I'm confused.

Repro sale thread

Quote:
A special thanks goes out to Uncle Tusk for manufacturing the boxes and manuals. Also thanks to Frantik for translating the title screen and Parpunk for painting the collectors carts.

Translating the title screen? Is this a hack of the released Japanese version?

So, according to this:

NintendoAge is selling a hack of the Japanese version, and somebody found a real proto.

That is correct. The one being sold is a translation hack. By coincidence, an actual prototype was found very soon after the hack went on sale.

Wow, awesome that it's been found, wish I could've laid out for it.

Also, a Nelson-esque ha-ha.

This. My brother and I recently purchased the only known prototype like a week or two after the hacked repro went on sale. Very cool little proto, I'm surprised it never saw a release stateside.
