FT: And then we did another deal with Acclaim where we were able to get the
rights to ... Batman Forever and a few others... and they were pretty big deals. It's
unfortunate that, you know, the system didn't get rolling enough to really see those
projects come to reality.

Coming attractions for Atari Jaguar
SUNNYVALE, Calif. - Jan. 6, 1995 - Batman Forever, Thea Realm Fighters and
Primal Rage top the list of coming attractions for the 64-bit Atari Jaguar
Interactive Multimedia system in 1995. "The focus at Atari for 1995
is great software and lots of it," said Sam Tramiel, CEO of Atari
Corporation. "We are working with over 200 developers to bring a wide
variety of new games to the 64-bit Atari Jaguar in 1995. The powerful
Jaguar technology can handle popular arcade games like Primal Rage or
provide the speed and graphics necessary for brand new games like Batman
Forever and Thea Realm Fighters."
Batman Forever, based on the much-anticipated Warner Bros.
movie scheduled for release this summer, pits the caped crusader and his sidekick Robin
against Gotham City villains Two-Face and the Riddler. The Atari Jaguar Batman Forever
game will incorporate the movie's characters and feature the films newly-designed costumes
and high-tech equipment.
Market research demonstrates that over 90% of the U.S. population is familiar with the
Batman character, so there will be wide appeal for the game. Batman Forever is scheduled
for delivery to stores late in the 3rd quarter.
