English Prototype of Final Fantasy II Listed for $50,000 on eBay

A rare prototype of Final Fantasy II in English was listed on eBay for $50,000. Final Fantasy II for the NES never came to America. This caused the numbering of the games to get mixed up during the NES and SNES eras due to the fact that the franchise skipped from Final Fantasy to Final Fantasy IV, which was released on the SNES as Final Fantasy II. The seller posted this description of the game: “A pre-production sample cartridge for any video game from this era is rare indeed, but for one to survive for a game that was never actually released is something of a miracle. Having that unreleased game be a part of one of the most important franchises in video game history is basically unheard of. I have been the proud owner of this cartridge for over nine years now, and as far as I am aware, this is the only legitimate copy of the game that exists. Any other copies you have seen of Final Fantasy II for the NES have been bootlegs, this is the real deal. It has been stored securely since it was originally purchased in 2003, and until I took the photos for this auction, it had not touched a console since that time.” Source
