Martin Konrad has more contributions for U64 on the way: today he has shared two scans from two different german magazines, with screens of the GameGear version of Road Rash 2, which hasn’t been released. As he write in his email “Unfortunately the street isn’t as complex as in Road Rash 1 on GG/SMS. It’s very flat in these screens and with not much detail. But there is something interesting: there’s another motorcycle-game on the GG called “Kawasaki Superbike Challenge” and when you look into the rom-dump, there is a text that says “Road Rash 2 conversion by …”. I haven’t found this out myself, it’s from a post in the SMSpower Forum. I think it’s possible that Road Rash 2 was changed into Kawasaki Superbike Challenge. In Kawasaki SC, the streets does also not have much detail or hills like in these RR2 screenshots (advantage is that the game runs much smoother).”
Thanks a lot to Martin Konrad for these screens and info!
U64 is an archive with articles, screens and videos for cancelled, beta & unseen videogames. Every change & cut creates a different gaming experience: we would like to save some documents about this evolution for curiosity, historic and artistic preservation.
