the Game Gear had a street and vertical motorcycle level. To my knowledge, it never shipped and was never finished, but I believe Clearwater (the old Tahoe) made it. I was at THQ at the time working as Lead Programmer on SNES The Mask (based on the Jim Carrey film).

Sounds cool, I wonder if there is a proto somewhere out there.
