This page details one or more prototype versions of Star Fox 2.

To do:
SNES Central has a very good analysis of the prototypes that had been found prior to the July 2020 leaks. Use it as a base.

The prototypes of Star Fox 2 span the last year-and-a-half of the game's development, up to its finalization in September 1995.


April 15, 1994 Build
The earliest known prototype, which first became public around August 6, 1999.
April 1, 1994
Found in the July 24, 2020 Nintendo leak. Named after its file modification date, but development-wise it actually comes between the April 15 and May 6 builds.
May 6 and May 13, 1994 Builds
Two builds first compiled on September 22, 2017 from a source.

Put together right before Winter CES. Also found among the July 2020 leak.
SF2-Title-June 8, 1995 Build.png
June 8, 1995 Build
Also found among the July 2020 leak. A lot has changed since WCES, but it's still far from done.
SF2-Title-June 22, 1995 Build.png
June 22, 1995 Build
Leaked on August 30, 2002. Long thought to have been close to final, but turned out to be missing several features present in the finished game.
