Sonic xtreme

Could this have saved the Sega Saturn?

Sonic X-Treme was meant to be a Sonic game released exclusively for the Sega Saturn and was planned to be Sonic's official jump to 3D.

Why it was CancelledEdit

  1. The prototypes and engines that Sonic Team developed couldn't run properly when tested in an actual Sega Saturn, causing massive amounts of development troubles and delays while trying to make the game work. The Sega Saturn's complicated architecture made the situation even worse for the developers.
  2. Sonic's speedy gameplay was very difficult to make work in 3D.
  3. Yuji Naka refused to let Sega use the Nights into Dreams game engine as a starting point to make the game work.
  4. The excessive amount of work and stress caused the lead developers to become sick and were told that if they didn't quit the project immediately they would die in about 6 months.
