Nice find!

From his responses, it seems to be the working title given before Diddy Kong RACING...

But it brings up something else:

It made me think- At what point in a game's development do they decide to greenlight the production of certain items like these; almost knowing full well that it will change and differ from the end product?

@Culbert,
Although Metroid 64 was just a rumor and a very nice idea, i don't think Nintendo would've had the correct amount of time to create something like that on N64. However, we do get to see the possibilities with Samus in Super Smash Bros.

If it was possible, the best result could've been doing it in a "platform style". :yeah:
Maybe they were afraid it wouldn't compare to Super Metroid.
Out of every Metroid, it really was, and still is one of the best in the franchise!

Sydney 2000...

This game was released on PS1, PS2, Dreamcast, and on PC. Developed by ATD. Published by EIDOS.
Aside from the FMV, it looks even better than the PS1 version.
Out of all unreleased N64 games, this one is the only "high profile" game.
With the eyes of the world watching, the IOC (International Olympic Comitee) have their hands in these games in some way. It says that they even "own" these games.
Even though there are Olympic games good and bad, wouldn't endorsed/sponsored/owned IOC games need a good reason to not get released?

What exactly happened here??
Does anyone have more insight on this?

This game would have been awesome. I was dissapointed when it was cancelled. Huge potential!

Can't seem to get the url to work.

I really wanted to see Animal Bancho on N64. That turned into Cubivore for Gamecube.
