Unreleased Konami Castlevania Resurrection SEGA Dreamcast
Konami abruptly canceled Castlevania: Resurrection for the SEGA Dreamcast in March 2000, and if released, it would have been the seventeenth title of the series as well as third title to enter the 3D realm. The storyline, set in 1666, followed Sonia Belmont and a new character, Victor Belmont, an 1800s vampire hunter who had abandoned his lineage. It starts directly before Simon Belmont’s adventure in the original Castlevania. Read more to see a prototype build shown to executives behind closed doors at trade shows.

Tesla Semi Test Track
The Tesla Semi appears to be near production-ready after it was spotted at a Fremont test track without a trailer. What makes this test so special is that the Semi is reportedly the first Tesla to have the new 4680 cells, which pack more active battery material into the casing for a 5× improvement in energy storage and a 6× increase in power. By simply scaling up to the pack, the new jumbo cells (46 mm in diameter and 80 mm in height) alone produces a 16% increase in range. Read more for three videos and additional information.

We could be just a little over a week from the official Apple AirPods 3 launch, but like usual, there are always leaks beforehand. This one comes from 52 Audio and allegedly shows the production model, along with the charging case.

Technology leaker Jon Prosser revealed that the redesigned 2021 Apple iMacs will come in Silver, Space Gray, Green, Sky Blue, and Rose Gold. Since the public has not yet gotten a glimpse at the new design, he partnered with Concept Creator for these renders that show how the colors might look on the new chassis. They should feature slimmer bezels and possibly the all-new M1X chip. The latter is Apple’s second ARM-based processor built for Mac, which is essentially a speedier version of the same basic processor with more processor cores and more graphics cores.

The main screen measures in at 8-inches (2200 x 2480 resolution) and the secondary display will be a 6.45-inch (1160 x 2700 resolution) on the outside.

Subaru BRZ GT300 Super GT Race Car
The factory Subaru BRZ isn’t designed to be a track car, but the automaker’s new BRZ GT300 most certainly is. No specifications have been revealed, but some are speculating that it will use a highly modified 2.4L flat-4, paired with a sequential transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. How much power is yet to be seen, though the 2022 Subaru BRZ’s 2.4L flat-4 generates 228 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, mated to either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
