Insert Credit points out Climax cut the link and removed a wallpaper image from 2006 teasing about a remake of Landstalker. Climax hasn’t said anything about the PSP remake of Landstalker for years so it’s hardly surprising that it may have been quietly scrapped. At some time this was actually in development. Brandon has an interesting story where he spoke to Kan Naito, one of the original members on the Sega Genesis team and the Vice President of Climax Entertainment, about transitioning the Genesis’ isometric view to a full 3D world. In case you’re wondering what the 3D world may have looked like checkout this video from Tokyo Game Show. Landstalker still lives on as a Virtual Console game and spiritually in Steal Princess.
