posted on by Rai

Sonic The Hedgehog has been a popular game for many years, but not all of its projects have been a success. Liam Robertson revealed details about the unreleased game Sonic The Hedgehog Extreme in a new Unseen64 video.

Vision Scape Interactive (Razor Racing, X-Bladez: Inline Skater) began developing the game in 2002, which would have been based on Vision Scapes' previous skateboarding games. Sonic The Hedgehog Extreme would have featured Sonic characters riding and racing on hover boards on tracks inspired by famous places in the Sonic universe, such as the Green Hill Zone from the original game. The game would have also included different modes. Players could go into a free-style mode to explore and do skateboard tricks, or race other in multi-players. The developers were planning to release the game on PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube. However, the game never made it past the development stage and was never released.

Sega released the first Sonic The Hedgehog game in 1991 for the Sega Genesis. The game has remained popular, and has inspired several different projects. Sonic was recently featured as a playable characters in Lego Dimensions. Sega Sammy Holdings president and CEO Hajime Satomi also confirmed that his company is planning to create a live-action/animation hybrid film in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment for release in 2018.
