Unreleased Super Nintendo Comic Book Adventure ‘Shadowhawk’ ROM Leaked Online

Shadowhawk-Super-Nintendo-Prototype-ROMIn the early 90s comic book creator Jim Valentino decided to take his most recent series Shadowhawk into the video game realm. Scheduled to hit the Super Nintendo sometime during the 90s, the game struggled to find a publisher and ended up lost to the depths of time. Despite this the game has shown small snippets of hope for fans in the last decade, however, it’s only as of now the game’s ROM has become widely available.

Taking control of the anti-hero vigilante Shadowhawk, this side-scroller plays out like many of the other 2D comic book video games we’ve seen over the years. With rooftop battles, multiple enemies to endure, and grappling hook mechanics, there isn’t exactly anything new Shadowhawk had to offer. Nevertheless it’s another Super Nintendo game we’re yet to experience and one that’s finally here.

From prototype pictures appearing online to a limited edition reproduction cartridge being pulled from the shelves, retro gamers have been ever so close to experiencing this comic book adventure on the original hardware for quite sometime. Through several recent submissions to SNESCentral, the game’s ROM has finally been made available to download - something that’s now playable on the original hardware using a Super Nintendo flash cartridge.
