Comix Zone (TBD), sometimes referred to as Comix Zone 3D, was a planned three-dimensional Saturn follow-up to the 1995 Mega Drive beat-'em-up game Comix Zone.[1]


There were no concrete plans [for a Comix Zone sequel] at that time, but we left it open for that possibility. I even made some quick prelim storyboards for how the Comix Zone concept could work in 3D on the Saturn, but ultimately Sega wanted us to work on a Sonic property next.

Designed alongside Sonic Saturn at Sega Technical Institute's newly-established satellite office STI Burbank, some concept art and early gameplay designs were explored, but the game ultimately never left the planning stage.[1] Ultimately, Sega of America wanted the studio to focus solely on the Sonic franchise, and the game was permanently shelved.[2]
