Tiny Toon Adventures: DotL is the name of Tiny Toon Adventures video game that seems to have been cancelled. Originally developed by Treasure Video Games, it was originally slated for the PlayStation 2 and possibly the Nintendo GameCube. It was originally slated for release in May of 2001, but thanks to many delays, the game no longer has a foreseeable future.Other possible titles for the game included Tiny Toon Adventures: Defenders of the Loony-verse, Tiny Toon Adventures: Defenders of the Universe, and Tiny Toon Adventures: ACME Invasions. None of them were confirmed, however.
The game’s original official website, www.dotu.net, no longer exists. Tetsuhiko Kikuchi (aka Han), the apparent director of the game, his hinted on his homepage(Japanese) that the game has indeed been cancelled. An article on IGN written back in 2004 suggested that the game has always been intended for release. The article says at the end “Still officially slated to come out sometime (not necessarily in 2004)”, but 2005 has even come and gone with nothing new about this game released. The main page at IGN now has cancelled for the US release date. Defenders of the Looniverse was of the most interest to Treasure fans because it was based of the gameplay that was originally in Rakugaki Showtime. The gameplay had been greatly expanded over Rakugaki and the most obvious additions included large, interactive levels and a new scenario mode that allowed for 4 player co-operative play and giant bosses.” [wikipedia]
In february 2009, a beta of Tiny Toon Adventure was leaked online, thanks to linlhutz from the Lost Levels Forum, and it can now be played and preserved! Huge props to him! You can read the original topic at the LLForum and download the leaked Tiny Toon Adventures beta in here or here (Thanks to X-Cult for the mirror). If you are not able to play this one, you can look at a series of videos (with some framerate issues because of the emu) thanks to ChibiTeinko, check his Youtube Channel.
