Prerelease of: Sonic the Hedgehog CD
System: Sega Mega-CD

Found by: Zero-Chan

The 1993-08-06 build of Sonic the Hedgehog CD is a near-final prototype of Sonic the Hedgehog CD for the Sega Mega-CD, built on the same day as the final Japanese release on August 6th, 1993.

This prototype is a Japanese build that, unlike other prototypes, comes complete with cover art and was released in stores as a demo CD in Japan. The prototype only has the entirety of Palmtree Panic available, but this can be circumvented with a level select code.


This prototype was discovered and dumped by Zero-Chan, and was released by drx via torrent on August 31st, 2008. Because nobody's seeding the torrent, though, it's considered dead. However, a download link was posted on the forums. Though the forum post has been deleted since, the file was downloaded in time, and now it is provided here.
