Glover 2 was originally supposed to happen. Interactive Studios, the developer of the first game, was originally signed on to create the sequel. But as you may know, Glover 2 ended up seeing cancellation.

Believe it or not, Glover 2’s cancellation came about due to the first title. Publisher Hasbro ended up ordering 300,000 units since Nintendo had a special on N64 cartridges at the time. Rather than going for 150,000 units – a standard amount which was also suggested by Interactive Studios – Hasbro went with 300,000 units at a slightly reduced cost.
