    Michel Ancel, creator of the platforming game series Rayman, has found a lost relic of the 1990s: A prototype of Rayman for the Super Nintendo. Deemed lost by the development team for 24 years, Ancel rediscovered it and posted a picture of it running on a European Super Nintendo on his Instagram feed.

    According to Unseen64, a site dedicated to betas and unreleased games, Rayman was initially developed for the Super Nintendo, but when the CD-based technology of the Sony PlayStation launched, development moved to it. Rayman SNES was also set to have a 2 player co-op feature and the story was to star an 11 year old boy named Jimmy.

    I hope we get a sort of finished version of this on perhaps Rayman's anniversary.


    We need Jimmy.

    Most devs just don't dump things like this. At most we'll see a gameplay video until someone unaffiliated with the rayman series either buys it and preserves it physically or dumps it and then does the former.

    but then again that'd take years.

    Hopefully, the rom gets "leaked" by a random person...

    (It can't be "released" but it could still be leaked)

    What I've just noticed is that SNES is a PAL model but it's got that adaptor on it and it's playing a NTSC game I'm guessing since it's running at 60hz
    and the problem with that is PAL SNES consoles cannot play games from other regions non stop to what I remember about the SNES

    It must be something with that adapter It must disable something within the console itself.

    The developer most likely just doesn't know that EUR SNES is locked to 50FPS, opposed to the US and JPN systems. That adapter just disables the region check, it can't make a EUR SNES run 60Hz, that's only possible by modifying the console itself.

    I know is a unfinished prototype but still no cart case? I wondered what that 1994 artwork would have looked like. Also i never seen that console before, my snes looks way different. :blink:

    And also the Japanese unit looks almost the same.
    Except it saying "Super Famicom" instead of SNES.
