We could only wish we were playing this right now... maybe...
This game was never completed and/or given a public release.
As a result of this, keep in mind that the developers might have used or deleted some of the content featured here, had the game actually reached store shelves.

Jet Moto 2124 was supposed to be the futuristic followup to the highly underrated Jet Moto games, to be released in Spring 2000. Unfortunately, problems during development, as well as the relatively lackluster sales of Jet Moto 3, resulted in its cancellation.

A ROM of an early test build was acquired by Jet Moto Central and released on January 14th, 2014.

Unused Tracks

Atlantis II

Known in-game as ATLAN_2. This track uses a similar aesthetic as Atlantis, but has a completely different layout. According to developers, this stage was scrapped due to being too difficult for the first stage in the game, and was thus replaced with Atlantis.

Atlantis II can replace Atlantis with the use of the following code:

300C55EC 0041
300C55ED 0054
300C55EE 004C
300C55EF 0041
300C55F0 004E
300C55F1 005F
300C55F2 0032

Neo Rio

Known in-game as NEORIO. This track crashes the game when loaded.

JM2124 Neo Rio Trophy.png

An unused trophy for Neo Rio exists in the game's files.

Pacific Ocean

Known in-game as PACIFIC. This track exists as a near-duplicate of Atlantis II with only some minor aesthetic changes. The files are located after Neo Rio, indicating that Atlantis II was to be brought back after being cut with a slight change in its theme before being scrapped again.

Pacific Coast can replace Atlantis with the use of the following code:

300C55EC 0050
300C55ED 0041
300C55EE 0043
300C55EF 0049
300C55F0 0046
300C55F1 0049
300C55F2 0043
