There is a lot more discussion and speculation about this over at Sega-16 since some of the people involved with the game are posting over there as well. In a nutshell this is what is being told to everyone in regards to what you saw in the video.
Basically, what was shown was an early beta supposedly due to two reasons:
1. Fonzie (WM Games) doesn't want to show anything that could be considered a spoiler to the game. He is pretty ocd about that stuff so this isn't a far stretch. So apparently an older version of the game in progress was being shown.
2. Apparently the game is done and even manufacturing is done, but due to an issue getting the completed product from the manufacturer, there aren't any actual completed game carts to show.
The 2nd explanation I'm not buying into completely, mainly because I don't know of any developer who wouldn't have several revisions of their game burned onto flash carts or prototype PCBs they have made up for testing. So you would think they would have at least some pretty late build version of the game that would demo enemies and the like available to display.
As for explanation 1, if it was an older version build of the game... then why does it have a 2018 copyright on it? Game has been in development for many years and the initial trailers that were show during the last large pre-order did show what looked like a more functional game in progress and that was well over a year ago...
Fonzie also stated something about having an issue with the PCB he used for demo purposes as also being part of the problem. But again, I would think you would test this beforehand and showing it to the public?
It was also noticed that Fonzie didn't seem to let anyone else demo the game besides himself, and in nearly all videos taken, once the graphic glitches begin, the console is turned off shortly afterwards.
I honestly don't know what to think but I do know that I can't really keep track of it anymore LOL!
Like Pier Solar before it...I guess I will continue to wait until I forget about it completely, and then that is when it will show up in my mailbox.
