Koopa64 40 Member · Posted August 16, 2020 Share Posted August 16, 2020 (edited) Over 20 years ago, a prototype cartridge of Earth Bound (aka EarthBound Zero, aka EarthBound Beginnings) was found and publicly dumped through usenet. Since then, the game has made it onto the Wii U Virtual Console... (see title screen, still just says Earth Bound) But it seems no cover art for it has ever surfaced. Everyone just uses the red Mother cover art or pulls a still from a Japanese TV ad featuring live actors playing the characters from the game. (see video here) We also have this old interview with the English Script Writer for Earth Bound, Phil Sandhop. He shares details on what the game's packaging would have been like, but I don't think there's any mention in there about just the cover art. http://www.lostlevels.org/200407/200407-earthbound.shtml So, I ask former NintendoAge experts, did Nintendo of America ever finish a cover art for the unreleased Earth Bound? Has it ever surfaced? Or was it not completed before the game was canceled? Edited August 16, 2020 by Koopa64 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
