I thought the results were gonna be really, really shitty like Atari Halo or something, but I was actually impressed by how far they've gotten. M68k programming is something I'd like to try someday for fun so I think it's pretty cool, though I always wonder why people put so much effort into fan games that a publisher can cease and desist at any time

I could be making this up, but didn't SotN start as a 32X project?

why the fuck would anyone want this. i'm sure they'll reduce the amount of features, items, transformations, etc.

Cool, I've always wanted to see if I could make a Ferrari using only Ford parts.
Ford did pretty well with the Ford GT. ;)

Like the Mega Drive isn't s Playstation, the Ford also isn't a Ferrari. But it did pretty well even with a few cylinders less. 😉

As a technical problem and a challenge the project is very interesting, and I respect that, but in 2021 it’s not something I’m going to get hyped about.

Yeah, looking at his GG Shinobi video, I don't think we'll see this project finished anytime soon.

If you want an interesting Genesis port, check out Cave Story in the meantime.

I can't imagine being able to pull off a soul steal with the crappy D-pad.

Looks neat, but I am more interested in the Resident Evil port on Genesis from awhile back.

Or how about the 8-bit NES games with updated visuals instead?

It's not meant like a straight port metroidvania, but linear gameplay like the traditional castlevanias featuring Maria or Alucard. In a sense it is something new.

Call it a different name then?

Jesus, this sounds terrible. Like, the Saturn version was a step down, what the hell is the mega drive gonna do?

I'd like to see a Mega Drive port of The Last of Us. Fuck Castlevania SOTN.
There is a guy working on a downgrade of resident evil for the mega drive. Bio Evil
