Sonic X-Treme was an unreleased video game for the Sega Saturn in the mid-1990s. Intended as a 3D platformer featuring Sonic the Hedgehog, the game faced development issues, including technical challenges and team changes. Despite promotional previews, the game was canceled in 1996, leaving fans without a 3D Sonic game on the Sega Saturn. This marked a transition period for the Sonic series until the release of “Sonic Adventure” on the Sega Dreamcast in 1998.
According to the SEGA Forever post, these are the original, actual screenshots used for promotion and magazine articles and not scans!

In these screenshots you can see two different levels and some of the enemies that were meant to be in the game. You can also see Sonic using the “Spin Slash”, a move that was intended to be in the final game.
It’s not every day that you get a chance to see stuff like this, so we’re very thankful to Sega for being able to dig these up from their archives.
