    Release Dates:

    • None (Cancelled)

    What was meant to be Sonic's big jump into 3D, ended up being scrapped before it could get on the shelves. Sonic X-treme is one of the most infamous cancelled Sonic games that was meant to release for the 1996 holiday season, but it was sadly cancelled due to a multitude of reasons such as company politics, increasing pressure for the game developers, and game engine issues.


    Note that these are ONE of the many storylines that were documented by Chris Senn, one the game's designers, on his website , the Sonic X-Treme Compendium -

    Sonic has until sundown to make his date with Tiara, the beautiful Manx Kitten-Princess. Their choice of a romantic spot makes for an adventurous journey as obstacles and enemies of all sorts plague Sonic’s path. The longer it takes him, the darker it gets and the more miffed Tiara will be in the end... Regardless of how long Sonic's trek lasts, he’s in for a BIG surprise in the end. Good luck, Blue Boy!!!

    Sonic wants to meet up with Tiara for a date, though the distance between them presents a bit of a problem. Sonic hangs in his Knothole crib, while Manx-baby chills in her pop's Kingdom a thousand miles away!!! Sonic's got to race into and over many secret hills and valleys to get to his love. Tiara waits calmly, but cameo footage reveals her increasing impatience. The longer he takes, the more miffed she'll be when he arrives. Sonic figures a little necklace endowed with 7 certain Chaos emeralds would make a nifty gift to cheer her up. Unfortunately, via his Sneaky Spy Satellite, egg-boy Robotnik gets wind of Sonic's chivalric endeavor and sets out to stop him.

    Dr. Robotnik decides that it's a great time for his new SuperDooper MegaRay Cannon. Tested on impulse power, the Cannon beamed a secluded forest in Mobius, causing its trees to rip from the ground and float in various orientations in the sky. Filled with devilish glee after a few more successful experiments, Robotnik schemes a way to stop Sonic from stealing the Emeralds AND to trap him forever! Having developed a spring- switch device to control the rotation of the floating walkways, Dr. Robotnik plans a series of puzzles and then sets the Cannon to FULL power, zapping the entire planet! When the boom and flash of light fades, Mobius is transformed! Huge chunks of wood, plant, metal and even whole houses, cars, etc.-- All ripped up, floating angellically in various angles in the sky! What a trip!

    So now, to complicate the distance/time issue, Sonic has a warped "twisted" world to navigate through that's filled with Robotnik's badniks! And to think that all Sonic wants is a nice, quiet good old-fashioned date! It's going to be more than half the fun getting there...

    Gameplay Mechanics

    Camera Style-

    Sonic X-treme would've featured a fisheye lens camera which would've gave players a wide-angle view. The levels would rotate in a fixed center of gravity, granting Sonic the ability to run up walls.

    Additional Playable Characters-

    Alongside Sonic, 3 other characters were planned to be playable in this game. These characters are Knuckles, Tails, and the character planned to be featured in the game, Tiara Boobowski. Sonic would have the fisheye lens perspective, Tails would be in a first-person flight mode, and Knuckles and Tiara would have the traditional side-view platforming, alongside a top-down view.
