As discussed late last year on the Completely Unnecessary podcast with Pat and Ian, the SimCity prototype for the Nintendo Entertainment System finally surfaced. Not only was it previewed at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, but it landed in the hands of a collector in Dallas. And they’re going to let us play on it… all weekend.
It’s a high-score tournament on one of only two known copies of this game. It’s been hidden away for 25 years. Now is your chance to build the city of your dreams… on the NES.
Time(s) it will occur: All Weekend
Game Version: NES
