We recently reported on the news that Sega's unreleased Neptune console – a Mega Drive and 32X combined – is getting an unofficial resurrection in FPGA form thanks to a Brazilian company called GamesCare.

The GF1 Neptune will also get its own exclusive games, the first of which has been officially shown off.

Sword Of The Apocalypse is a 2D side-scrolling action platformer which reminds us a little of Sega's Shinobi series. While the footage has been tagged with 'Sega Genesis', the trailer says that this particular game will be "exclusive" to the GF1 Neptune.

We've since had confirmation from the developer that the game will run on standard Mega Drive hardware too, but when running via a 32X (or on the GF1 Neptune) it will be "better".

In other news, it seems that the GF1 Neptune is getting a Sega Master System FPGA core:
