Sonic Sports (lost Sega 32X sports game; 1995)
Sonic Sports was to be a spin-off game planned to launch on the Sega 32X in 1995, with playable characters like Sonic and Tails. It was also planned to be the first appearance of Ristar in a Sonic game, predating Sonic & All Star Racing Transformed by 15 years, and was planned to have sports such as Basketball, Volleyball, and Soccer. The reason for its cancellation is unknown but was possibly due to the poor sales of the 32X, so it was possibly shelved by the end of the console's run.
No screenshots are known to exist, the only confirmation of the game's existence was in the March 1996 release of the now-defunct GamePlayers magazine, which claimed that Sega Development team Scavenger was working on other 32X games and a Sonic sports game for the 32x. The magazine also states that you should be on the lookout for the Sega Neptune, which was never released due to decreasing demand for the Genesis. As of 2018, no claims or screenshots have resurfaced, so it remains lost.
