In november 2008 Sample_Seller opened an auction on Ebay for a Batman prototype that was in development by Software Creations for the Super Nintendo.
BATMAN super nintendo SAMPLE/DEMO US NTSC version
Very early 2 level demo, no sound… undiscovered batman game!!
Devoloped by SOFTWARE CREATIONS.
Original development sample game direct from Nintendo !!
Rare unreleased/unannounced game !! Only a few were made, unique item for any collector !!
As we can read on Wikipedia, Software Creations were primarily known for their video games based on movie and comic licenses like Marvel Comics, Cutthroat Island, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and original titles Solstice and the sequel Equinox. Their Batman project was never released for unknown reasons.
As Yakumo as noted, this Batman demo has been on the scene for years, infact since the begining of the Super Magicom, Wildcard, profighter and so on. A rom of the demo was leaked and should be easily findable with google.
You can read more info on this beta at SNES Central!
Thanks to Yakumo and Celine for the contributions!
This Batman demo has been on the scene for years, infact since the begining of the Super Magicom, Wildcard, profighter and so on. It’s an awful demo so it’s no surprise that the game never got finished. I wonder if the cartridge on sale was the real deal or just the ripped rom burnt back to an EPROM?
Thanks for the info Yakumo, i did not know that this demo was around from so much time :O I’ll add the “leaked” tag to the game :)
Grazie per il video Celine, lo aggiungo subito :)
Per fortuna non è mai uscito,guarda che bruttura…
Yes, I had this “game” rom about 13 years ago when I was a teenager (now I’m 33) so it’s very old news to me but still cool for those who’ve never known about it.
It’s really cool to know that :-)
The bad guys here are actually modded sprite rips from SC’s own Genesis Double Dragon 3.
