Lobo is an unreleased Mega Drive fighting game developed by Ocean of America. It is based off the DC Comics book series of the same name, and was due to be released in the Winter of 1996. A Super Nintendo version was also planned, but both copies were cancelled last minute.

The game uses pre-rendered graphics, similar to Donkey Kong Country or Mortal Kombat, and also makes use of the Mega Drive Six Button Control Pad.

A prototype of the Mega Drive version was released by SEGASaturno.com in September 2009 after generating 390€. It is unknown if any Super NES copies of the game exist. In this prototype there are six playable characters; Lobo, Shaola, Nitro, Dox, Kringle and Loo, each with their own stage. Only Lobo is available during the "Solo" mode.


Development began at Park Place Productions but was likely finished by Ocean of America.
