Top 10 Cancelled Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Star Wars 1313

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.

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.

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

2 Gotham by Gaslight

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.

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.

3 Sonic X-Treme

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.

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.

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


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.

5 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.

6 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?

7 Sadness

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.

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

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

Super Mario 128 was cancelled for unknown reason. Super Mario 128 is like a puzzle type game with Mario which the gameplay is all about throwing blocks away to save cousins of Mario?! I didn't know Mario have so many cousins but sadly it was cancelled

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

The Contenders
11 Star Fox 2

I wish this game was released! It would be so much better then Red Alarm!

12 Highlander The Game
13 Silent Hills

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.

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

14 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.

15 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.

16 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.

17 Division 9
18 Geist Force
19 Langrisser Schwarz
20 Metroid 64

The Nintendo 64 is usually considered the best Nintendo console, I can see why (The Legend Of Zelda OOT/MM, Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, Conkers Bad Fur Day and more). Imagine if metroid was added to that mix of the great Nintendo 64 games. However, Samus was in Super Smash Bros and we got an excellent Metroid Game on the gamecube- Metroid Prime, so it's all good.
