Top 10 Cancelled Video Games

The Top Ten

Star Wars 1313

An M rated, dark, high-budget origin story of Boba Fett. What more could this get? Unfortunately, after Lucasarts was sold to Disney, this was canned. Instead we got two abysmal remakes of amazing games that cost $70 each. I'm never playing THOSE versions of Battlefront.

Star Wars 1313 was going to be a grittier Star Wars game, which was going to be rated M apparently, and early footage looked incredible and it revolved around Boba Fett in, what it looked like, his coming of age. It could have been a great game, then Disney bought the rights and the project was canned. What Star Wars game did we get? An unfinished game which cost $110. I didn't buy the new Battlefront.

This was the biggest loss of the Disney takeover in my opinion. So long my bounty hunting dreams

Never really was into Star Wars but the game looked fun to play.

Gotham by Gaslight

It was Batman, in the victorian times- where the villain was Jack The Ripper- what else do I need to say- yes please, shower me with this awesome game.

Remember the Batman Arkum series? The only good Batman games ever? Well Gotham by Gaslight was the original one but was cancelled. It would have been a good game but at least you can have fun to Arkum City and so on.


The aspect that was special about this game was that Steven Spielberg, the man himself was involved. A Spielberg video-game, please, that sound like Heaven. The gameplay footage looked great. If this game was released and it was incredible, it could have possibly been the next step of the Video Game industry, like I said, it had the man himself, Steven Spielberg.

Sonic X-Treme

Sounded awesome because I love skateboarding games. A shame they canceled it. At least we got sonic riders.

This was gonna be a new Sonic game for the SEGA Saturn with new characters, multiple endings depending on your actions, interesting gameplay, and so on. But it was cancelled because Yuji Naka was a mean dirtbag. But instead we get...Sonic R.

This would have been a great 3D game for Classic Sonic. Modern Sonic has his own 3D adventures starting at Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast, so why couldn't Sega make a classic Sonic styled game for the Saturn? Sonic X-treme would have been a great competitor between Super Mario 64 & Crash Bandicoot.

Crash Bandicoot Evolution

Crash Bandicoot has had a ton and I mean a ton of cancelled games, from Mark Cerny's to the Crash Team Racing remake to Landed to A new PS4 game to Twinsanity 2. Basically what I'm trying to say is that Crash Bandicoot has had a lot of cans. However, in my opinion, Evolution seemed the most interseting one out of the bunch. From the concept art and the idea itself, it seemed like a unique Crash game, which is what we needed, especially after 2 not good Crash Game (WOC and NK). It seemed like a Ratchet and Clank Crash game, which was awesome, that's why it was cancelled and turned to Twinsanity. Twinsanity is a good game but Evolution seemed way more interesting.


Nintendo was maturing a little around the time this was cancelled, and I wish it wasn't.

Sadness was planned for the Nintendo Wii, from what I have seen, it looked like a much darker, a much sinister and a more emotional Nintendo game. It was going to be a physiological horror game. Imagine how the game could have been like.

Conker's Other Bad Day

Conkers Bad Fur Day is one awesome game, from the story to the South Park like humour to the unique characters to the fantastic gameplay to the giant singing poo and parodying other movies and all the violence in a Nintendo game. It was awesome and Bad Fury Day is one of my favourite video-games ever. So, when I hear there's a sequel, I get excited, especially when its gonna parody Terminator. However, Microsoft bought Rareware and the game never saw the light of day. However, I'm glad that this wasn't made on the Microsoft Rareware, Nuts and Bolts anyone?

Donkey Kong Racing
Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned
Super Mario 128

This looked really cool, controlling 128 Marios. Too bad it was canceled.

The Contenders

Star Fox 2
Highlander The Game
Silent Hills

This game looked amazing but stupid Konami just HAD to give it up!

Silent hill 2 is an incredible game suggest you play that

I actually have not played Silent Hill (I know I'm missing on a lot). However, I played P.T (Playable Teaser) of the game and it looked smashing excellent. The atmosphere was dense and it was creepy. The story loooked suspenseful. I was gonna get this game. Next thing I hear, it's cancelled. Why? I guess I'll play the other Silent Hill games.

Project H.A.M.M.E.R

A beat-em-up for the Wii, it was canned and eventually turned into a terrible Wii U game that cost $40. I'm looking at you, Devil's Third.

Mega Man Online

This was the game that was suppose to explain how the X series began and explain what happens to Classic Megaman, Roll, and the others. Sadly it got cancelled.

Jak 4

I'm a huge Jak and Daxter fan, so when they announced they cancelled Jak IV, I was devastaed, mainly because The Lost Frontier was a terrible game. Jak IV was gonna be developed by Naughty Dog again and it was gonna be on the PS3. However it was changed to The Last Of Us (an incredible game) after they felt like what they made wasn't Jak And Daxter- look at the concept arts. That is actually a brave move and I respect them for that, although, please just make Jak IV.

Division 9
Geist Force
Langrisser Schwarz
Metroid 64
Ghosts 'N Goblins Online

B.C could have been Microsofts great exclusive game other than Halo. It looked like an ambitious game, it also had dinosaur's [Insert Jeff Goldblum impression]. It could have been a great game, who knows?

Prey 2
Dragon Ball Online

This was the original Dragon Ball Xenoverse. You would do almost everything Xenoverse did...ALMOST.

Kuma Soldier
PC Cocoron
Space Fantasy Zone
Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots
Aquario of the Clockwork
Dirty Harry
Fallout Online

This was SUPPOSED to be an MMORPG from Interplay before Bethesda bought the rights to the fallout franchise. I think Bethesda would do a better job at this thought this would still be cool to play.

Mega Man Legends 3

All mega man legends fan are now upset in a corner because of this. But oh don't worry Capcom gave us a Tron Bonnie spin-off and not a third Mega Man Legends game ARE YOU KIDDING ME CAPCOM?!

Instead we got Mighty No. 9, one of the worst games in existence.

Dancing Eyes
Saints Row: Drive-By
Bonk: Brink of Extinction

This is why konami can't have nice things

True Fantasy Live Online
Project Dr4wn to Life (3DS)

Nintendo was actually means to be a co-publisher of this game, and 5th Cell denied all of it when it was cancelled

If Nintendo had just aquired the IP themselves, it would habe been running smoothly and we would get what would have been the best 5th Cell game ever.

It was the fourth official game in the franchise, it even had a demo on the 3DS EShop. The game was supposed to be a direct sequel to The Next Chapter, and have Jowee and Mari as playable characters. It was cancelled and the demo was taken down, however, after THQ sold the IP to 505 Games.

Diddy Kong Pilot
Goldeneye 007 (Virtual Boy)

Goldeneye 007 imagine it there's a Virtual Boy version of it my answer is yes there is but is cancelled you know how the Virtual Boy sucks. The Goldeneye 007 on the Virtual Boy is a typical racing game but when Virtual Boy was a failure the Goldeneye 007 Virtual Boy fades away. By the way there are pictures of it

The Virtual Boy isn't as bad as you think. The red graphics are easy on the eyes, the 3d is better then the 3DS 3d, and it has some really good games. A lot of people who haven't played it hate it for no reason.

Super Mario 64 2

This turner into 128 which turner into pikmin

I want the legend back.

Ever wondered a SMB 64 sequel? Well let me introduce you to the Super Mario 64 2 for the N64DD there are no much information on it but there's a prototype of it

This is Vegas
TimeSplitters 4

Is sort-of still being made but it does not have a studio behind it and had been previously cancelled several times

It was originally going to be announced in 2007, but instead what we got was Haze which was panned for a more popular demand that scraped because Crytek were not sure who to have on the cover to sell the game.

Virtua Hamster
Super Mario RPG 2

Eventually turned into Paper Mario.


Really wished this game was made, especially since the name was teased during the ending of Banjo-Tooie (sorry for mentioning a spoiler). We got Nuts & Bolts, but even so, I would love to see a proper sequel to the series. Time will tell, I suppose.

Instead, we got Nuts & Bolts... which is really terrible.

We're still waiting after almost twenty years, Rareware.

Captain Falcon: F-Zero JRPG (3DS)

It was supposed to be a dark, PG-13 rated, emotional and action-packed origin story of Douglas J. Falcon, who, in this game, had discovered his powers. But it was canned because Miyamoto couldn't find the right story director for it.

Super Mario's Wacky Worlds

Would've been a lot better than Hotel Mario.

Doesn't this sound like a much more fun game than Hotel Mario?

If the SNES-CD was released this game & Hotel Mario would've been some games for it.

Grand Theft Auto 64

We all know that the Race N Chase is the prototype of Grand Theft Auto but there's another one that may Grand Theft Auto Fans doesn't recognize its Grand Theft Auto 64 this Grand Theft Auto was intended for the N64 but it was cancelled. The gameplay is like Grand Theft Auto 1 and it just a improved version of it so don't bother buying it except if you are a hardcore Grand Theft Auto Fan

Thrill Kill
Halo DS

This would have been so, so cool to see.

This would have been so cool to see.

I Don't think this is even real
