Final Fantasy IV [NES – Concept / Cancelled]

Apparently what we know as Final Fantasy IV was originally going to be Final Fantasy V for the super famicon. the above picture is a mock up of what Final Fantasy IV for the nes would most likely have looked like in the beta stages had it gotten past the drawing board. So yes, there is a lost final fantasy game, but only in concept because it never made it past a concept sheet and into a playable beta.

Black Tiger [NES – Cancelled]

English: The legendary arcade game by Capcom, released 1987, has never had it easy on the console versions: in addition to the terrible Amiga version, the developers had decided to convert the mighty Coin Op to the famous NES. Of course, the version for the Nintendo console would have been subjected to several cuts to allow the porting. For some strange reason, this version was canceled.

Thanks to dartmouth for the translation!

Italian: Il mitico arcade della Capcom, datato 1987, non ha mai avuto vita facile sulle console casalinghe: oltre alla terribile versione per Amiga, gli sviluppatori avevano deciso di convertire il possente Coin Op sul famoso NES. Naturalmente la versione per la console Nintendo, sarebbe stata sottoposta a diversi tagli per consentire il porting. Per qualche strano motivo questa versione fu cancellata.

Thanks a lot to NES World for these screenshots!

California Raisins [NES – Cancelled]

California Raisins is the tie-in of the eponymous 80’s animated show that was supposed to released in the early nineties. It featured the original characters of the franchise and five different and very bizzarre levels. Even through the game was finished, at the end it got quietly dropped, probably because of a scandal involving toxins found in the California Raisins.

Thanks a lot to Nes World for the first screenshot!
