Bubsy 3D is a 3D platform game released in October 1996 for the PlayStation as a sequel to Bubsy II. It was once planned for release on the Sega Saturn, but despite being advertised with a date of Winter 1996, was cancelled for unknown reasons. During development it was initially known as Bubsy III.

The Saturn version was set to be compatible with the 3D Control Pad[9].

Bubsy 3D was critically planned by the gaming press and is often considered to be one of the worst 3D platformers of all time.
