Nintendo is winning the market of classic console gaming with the release of Nintendo Switch earlier this year and now with the Nintendo Classic mini SNES.
There is also news about a classic game namely ‘Rayman’ which was under development for the NES but never got released. Although an archivist Omar Cornut uploaded the demo of this game with the permission of Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel.
The demo though does not have all the features of the original game but you can experience the game which is available on Dropbox.
Omar Cornut explains “The stuff like two-player mode that have been shown in screenshots are not really in this build, There’s not a lot to it really, I borrowed the cartridge from Michel Ancel who kindly let me look at it and dump it”.
Omar Cornut is currently running a website which is based on gaming and archiving. He said that he is interested in a recent reveal linked to Sony PlayStation / Nintendo SNES crossover project.
In 1988 there was a prototype console which showed the link between Sony and Nintendo but was never put into production and was forgotten by both the companies. This concept was originally unveiled at Consumers Electronics Show (CES).
These prototypes are rarely found, an Imgur user DandieBold made a discovery recently and said: ” My dad worked for a company, apparently one of the guys he used to work with, I think his name was Olaf, used to work at Nintendo and when my dad’s company went bankrupt, my dad found it in a box of ‘junk’ he was supposed to throw out”.
This story is not yet verified and this project between the two companies never led to anything as Nintendo decided to partnership with Phillips.
