Footage of Cancelled Akira Game for Sega Genesis Surfaces

A video archive of CES 1994 (Consumer Electronics Show) showing footage of a cancelled Akira game for the Sega Genesis has surfaced online, courtesy of PS Nation, who decided to film their experience at the show all those years back.

Further research shows the game was being developed by Black Pearl Software (developer of the SNES’ Total Carnage port), and THQ (you know who they are). The game, which was discovered some time ago but had very little known about it, looks exactly as you’d expect an Akira game to look like.

You can hop aboard the nostalgia train and view the footage here:
