SNES Prototypes from the Don Russell Collection

Don Russell was a prolific video game collector who recently passed away after a lengthy illness. I have the pleasure of releasing three SNES prototypes from his collection, all unreleased games in North America. Two of them are definitely unreleaed US prototypes, while the other, I suspect is a prototype of the PAL version of the game that may have been sent to the US for evaluation. The games are:

- Spot Goes To Hollywood
- Might & Magic II: Gate To Another World
- Turbo Toons

Please support the Gofundme for Don Russell.

Super SWIV prototype

Today, I have written another short article of a prototype dump from idc. This is a prototype of Super SWIV, but really the only thing that differs from the final version is the copyright screen. It seems to indicate that this should be a Japanese prototype, but it also has a "Licensed by Nintendo" notice, which would not be in a Japanese version, leading to questions that it could be a US prototype. Without knowing more about the origin of the prototype, it is hard to say for sure.

King Arthur's World prototype

It has been quite a half year for me, and as a result the updating of SNES Central has dropped to low levels. The sheer amount of stuff has led me to consider revamping the site with a better database system. My first idea was to use a static site system like Jekyll, but I quickly realized that it would be unsuitable for what I wanted to do. So now I am pondering doing something different, but due to being busy and illness, I have made no progress. I decided that I should at least go through some of the prototypes that have been sent to me. First up is this near final prototype of King Arthur's World. Thanks to idc for releasing this!
