Pokemon Platinum [DS – Beta / Unused Stuff]

When Pokèmon Platinum was announced, lots of scans and screens came out on the net and Nintendo also put online a website about the game, with a screen of the battle vs. Giratina Origin. Howerer, the Giratina Origin sprite that we see in this screen is not the same one as the final version.

Beta :

Final :

Also, there was a beta sprite of Shaymin Sky form that was dropped before the release. There are also some beta items in Platinum that are also in D/P:

  • S.S. Ticket = A ticket for sailing with the S.S. Anne (but there’s no S.S. Anne in D/P/P!)
  • Contest pass = A pass for entering the Pokèmon Contest (contests do not need a ticket)
  • Magma Rock = A magma rock from the stark mountain (proupose unknown,maybe has something to do with Hetran)
  • Red Chain = A chain created by the Lake Trio (even if it’s used by Cyrus for awakening Dialga/Palkia in the game,the proupose of this item is unknown)
  • Rule Book = A book that contains the rules of the Wi-Fi mode (the rules in the Wi-Fi mode are writed into the instruction book)
  • Seal Bag = A bag that can contain 10 seals (replaced with the Seal Case)
  • Treasure Sack = A sack that holds the treasures found in the underground (replaced with the Special Selections for the underground)

They have no function in the game but they can be found by hacking the game or cheating.

Another thing just discovered : Pokèmon Platinum has a test music that’s just a remix of the Pokèmon R/S/E opening. Howerer, the music is unused in the game.

Update: most of the Pokemon Gold and Silver references could be used in the new G/S remakes, since it’s intended to be compatible with Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.

Moonlight Fables [DS – Cancelled]

Moonlight Fables is a cancelled side-scrolling action-adventure game, exclusively for the DS, that was slated for release in 2005 by Majesco. Designed by Cyber Philharmonic Video Game Design, the game was going to feature touch-screen input, use of the DS’s two screens and “multiplayer network play” (according to official publicity). Whether this refers to online play, or simply close-range wireless play, is not specified. While an action-adventure, the game would also have tasked the player with different puzzles to solve.

The game was gothic-fantasy-themed, and featured 19-year-old werewolf and Officer School For International Strike Forces graduate Trista Silver. Interestingly, the game was planned to have all of its levels merged into one giant area, allowing seamless movement between sections. It was going to include a range of weapons to master, including the mystical Moon Sword, various types of blaster and the player’s own werewolf teeth and claws. Quite an impressive visual arsenal was in the works, which boasted such features as a blend of 2D and 3D art styles, and a dynamic camera that zoomed in and panned around to highlight specific events.

Although Moonlight Fables was one of the first titles announced for the DS by a western publisher, it went through a major developmental overhaul mid-production. After these major changes, Majesco re-evaluated the game, and took it off their release list. It has since been officially cancelled.

The original website for the game can still be accessed via the Internet Archive.

Chibi Robo: Park Patrol [DS – Beta]

Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol is the DS sequel of the original Chibi-Robo game for the Nintendo GameCube. In the beta version, the HUD was changed at least 2 times before it became like the final one.

Beta 01:

Beta 02:

Final:

Imho the 2 beta version of the HUD was the best one, or at least it was more in-line with the style of the game. Even the Chibi-PC room had a different design as you can see in this
