Gekido [N-Gage – Cancelled]

Gekido is a series of beat ’em up games developed by Naps Team, released for the Playstation and GameBoy Advance, with a Gekido PSP and a Gekido GameBoy Color that were never finished for some reasons. It seems that they planned an N-Gage chapter too, as we can read in an old IGN article, but even this version was canned. The 2D sprites were really good and it could have been one of the best looking games for the N-Gage, but it possible that they had to stop the development because of the low sales of the Nokia console / phone.

Gekido [GameBoy Color – Cancelled?]

Gekido is a series of beat ’em up created by Naps Team, released on the Playstation and GameBoy Advance. A GameBoy Color version of Gekido was developed too, but the only proof of its existence is an old page on the official Naps team website and some lines in wikipedia. There are no cartdidges on Ebay, no ROM floating around the web, no review available, almost no screenshots… we can speculate that Gekido GBC was never published for some reasons.

Gekido for the PSP was also in development but never released.

Gekido: The Dark Angel [PSP – Cancelled?]

The developer of Gekido, NAPS Team, announced that a second sequel (or the actual sequel itself) was in development for the PSP, titled Gekido: The Dark Angel. A few screenshots and a trailer have surfaced, but as yet the PSP title has largely gone unnoticed, without much information. The release date was projected to be Christmas 2006 but to no avail; most likely a publisher has not yet accepted the game, it is still in development or cancelled. There are no new info on the game from a couple of years. The teaser-trailer for Gekido: The Dark Angel resembles anime-like characters and a character named Samuel with looks that seem to have been inspired by Dante from Capcom’s Devil May Cry.[Info from Wikipedia]
