This page details one or more prototype versions of Sonic CD (Sega CD).
Warning, as there are still people fooled by this: The so-called "409 prototype" is actually a hoax created by Sonic fan scene member Nemesis.

Prototype 712
Dated July 12th, 1993. Nearly complete, but still unfinished in places.

Prototype 806 logo.png  This prototype is documented on Hidden Palace.

Dated August 6th, 1993, exactly the same day as the final Japanese release.. A close-to-final prototype which came with cover art and was released as a demo CD in Japan. It only has Palmtree Panic playable by normal means, although the rest of the game can be played with the level select code.
