I was so annoyed that Nintendo didn't implement any of the cancelled OoT features in the 3DS remake. Some features, like the beam sword, are even still in the game's code with special graphics and everything. We need a OoT Director's Cut.

Seems like a lot of the cool early 3D stuff in OOT ended up being reduced down to pre rendered or 2d flat images, probably as they developed the game more and needed the extra space for actual gameplay content

I think zelda is really big in general about reusing ideas and beta content.
I remember hearing that a portion of the cut wind waker dungeons were just remade for twilight princess.

>> No.5920763

I feel like we didn’t really miss out on anything too special when it comes to cut oot content since Nintendo had multiple opportunities to include this shit when they rereleased the game two times. Whatever was worth salvaging probably got carried over to Majora’s Mask. I’d be more satisfied if someone interviewed someone who worked on the game and just got them to spill the beans on what some of this stuff was intended for, like equipping the triforce and those medallions you got from temples, as well as the unicorn fountain if it wasn’t just an alternative design for the fairy fountains.

>> No.5920767

like what >>5920714 said.
most of the unused content in the zelda games just get reused and retooled.
The beta content of OoT especially, it's had years to all get reclaimed in subsequent games. Majora's Mask and Master Quest being the biggest ones, most likely.

>> No.5920798

Miyamoto did do an interview saying the medallions were supposed to enhance arrows or something, instead we got fire, ice and light arrows. A lot of the stuff they cut seems to be because of redundancy, like you don’t need 6 versions of a glowing powered arrow.

>Why is it that Ocarina of Time has the most interesting beta and cut elements of any game?
Early 3D and the fact that all of the beta footage we see is small, limited views of self-contained foggy areas. It's incredibly easy to project the idea that there's something big and exciting just off screen. In reality it's more likely that these are small areas with extremely little going on, but it's way more fun to picture otherwise.

>> No.5928628

I think I have to credit Mario 3 for creating my fascination with pre-final builds of games.
As a kid, seeing the screenshots of the different World 1 map and the grassland level with the Parabeetles was so fascinating. Where were these things? Were there more levels hidden somewhere in the game? How can I play these levels. Of course I now know that they were just screenshots created using pre-final builds of the game, or just flat-out mockups, that somehow made it onto the back of the US box, but back then they were so mysterious. Playing a prototype version of SMB3 would be like fulfilling some sort of childhood fantasy.

Old video game magazines had tons of that stuff, a lot of it never made it into the game, if the game was even finished.

I'm pretty sure some stuff was just made up as well, with no Internet who could possibly tell what's fake and what's not.

One I can think is Pokemon Stadium 3, it was only like 2 blurry screenshots but I was hyped as fuck.

I believe the reason why that turned into Starfox Adventures was because Nintendo didn't want Dinosaur Planet, a game that's inspired by Zelda, to come out to a rival console (in this case the OG Xbox).
So because they were shitting their pants over how it might compete against their gold goose they requested Rare to turn the game into a Starfox one before the acquisition was complete.

Come to think of it, SMW final is still somewhat bizzare compared to the other mario titles.
My guess is due to how the graphics and all are designed like an 8-bit game, but for a 16-bit console, not to mention the fact that it's kind of an unfinished game, it makes the enemies and some places look a bit unusual (not in a negative way, may i add).

The final result was a really bad one, but the N64 one looks good.

I remember seeing a lot of the maps used in the final on the beta too.

I have this feeling it's unfinished too.

Seiken Densetsu: The Emergence of Excalibur ranks pretty high. It was a Disk System RPG spanning FIVE DISKS that Square was going to release before they placed their bets on the first (D&D-inspired) Final Fantasy. The game was entirely canned, with the Seiken Densetsu trademark going to an unrelated Final Fantasy spinoff years later (which in turn spun into the Mana series). I wonder how far this one got along, since the reason for cancellation seems to be because the Disk System lost relevancy. Given how iconic to the genre Square's pre-merger RPGs are, there's a certain mystique about a lost classic that could have been.

The original Final Fantasy IV on Famicom ranks as a distant second, but last I heard (and don't quote me), it was reborn and became Final Fantasy Dimensions. And of course, there's Chrono Break, but I don't think any work got done on that at all besides trademark filing.

>Mother 64
I'll never understand why people are still upset over the original Mother 3, because the N64 graphics looked like liquid ass even back then, while the final GBA version still looks good today. Oh, it's the content you say, not the art style? Well I don't know if you noticed, but the amount of chapters planned for the game kept downsizing throughout development, so even if the game released on N64, it probably would have had maybe one or two chapters worth of content over the GBA version, and that's IF they got over the other development hurdles. Of course the real reason it was kill was because they targeted the 64DD, which was a blacker void than the Virtual Boy. Mother 3 still got on the wrong system though - it SHOULD have been a mid-life DS game instead of a late GBA game, which would have allowed for less compressed music, optional tapping/drumbeat controls for battle, and enough space left over to fit any content that shouldn't have been cut. But as for the N64 version, it died for a reason.

>All the gold silver beta Pokemon were great
Octillery's design is pretty much objectively a downgrade (how can it still be described as tank-like?), but as far as all the other designs are concerned, not a whole lot else stand out to me.

>Kimba 64

The running theory is that most likely Chapter 7 was originally five separate (probably linear) chapters, one for each Magypsy/Needle. So really, they just rewrote the content we would have gotten in the final N64 version, and it's actually an improvement; anyone talking about how the N64 version had SO MUCH MORE STUFF removed from the GBA version is really talking about the failed 64DD version that doomed the whole game on that platform.

>We'll never know what's up with the spaceman and the little red-haired girl.
Truth be told, Seiken Densetsu "0" was probably put on hold with potential to port to cartridge at a later date, then canceled completely when Final Fantasy proved to be a success because it may have been an entirely different type of RPG. Or it may have just been a broken game because, while a lot of the Final Fantasy staff worked on it, it apparently didn't have Nasir Gebelli - and whether his code was quality in retrospect or not, he was still Square's best programmer at the time and was instrumental in making Final Fantasy a success. Maybe a bit of both! Regardless, I wouldn't be surprised if it got far along or was even fully completed but just never entered production, given that they were also taking preorders for it. IIRC, Hironobu Sakaguchi revealed in an interview that FFIV Famicom was actually almost finished (the released FFIV was originally FFV), which no doubt put him at odds with the higher-ups who preferred to keep that information under wraps. I don't think FFIV Famicom became Dimensions, though - if there was inspiration, only in the sense of Star Fox 2 "becoming" Star Fox Command. So yeah, I bet it's in a vault somewhere, and if the opportunity presents itself, there's a chance (however slim) that Square Enix could pull a Star Fox 2.
