* DevelopmentHell: The game was originally intended for the 64DD in 1996, but was then switched to the PlayStation in 1997 - the game itself was finally released in 2000, when the console successors were on their way or already out. By the time it came out in North America, the Gamecube was quite literally ''just around the corner''.
