David Robinson's Basketball (prototype)
Dino Basher
Dinosaurs Tale
F-15 Strike Eagle 3
Formula 1 Grand Prix 2
Frogger (prototype)

I've been putting together a list of European releases for Digital Press recently, and have not seen any of those.

Rumoured Game Gear games
Post Posted: Tue Jun 07, 2005 4:59 pm
I've read the story about frogger when sega did/didn't have the rights to the game and it never got released bar a few prototype carts, and i saw boxart for the barbie game on the buyrite site before it got closed down for being incredibly useless, maybe this also was pre-release boxart for a game that never made it.
But other than that i'm gonna dismiss the rest unless someone else can come up with new info.

X-Woman was at E3 1996 and I think I might have seen the Game Gear version in an ad for Breakthru!, though I might just be imagining things.

Exists as prototypes:
- David Robinson's Basketball (I own it)
- Frogger (we have a dump on this site)
- Pac-in-Time (same thing)

Haven't heard of any other.
I'd be interested in a definitive US and European release lists. Been planning to do one since a while, but honnestly I'm lacking too much on this area. For many games I can't say weither they were released in US or Europe and vice versa.
If you can submit the data, we can work out a SMS Power list and you'll get credits for it.

http://www.videogamecritic.net/ggal.htm would answer your question about good old Golden Axe.

Brynaldo, do you know if you can get Bailey for the game gear or was it only a ZX spectrum thing?

You can add Off The Wall to that list now - somebody posted images of a working proto on here recently, and it was reviewed by GamePro.

Shadow of the Beast

Mega Force 48 - March 1996:
Street Racer

Virgin catalog 1993-94:

EGM 53 - December 1993:
Eternal Champions. It could be Chicago Syndicate (which was released in 1995 though)

Mega Force also reviewed Road Rash 2.

Talking about Atari, Atari Classics appears on this list (Mega Force 49 - April 1996).

On the same list:
Street Racer (already mentioned above)
Pinocchio (released on Mega Drive, the 32X version never hit the shelves)


Another list, taken from Mega Force 54 - November-December 1996:
Tintin 2 (AKA Tintin et le Temple du soleil / Prisoners of the Sun)
Still on the list:
Street Racer
Spirou

Thanks for posting those. I've been negotiating access to a stash of prototypes from French magazines for almost 15 years now and it look like it may happen this or next year, finger crossed there is something there.

Bock > Good luck! I hope we'll see some unreleased stuff this year.

Found some screenshots for Street Racer, Global Golf and Trunski. I also found a screenshot from an early version of Phantasy Star Gaiden.

Here's the Japanese Game Gear release schedule from late 1996, can someone translate what the last (presumably unreleased) game is?

Thanks for the translation! That was from Weekly Famitsu #416 maybe it was previewed in an earlier issue, but the next one back I have is #382 which doesn't list it, so quite a gap to narrow it down.

中世の日本を舞台にしたフィールド型RPG。
 突然 稲妻に打たれ、カラス天狗の姿になってしまった、主人公 ひすい丸。
 何故 彼は、こんな姿に変えられてしまったのか?
 そして彼を待ちうける運命とは・・・
 というようなストーリーと、画面写真も公開され、ある程度出来上がっていたようですが、いつの間にか自然消滅。
 イラストから見るに、桃太郎や金太郎、牛若丸や弁慶まで登場するはずだったみたいですが、非常にもったいない話です。
