Forest of Illusion recently got its hands on a prototype of the DS firmware, which believe it or not, actually included blood type selection settings.

This firmware was at version 0.40615, which was well before the handheld system made it to market. Including the ability to set your blood type on the DS was something Nintendo was considering at one point, but ultimately scrapped it from the final product.

Panda Punch trailer

Panda Punch has seen its debut on Switch, and we have a new trailer from Ratalaika Games and Ninja Rabbit Studio. The two sides are offering a final look at their puzzle platformer.

Further information about the title can be found in the following overview:

Super Mario World localization prototype

Forest of Illusion has secured a little piece of Nintendo history having shared a prototype build from the localized version of Super Mario World. It has a date of October 25, 1990, which was nearly a year before the game launched in North America.

A number of debugging features are included, which made localization easier for developers. For instance, Mario can access any point of the map without completing the previous stage. Also, when the timer hits zero, he doesn’t die. Other features include being able to instantly complete a level, toggling between different colored Yoshis, cycling through power-ups inside a stage, and moving Mario anywhere on the screen.
