We’ve preserved another prototype of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys by Titus Software! This build appears to be near final, without any major differences. Something quite interesting about this cartridge is that it contains an overdump of “Ridge Racer 64”, a game developed by Nintendo Software Technology. Unfortunately the overdump matches the retail European release, however, it’s a highly unusual case for there to be a first party developed title within a third party development cartridge. There’s currently no confirmed explanation as to how or why this occurred.


  • The differences within this build are currently unknown. If you happen to know the game well and know the differences between the retail release and this prototype, please let us know!
