Cancelled Rayman SNES game now playable via emulator


Get excited!

The Rayman SNES prototype is lost no more, after a game archivist has made it available as a ROM.

Archivist and developer Omar Cornut borrowed Michel Ancel’s own ROM to create one playable on an SNES emulator. He’s recently placed the ROM on Dropbox, allowing anyone that can handle an .SFC extension the chance to play.

“The stuff like two-player mode[s] that have been show[n] in screenshots are not really in this build,” Omar explained to Kotaku. “Perhaps the ROM contains secrets, in which case homebrew hackers will hopefully unearth them soon.”

Ancel recovered the original Rayman SNES ROM back in October last year.
