Previously-unseen footage of Earthbound 64 surfaces

If only there were a prototype out there somewhere

Earthbound 64 never saw release, but fans still wonder what it would have been like. Sure, most of the ideas were translated into Mother 3 on GBA, but its still not the same! We want to know how it would have played on the N64! While that will never happen, we can at least enjoy a very quick snippet of footage that was just found on an old, archived video. Ah, what could have been...

I love that smoky, sketchy look for Club Titiboo. It looks a lot more crowded than in the GBA version!

This game would have been outrageous.

Wouldn't it be cool if someone managed to find the Earthbound 64 beta similar to how that group discovered the Pokemon Gold and Silver beta last year.

This is the kind of stuff I come to gonintendo for. So cool to see! Wish something playable had come of it

From what has been told the team was really struggling with 3D development so it probably wouldn't have played all that well, why it was canceled. It's probably better it ended up a GBA game, just needed to release a few years earlier.

is it crazy that i would play this on the switch in a higher res with all of its low poly glory.
