Bentley made an appearance as a playable character in ''Atari Karts'' for the UsefulNotes/AtariJaguar. Afterwards Bentley seemed to disappear from existence barring ''Crystal Castles''[='=] appearance in a few compilations. Years later, a homebrew FanSequel in the form of a PlatformGame for the UsefulNotes/Atari7800 titled ''Bentley Bear's Crystal Quest'' from developer [=PacManPlus=] was announced, which is planned work with the Atari 7800 XM to give the system an increased amount of memory and most notably more advanced sound hardware through the Pokey audio chip- pushing the system beyond it's limits.

Needless to say the 7800 XM has spent quite an amount of time in DevelopmentHell, and it it unknown when it, along with ''Crystal Quest'' will be released to the public, if ever.
