Earlier this month, someone put up a 1998 Nintendo Corporate CD-ROM for sale. The winner of the online auction was a Twitter user known as Zen, who paid the equivalent. $ 357 for the item, after discovering the disc contained footage from the canceled N64 project, EarthBound 64 – also known at the time as Mother 3.
So what does this give us? 25 seconds of never-before-seen footage of EarthBound 64 from the 1997 Space World event in Japan. There is no sound and the video is limited to 240p. This sequence is different from the clip we saw back in 2019 and 2006. And we have to admit that for a Nintendo 64 game, it looks pretty impressive in some footage.
Would you have been interested in playing this game at the time? Would you like to see a 3D EarthBound game one day? Leave a comment below.
