Hello /vr/ lets talk about some famous cancelled games it's a really great topic and with companies like Nintendo must is still unknown due to secrecy.

The Games I know of are
>Mother 3: Fall of the Pig King
This games story was done but the project was moved from the snes to the 64 to the 64dd then cancelled. The Thread image is from the beta

>Super Mario 64 2 meant for the DD
This game was killed about half way through production because of the DD's failure

Star Fox 2 and sonic xtreme

Jungle Taitei for the N64, it was being developed by nintendo with Miyamoto as the producer.

Super Mario's Wacky Worlds
It was the first attempt at a sequel to super Mario world and there is a very rough Rom floating around online.

This was an attempt at 3d Mario but was quickly scrapped untill the n64

Here's an unreleased game no one talks about for the SNES: Nightmare Busters.

There's a pretty much finished version somewhere on the Internet. You're a leprechaun that fights evil etc. It plays similar to Contra or NeoGeo's Spin Masters.

Also it was released legally in an SNES cart in early 2013 for a wopping sixty bucks. If you're into that.

>> No.1372000

No, it did. Mario 64 was originally going to be a game for the SNES using the Super FX2 chip, but when Miyamoto realized that the SNES controller didn't work the way he wanted it to, and since they were designing the N64 at the time, he built the N64 controller around what he'd need for a true 3D Mario game.

If only the industry could mature enough for there to be a market for this kind of stuff. Nintendo could release a compendium or series of limited editions containing what they have of these projects. The film industry does it all the time with deleted scenes.

One I would like to see is the rejected Super Mario World 2.

It would have had a track editor.

Super Mario Wacky Worlds for the Philips CDi. It was made by the team who made the wonderful Zelda CDi games. Their goal was to make a game that wasn't shitty to save their reputation. There's a prototype of the ROM out there, but the game never even made it to alpha. It was actually shown to Nintendo, and they said they were impressed with what they saw. The sprits and graphics all looked like they were lifted from Mario is Missing, because the "Wacky World" were all based on real world locations, like the Pyramids and New York City.

Just try your best to imagine Mario is Missing, but starting Mario, and is only slightly shitty instead of completely shitty.

No. That wasn't what I was referring to. I was referring to the uncompleted Super Mario World 2 for the SNES that eventually became Yoshi's Island.

The game was fairly far in progress before Miyamoto decided he didn't like it and completely changed the art style of the game to what it is now.

>> No.1372247

I read he got told to be less cartoony, got angry at Rare's Donkey Kong and decided to make things look more cartoony after dissing DK to the press.

>> No.1372249

Are you sure it's not that stupid rumor Nintendo fans made to bash on DKC/Rareware fans, saying YI was meant to be made in cgi but then Myiamoto changed it because he hated 3D or some stupid shit?
I'm pretty sure that's false, considering how Shiggy himself worked on Mario RPG and Yoshi Story, both of which used pre-rendered 3D.

>> No.1372253

>I'm pretty sure that's false
It IS false, since Miyamoto said not that long ago in an interview that he has no idea where people got the idea that he didn't like DKC. He said he was even e-mailing Chris Stamper daily about development of the game.

There was also going to be a sequel to Cocoron on the PC engine, but alas. Not even a leak this time.

They turned that failed project into Conker's - the developers said that Twelve Tales was too derivative of Banjo-Kazooie and they weren't happy with it.

If there's one prototype/unreleased game I want out there, it would be the original playstation build for Lufia: The legend returns, since it WAS being developed for the PS1 originally, got somewhere aroudn 70% to 80% complete, and then there was developer issues, taito pulled all the game assets and reworked them inhouse, downsizing shitloads of everything and cutting a little less than half the game out and releasing it on Gameboy Color. Knowing how japanese devs tended to treat their source work on games before 2000, there's a good chance there's nothing left from that version of the game, but if there is, I would absolutely love to see it. I know there's some old scanned shots of what the PS1 version was shaping up to be, but I can't find them currently.

Too derivative, no. Chris Seavor said the Project Dream team looked at Conker and made their game's new direction (that is, what ended up as Banjo-Kazooie) very similar to what Twelve Tails had going on, and managed to release their game first. Internal competition at Rare was fierce.

Now, while I personally love the guy and find him hilarious, be aware that most ex-Rare people outside of Seavor's clique say he's full of shit, so we can't be sure what he's telling about the golden days is completely accurate. At any rate, overlap between Conker and Banjo was the reason Twelve Tails got canned and turned into CBFD.

At first I thought this was fake but turns out Rareware really did intend there to be a GBC counterpart to the N64 title much like with Perfect Dark. The same idea was present here also in that plugging the GBC cartridge into the N64 controller adapter would unlock cheats in the N64 version of Jet Force Gemini.

Unfortunately the development team didn't have time to put everything they wanted into JFG so content was slashed including the amount of cheats. Considering this loss of functionality and the lack of interest in previous GBC titles it's understandable that they cancelled the release of the
Supposedly the game was pretty much complete before that happened however not much is known about this prototype still because the guy who leaked it threw a massive bitch fit asking for $$$ instead of dumping the contents. Doesn't help how dubious he made the cartridge appear.
