Phantom Gear Coming Soon to Sega Genesis
Phantom Gear is a new original game for the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive. We want to deliver an old school experience that takes inspiration from different games, both modern games or games from our childhood, like Shantae, Kirby, Megaman X, Castlevania, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, Ristar, Gunstar Heroes and Monster World IV, to name a few. And we need your help to make it real.
Our plan is to finish this game and release it as a beautiful physical edition complete with cart, box, and manual, offering the best quality possible. The game will be delivered in a multi-region cartridge compatible with any Sega Genesis / Mega Drive (PAL, NTSC and NTSC-J) console versions I, II, and III.
We want to show the true power of the Genesis / Mega Drive. Like other retro developers, we want to take it to the next level and push our favorite consoles past their limits. And now, using current technologies and all the documentation and techniques discovered and created by the homebrew scene, we can achieve that.
Mega Cat Studios have released a new trailer for Phantom Gear.
