Wirehead is a full motion video game for the Sega Mega-CD. It was only released in North America.

Wirehead was originally set to be released similarly to Fahrenheit, in that the package would contain both a Mega-CD copy of the game, and a Mega-CD 32X variant. The Mega-CD 32X version was announced at Summer CES 1994, but was ultimately scrapped for unknown reasons. Had it been released, the Mega-CD 32X version of Wirehead would have debuted during the launch window of the 32X system.
