Unreleased Sega Dreamcast 'ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth' Port Found On Katana Development Kit

Unreleased-ToeJam-And-Earl-3-Dreamcast-PortThe ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth we all know on the Microsoft Xbox was originally set to funk its way on the Sega Dreamcast. Due to the failure of Sega's console, development of the Dreamcast version was unfortunately halted and shifted elsewhere. As of today though, one collector seems to have stumbled upon the game's original code for Sega's system after purchasing an old Dreamcast development kit.

To many gamers, the fact that the third ToeJam & Earl title didn't end up on a Sega console was a huge disappointment. Having said that though, given that the game was not quite as ground-breaking nor unusual as it's first and second outings, it was something Sega-fanatics were willing to let slide. This, however, may all change following this recent prototype discovery.

Having recently purchased a Sega Dreamcast Katana Development Kit, ZakhooiTM of the AssemblerGames messageboard was so amazed to discover the unfinished ToeJam & Earl title on his new hardware that he headed online to share the discovery. Pictures of the game have since been shared on the thread he has started, showcasing some early development screenshots of how the game in action.

ZakhooiTM also went on to state that the game's code has been backed up several times in different places, ensuring that this title will be preserved for generations to come. Furthermore, it has been hinted that a community fundraiser may be opened up in the near future to look at releasing the game's code for all to see soon. Until then, be sure to head on over to find out more about this discovery as more and more information is shared with the retro gaming community.

Enjoyed this game a lot on Xbox, much more so than number 2 on the MD (which was completely not my cup of tea)
