    Last year, GBAtemp reported on the "lost" Rayman prototype, found by Michel Ancel, the creator of the Rayman series. Though screenshots had been shown, there was no mention if the prototype would ever be released. Months later, however, video game archiver Omar Cornut has dumped the prototype Super Nintendo cart, and uploaded it to the Internet, with Ancel's blessing. The game itself, as most betas are, is quite short, but it gives a window into the early production phase of a series that would later find its grounds on the PlayStation 1 and Sega Saturn.

    Cornut commented on his preservation efforts, saying the following,

    Whoa, it'd be awesome if Ubisoft released this on Nintendo's eShop or a physical SNES cartridge of the game.

    Two new SNES games this year. :)

    Unlike this, Starfox 2 was a finished game.
    Interesting though.

    the animations are really cool, but looks like the only thing Rayman does is walk and jump XD

    Star Fox 2 wasn't a finished game, it was an unfinished prototype. You can claim it was 95% finished but still not in its entirety.

    Just got done playing some of it, the game looks gorgeous but unfortunately not a whole lot to actually play. I found a way to go through the walls in reverse but other than that, nothing else.

    At the end there's a yellow tube and think that's the end.

    Come on Ubisoft, finish this. Nintendo/SNES gamers would love this to be a full game. :)

    Ubisoft is turning Rayman Legends into crap now as they're just re-releasing the same game rather than developing a new Rayman. THIS, this is what I'd love to play! :)

    how about an HD re-release of Rayman 1, with this as an extra level, like the 2D levels in Rayman 3 for example?

    I always liked rayman 2 best, no offense. I appreciate the nice piece of history and legacy, but I just hated the first rayman game. Got a chance to try it on DSI, hated it. Then i went back to GBA, hated it. Went back to PSX, hated it, the music is good though. :)

    Then they added rabbids. And I lost interest. Good bye good rayman games.

    "Rayman Legacy Collection"

    As much as I'd like to see this happen, what are the chances? It's Ubisoft but then again, Activision went the extra mile with Crash Bandicoot so anything is possible. :)

    it'll probably run on the same engine as Origins and Legends (UbiArt, I think?) so if those run, a new installment will probably do so as well.
