Synopsis:

"Jack is Back

A restoration and remaster of a game lost to time for over 25 years, American Hero is an outrageous and unforgettable FMV game that lets you play as the star in an over-the-top 1990s Hollywood action movie.

Take on the role of Jack, a former intelligence officer brought out of retirement for one last mission to stop the villainous virologist Krueger, who plans to unleash a mind-controlling virus on the citizens of Los Angeles. Your spur-of-the-moment decisions will help or hinder Jack as he tries to find and protect the only scientist who has the cure for this deadly pathogen.

Originally designed for the Atari Jaguar CD as a “playable movie” with a more fluid presentation than the FMV games of its time, American Hero features the talents of professional actors, including Timothy Bottoms (The Last Picture Show, Johnny Got His Gun), Daniel Roebuck (The Fugitive, Final Destination), and Musetta Vander (O Brother, Where Art Thou, Wild Wild West). For this restoration, Timothy Bottoms reprises his role in newly recorded voiceover of Jack’s inner thoughts heard throughout the game."

American Hero, the long lost Atari's Jaguar CD FMV title, was resurrected and remastered by Ziggurat Games and released on multiple platforms this past November.  At the time of its release a VCS version was announced.  However, no release date was given.  There has been some speculation as to why the VCS version has been delayed - including that the VCS store is not set-up for the age verification needed for M rated content.  Whatever the reason for the delay, Ziggurat indicated via their Twitter that they still intend to release the game to Atari's platform.  From earlier today:
