Cancelled sequel to Waku Waku 7
Murikov
I've just seen this on NG.com and I'm quite surprised this news didn't really reach the western community for three years.

Apparently Sunsoft was working on an official sequel to Waku Waku 7 and the game even reached pre-production stage. But the project was eventually cancelled and all that's left are some sketches and artwork showing new characters.

It even was supposed to feature some characters from Galaxy Fight.

That's what the source says about the artwork:

Shin Waku Waku 7 is an unreleased arcade game that was in development probably during the Neo-Geo days, although it’s still unclear weither it’s was aimed for SNK’s machine or not since it hadn’t been officially announced.
These design docs made their first appearance on Twitter via Sunsoft’s official account a couple of days before the Sunsoft Retro-ten held on December 6, 2014.
It seems that the late Kouki Kita / 喜多 綱毅 (who worked on Waku Waku 7 and Galaxy Fight) was chara-designer on the game. One of the characters -Roomi- comes from Galaxy Fight, another fighting game developed by Sunsoft for the Neo-Geo and released one year before the original Waku Waku 7.
In 1998, Sunsoft released another fighting game - Astra Superstars- but the game runs on another hardware: the Sega ST-V.

I like the character designs, too bad it probably didn't get passed this stage of development.

Interesting stuff. I really like both Waku Waku 7 and Galaxy fight. Seems like it would have been an update of Waku Waku 7 with some new characters. I assume Waku Waku was never the biggest selling game (Japanese release only) so maybe partly why it was cancelled.
