Another prototype of EarthBound for the NES has been discovered, this time at a garage sale in Portland, Oregon. It seems identical to the prototype found back in the 1990s. Nintendo has since released the game officially on Wii U as EarthBound Beginnings. Just goes to show you what might still be out there at garage sales!
