Panther was scheduled to be launched in 1991 at the same time as the SNES.
Technically it whips the poor SNES's bottom and it is a real shame that
Atari didn't release it. If they had it would have quite likely done nasty
things to Nintendo and Sega's profits and Atari would surely have been
the dominant force in the sixteen bit console world again.. well er possibly,
though I'm sure Atari would have still messed it up.
Two known games
were written for it, Crescent Galaxy and Raiden, both of which were subsequently
converted to the Jaguar upon the Panther's demise.
