Lobo is a cancelled 1996 fighting video game that was developed by Ocean of America. The game is based on the DC comic book series of the same name, and was due to be released in the Winter of 1996 on both Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis. However, it was cancelled at the last minute.
The game uses pre-rendered graphics, similar to Donkey Kong Country or Mortal Kombat.
In September of 2009, the Sega Genesis port of the game was found and leaked by the SEGASaturno community and years later, on October 21, 2014, plans were made to ship a limited run of reproduction carts of the SNES version to NintendoAge.com.
UPDATE 2/13/15: A limited run of the SNES version is ready to ship, and you can grab a copy of the game before it sells out.
UPDATE 7/1/15: Sell out!
