Lost Levels is at it again. For those who don’t know, Lost Levels is a site who’s focus is bringing out the story of games that were cancelled and never released. We’ve collected a number of excellent interviews with actual developers and articles that have a lot of first hand information concerning the games in question.
The latest article covers the unreleased NES Earthbound. Released in Japan as “Mother”, the game was fully localized and translated into English, but never released in the US. When a copy of this “Americanized” version apeared on the Internet years ago, people questioned it’s authenticity. Now the story can be settled once and for all. Enjoy.
