LEGO recently surprised fans by unveiling another aspect of its partnership with Nintendo. Aside from Super Mario, the two sides teamed up to create a LEGO version of the Nintendo Entertainment System. Both products are currently available.

In an interview with GameCentral not too long ago, designer Maarten Simons discussed the creation process for the Mario sprite piece and working with Nintendo on the project. He told the site:

The LEGO NES was only just announced a couple of weeks ago, but the product has already arrived. Its official release date is tomorrow.

What you may not know is that there’s a special Easter egg hidden inside. We’ll be going into more detail beyond this point, so keep that in mind if you don’t want to be spoiled in any way.

YouTuber Stephan Reese (Archon 1981) has acquired a previously unannounced and unknown NES game. UWC, a wrestling title, was created by the defunct Japanese developer SETA. The game’s title screen shows a 1989 date, so this one has been kept in the shadows for three decades.

How did Reese manage to get his hands on the game? He actually just bought it off a former Nintendo employee – and that’s mostly it. This staffer was assigned to test UWC because he was a wrestling fan.

You can see what UWC looks like in the video below. Reese will be dumping the ROM online as well so other people can try it out for themselves.
