Nintendo Entertainment System Games You Never Got To Play (
APRIL 17 2017


What you see here is a compiled list of Nintendo64 games that didn't make it through various phases of development, either from very early ideas - through alphs and or beta - to even finalized games that just weren't realeased for some reason. The purpose of this database is to collect as much information as possible about these long lost and almost forgotten games, so that the history isn't completely forgotten as time goes by.

If you feel you have something to contribute then please email me. I deeply appreciate all the help I can get :-)

More info on unreleased NES games can also be found in the mirror of NESTRAL's amazing 'Unreleased (& Rumored) NES Games' page.
