I know it was announced but was later cancelled. My question is to whether or not anything was actually done on it. Is there an unfinished beta somewhere? Was it finished then cancelled like Saturn Snatcher? Or was it just vaporware?

Wouldn't Lufia be a Super Nintendo game?

It was supposed to be released for both, but Taito cancelled the Genesis version after a long delay. I'd like to know what was done (if anything) on it.

Much work was done on Lufia for Genesis when it was inexplicably canned. I'm pretty sure, however, that work on Lufia II for Genesis was never started.

Man I'd kill to have this game on Genesis. It broke my heart when it was canned.

"Coming December 1994!"

(two issues of EGM later)

"COMING SPRING 1995! WE PROMISE IT"S WORTH THE WAIT!" :sweat:

:lol:

Yet I still strongly believe the ROM is out there somewhere and it needs to be dumped on cart asap!

Sucks that the Genesis release was cancelled. The SNES release was completed, though (I have the Japanese cart).

Yep, you're right; it was the first one. I wonder how much got done? Enough for someone to finish?

I'd imagine enough was done for there to be a beta somewhere.

It's a pity it didn't come out. Lufia is an awesome RPG. Supposedly, the Genesis version was going to have some additions too.

Since this is the first thing from Sega-16 that comes up on a "lufia" + "sega genesis" search, I thought it'd be worth giving this thread closure and posting a link to the one where these questions got answered:

http://www.sega-16.com/forum/showthread.php?26883-No-one-mentioned-the-early-Lufia-Alpha-Rom-which-was-found

Bottom line, nothing beyond a simplistic demo was ever programmed.
