Castlevania: Resurrection was cancelled by Konami in early 2000.

A playable version of a cancelled Castlevania game for the Sega Dreamcast appears to have surfaced, and it is believed to be the first time such video has been seen online. It is unknown what the person behind the YouTube video intends to do next, if anything. The overarching hope is that the disc’s contents will be shared online for preservation purposes, but for the time being, all we have is this footage.

In the late 1990s, Konami began development on Castlevania: Resurrection, a 3D action platformer starring Sonia and Victor Belmont. Oh, and it included time travel, which enabled the plot to take place in 1666, before the events of the original Castlevania.

According to legend, the game was revealed to a small number of members of the press in private at E3 1999. However, Konami secretly cancelled the proposal in March 2000. Most people thought the game had been lost to Father Time, but it all changed on April 4 when the YouTube channel cvr exists uploaded video of what seems to be an early version in play.

The three-minute-long clip shows sequences from several of the game’s stages, all loaded from a central menu. Damage also appears to be disabled. The date on the Dreamcast disc is “11-5-99.”

Per Jason Lee Elliott, one of the artists that worked on the title, the game was doomed from the start. “Most of the team had only ever worked on sports games so they had no idea how to make a 3D action platformer,” Elliott said. “The art team wasn’t very cohesive and couldn’t agree on a direction,” he added.
