Unboxing a Giant Mr. Saturn!
“Totally Not a Cat” alerted me to the fact that an EarthBound Zero prototype cartridge is currently up for auction. After some quick fact-checking and cross-checking, it looks pretty likely that this is legit.

I think there are only three known prototypes circulating in the public, and there’s at least one inside NOA that we know about. I really should write some kind of article or reference page listing all known legitimate proto cartridges, info about them, info about fakes, etc. I think it’d be interesting and useful. If anyone has any useful info/links concerning that, let me know.
Anyway, it’s probably for certain that some crazed rare-game collector will end up snatching this prototype, but it should be fun to watch the bidding war that’s set to ensue in those last 20 seconds 😛 The auction ends on the 28th of this month, so this should be a neat show to watch.
