SegaSonic Cosmo Fighter Galaxy Patrol Has Been Dumped

SegaSonic Cosmo Fighter Galaxy Patrol Has Been Dumped

by February 6, 2017 10 comments

It was only a matter of time after all the momentum that this had last year, but the last obscure Sonic 90s arcade game is about to lose that obscurity thanks to the emulation scene.

There was only one Sonic arcade game left from the 90s that had not been dumped yet. And that was SegaSonic Cosmo Fighter Galaxy Patrol. Well, that is no longer the case. An “anonymous donator” managed to pick up the arcade machine and send it to the MAME emulator team, who announced that the game has been dumped as part of their emulator’s 20th anniversary celebrations. A release is not known yet, but you will now be able to play every obscure Sonic arcade title that SEGA made.

A mystery in the Sonic universe is now solved.

    Holy crap, we never even had a single screenshot of this game, and now out of the blue, it’s dumped? Wow.

    I am seriously wondering if this game is actually enjoyable or it is “up there” with Sonic Schoolhouse as far as cringe factor is concerned. Either way, I wonder if Lou would be willing to do a livestreamed playthrough. I am certain many would watch this one regardless of its actual quality (or lack thereof).

    We still won’t be able to play every obscure Sonic arcade title that SEGA made until SegaSonic Bros gets dumped which sadly looks unlikely. the way that fell through our fingers and how everyone proceeded to completely forget about it is still frustrating

      Because SegaSonic Bros was a prototype game that was never published.

      I don’t count that game.

        Believe it or not, there were in-field prototypes that were being used by the Japanese public. Currently, one of those prototype arcade units is owned by a “ShouTime”, an arcade board collector. He has yet to dump the game online, though.
