Bubsy 3D was a PlayStation game developed by Eidetic and published by Accolade. It was released in November 1996 and is considered by many to be one of the worst games ever made. It was also the last game in the Bubsy franchise for over 10 years, until Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back was announced in 2017.[1]

A Sega Saturn version, known as Bubsy III in development, was also planned and would have apparently been based off the original Sega 32X development models. It was slated to come out in Winter 1996, but was delayed to Spring 1997 and eventually cancelled outright due to the failure of the PS version.[2]

Currently, no prototypes of the Sega Saturn version have resurfaced and besides articles mentioning it coming out on the Saturn, little proof exists of it.

Read up on its development history. Honestly, they had very little time in which to make it and they were only an extremely small studio, contracted to put out this game to compete with the likes of Mario 64, Crash, Spyro, etc.

I had no idea it was built with the 32x in mind. In that case, the terrible looking environments make perfect sense, as pretty much any 3D environment on the 32x looked like that (Knuckles' Chaotix special stages jump to the front of my mind)

If this game was to be released on the Sega Saturn, it would have brought the Saturn down even faster than before.

I'm glad the Saturn didn't have to deal with this.

He did have a copy of the PlayStation 1 version, which is widely available, but not the Sega Saturn version which is currently so far still lost.

'It was also the last game in the Bubsy franchise, effectively "killing" it.'

this tidbit should be removed, due to the new bubsy game that was announced fairly recently.
