Someone on Something Awful apparently found and dumped a translated NES prototype of this game:
I'm not skilled enough in NES hacking to investigate the internal changes to the ROM or determine it's legitimacy, nor am I particularly interested in playing this side by side with the original, so I'm just leaving this note here for anyone interested.

Edit: Nevermind, I stopped and looked though the graphics with a tile viewer, and very quickly found the username of another person on the thread where I found the real. It's definitely not a real proto.
- Was he involved in dumping the thing? I seriously hope this isn't a case of the dumper watermarking the dump - Andlabs 21:28, 27 August 2012 (EDT)
- It's a romhack. A translation of some sort. They edited parts of the hidden message to insert their own credits, fercris'sakes... "Title by Zari-Gani, Prog Univbee, English by Zari-Gani + Saggcx!" // Foxhack 21:35, 27 August 2012 (EDT)
- You got in before I hit submit. I was just going to say: The message in the ROM is, "TITLE BY ZANI-GANI PROG UNIVBEE ENGLISH BY ZARI-GANI + SAGCCX". SAGCCX is the name of the fan translation team for the Japanese show Game Center CX on Something Awful. Univbee is the person who posted the ROM, and Zari-Gani is one of the team's translators and works a graphic designer. TapamN 21:40, 27 August 2012 (EDT)
