Unannounced and unreleased NES game UWC emerges 30 years later

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.

During the N64 days, Seta was developing a promising-looking racer known as “Rev Limit”. It would have offered real-world driving with impressive graphical effects and a bunch of vehicles based on real marques. Unfortunately, after the company ran out of money, the project was cancelled.
Nearly two decades later, YouTuber RetroGameTV managed to obtain a prototype cartridge and N64 development kit in a Yahoo Auctions lot. The title screen even shows a copyright of 1999 even though most had assumed it had been scrapped a year prior.
We’ve posted RetroGameTV’s video below, which shows off racing, different tracks and cars, and more.
