Footage of the cancelled Earthbound 64 (also known to many as MOTHER 3) for the Nintendo 64 surfaced online.

The never-before-seen footage of the game was ripped from the Nintendo Company Report 1998 CD-ROM, a copy of which was acquired by Twitter user @realZen64 at a Yahoo Japan Auction.

The trailer was apparently planned to be showed off during Nintendo’s 1997 Space World Trade Show.

The CD-Rom also contains videos for various other games which were under development at the time, such as “Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo Kazooie, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and more”.

Zen is currently in the process of uploading them to Youtube as well, and they can be found on the channel here; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNKGSWWs55FILEDiMbKSS_A
