I have an old magazine that goes back around 1997, it had an interesting short article about Sonic Xtreme along with some screenshots of what appears to be a cutcene. I apologize in advance for the quality of the scans, the magazine is quite old: The article is written in Arabic "most likely translated from English" so I'll translate what it says, hopefully there won't be mistranslation: <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->What a shock, Sonic Xtreme has been canceled! Saturn owners will be torn once they hear that the promising 3D game Sonic Xtreme is been canceled. The game that's been in development in the United States and was expected to arrive before the holidays doesn't seem to promise of any exact release dates. Our sources in the United States told us that the managers working at SEGA didn't feel the game will be able to raise its head and scream "LOOK AT ME!" loud enough, so it's a wise decision which prevents an unsatisfying game from entering a losing battle facing NiGHTS, Crash Bandicoot, and Super Mario 64. However it's not a total loss since SEGA are switching the game from MegaDrive to Saturn. Reports are showing that Yuji Naka, the developer of Sonic and NiGHTS, has been working on it for so long and the improvements from the original game will include a 16-bits difference, better graphics (plus a 3D Sonic), two more levels as a reward and a whole lot of mediation and visual games. These screenshots are taken from the cutscenes, we'll take screenshots of the actual gameplay soon.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd--> The models look just like the ones used in Sonic 3D Blast cutcenes.
