Wow!!

Little quote for people like me who had to look this up....

Around September/October 1990, Nintendo Power magazine announced that they would bring the highly acclaimed Maxis game SimCity to the Nintendo consoles on the market at the time, both the SNES and the NES. The magazine listed a release date of this for simultaneous release for Spring of 1991. In the November/December 1990 issue two screenshots from the game were published and those two screenshots were for a very long time the only proof that a NES version of the game actually existed.

Just had to say that.
Congrats on your find Ramirez. Many of us have been waiting a long time for this game to become unearthed.

Just so there is no confusion. I have not purchased this game YET. I was merely putting it on here so people know that it does actually exist.

OH MY GOSH woohoo!! Always told myself one day it will be shown. Love these discoveries of prototypes of consoles and games lately the last few years. <3
I take it this is the only prototype of the game in the world.
Hope to play it soon! To the owner, please share the love.
Thank you for sharing this with us OP.

Thanks for giving us hope that this might see the light of day, have you found out if this is the final version?

edit: that gold cartridge on the table in the video looks familiar.

My only gripe that I know for a fact that more than one did exist as they had it up for demo in the CES there must have been atleast 5-6 nes's running the game so thee bust have been aome left over or maybe they where destroyed




-------------------------
Ah, so you found the secret room, eh? Bask in the glory of a Mario Trilogy, a Pair of Zeldas and a Sextet of Megamans. Yes this is the little grey box that could and continues to do. What lies ahead is entirely up to you. YOU DECIDE

Is the gold cart sitting on the table in that video the same one in the magazine page a few posts up? So this guy has 2 sim city protos?
