    "An early prototype of the unreleased Sega Mega Drive adaptation of Akira!Developed by Black Pearl Software sometime in late 1993 for a planned released in 1995, this game attempted to do a faithful adaptation of the original film by presenting various key scenes from the film in unique ways. The game features first person shooting, racing, platforming, and beat-em up segments to help illustrate the various points in the movie's story. Thought to have been lost since its initial debut in various media as well as the Summer Consumer Electronic Show (SCES 94) in 1994, an early prototype has been discovered and is presented for the first time in full!A huge thank you goes to Matsuda and an anonymous donor for giving us an opportunity to preserve and share this wonderful gem! Enjoy!Read more about this prototype here:https://bit.ly/2ZhfzYc"

    One of the best things I did was buying Kaneda's 1/6th scale bike a few years ago when it was still reasonable (if you call $400 reasonable) because now, it routinely sells for over $2000!

    That game wasn’t completely unreleased! It was actually a port of a really awful Amiga game, and can be found easily as a rom file for emulation on an Amiga emulator, but it’s really not worth the effort.
