Your most wanted video game translation/release/sequel/completion/dump


Recommended Posts

Since Marble Madness II was finally dumped after a wait of 20 whole years the other day, and just a few weeks before that the 2001 version of Duke Nukem Forever finally got leaked, what games are you looking forward to actually playing someday that are either lost, unplayable without some kind of translation, or otherwise stuck in development hell?

There were very, VERY few copies built, as they were designed to be run in a rare, Japan-exclusive motion cabinet called the IDYA. The MAME team has been searching for a copy for years. New footage has recently surfaced:
