Rayman creator Michel Ancel got the attention of many fans today after sharing two pictures on Instagram finding a once thought-lost original Rayman game for the Super Nintendo that was never commercially released.

The first photo shows the EPROM cartridge on a Super Nintendo console. Ancel starts his post by saying “Incroyable,” (French for Unbelievable), and follows with “We have found the old unique Rayman SNES ROM !!!! It was sleeping for 24 years ….. Time to wake it up !!!!”

The second photo shows the game in action. This time, Ancel mentioned about doing a Switch version of this game with a face with tears of joy emoji next to it.

The original Rayman game was supposed to be launched on the Super Nintendo, but the arrival of CD drives in consoles like the Sony PlayStation, Atari Jaguar and Sega Saturn made the developer release the game people remember in 1995, which offer much better graphics when compared to the SNES version.
