Super Shinobi 2 (Shinobi 3) [MD/G – Beta]

md_ss2

Shinobi 3 (released in Japan as Super Shinobi 2) was originally set to be released in 1992. Several gaming magazines (including GamePro, Mean Machines SEGA and Computer & Video Games) gave previews and even reviews of the game, showing pictures of levels, enemies, artwork and special moves which were not seen in the final version at all. For reasons unclear, Sega had put the game back into development and delayed its release until 1993. When Shinobi 3 was finally released, a lot of game features seen earlier were missing, while new ones had come in place. – [Info from wikipedia]

Moon Dancer [MegaDrive / Genesis – Cancelled]

A cancelled Mega Drive / Genesis RPG, as we can read at Sega16:

“It was an RPG based on a serialized story that ran in Beep magazine in Japan in 1989. The magazine staff teamed up with Sega to develop the game and it seems like some progress was made on it. They hired Hitoaki Minami of Advanced Daisenryaku fame to work on it but after being heavily promoted in Beep it was eventually canceled after 6 months.”

“Expected release was March 1990. Gameplay was story-based adventure with battles being grid-based strategy and there were also RPG elements.  Seems like a lot of progress was made on the game. I wonder if a prototype will ever turn up.”
