Fans Bring The Canceled, Unfinished Sonic X-Treme To Life

A motivated group on the Sonic Retro Forums has painstakingly ported the cancelled, unfinished Sega Saturn 3D Sonic title Sonic X-Treme to PC so it can be played on modern machines.

You can check out some gameplay footage of the port in the video below, and find out more about the project and how to play it yourself by heading here. So far, only one level has been released, but the group hopes to release more over time.

Sonic X-Treme was meant to be Sonic's 3D debut on Sega Saturn, and had development not collapsed, it would have released shortly after hugely successful 3D platformers like Super Mario 64 and Crash Bandicoot.

Gameplay from Sonic X-Treme surfaced for the first time recently in the form of a thought-lost E3 promo video, which you can see here.
