Lost SMW Beta Remake?

I found this video on YouTube claming to be the real SMW beta.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15P4LhbynSI

It seems incredibly fake. The Tanooki suit works the same as it does in other hacks, it has the dragon coin system (which wasn't shown in magazines) and some people pointed out it has the same sound errors as the original smw in zsnes.

But, it's not the Yoshi Master hack. The level design is completely different and there's a custom SMB3 exit coded in. I've searched high and low, the ROM for this is gone. Does anyone have any info about this? Like I said this isn't the Yoshi Master hack that everyone knows about.
The beta footage in that link is official - that's a video captured by Nintendo from back when they were working on an early version of the game. The ROM isn't out there (not yet anyway?) because the game was simply never released in that stage of development. Releasing it like that isn't something Nintendo would do anyway.

Of course Yoshi Master's hack is different, Yoshi Master doesn't work for Nintendo or anything. His "Super Mario World Beta" hack is simply his interpretation of what the beta ROM could possibly have been like, but it wasn't made to be completely identical to the footage in the video.

If you want the ROM from the video to come about, your best bet is to just wait and see if something comes out eventually (kind of like it did last year with the NES version of SimCity). Either that or you could just break into Nintendo's headquarters and steal the files off of their computer. Then you would be a hero to us all :D


E: Nevermind, I'm an idiot (see below). I'm confusing the video you linked with some old screenshots that surfaced on the internet a long time ago. I looked into it a bit more and yeah, that video's a fake - Yoshi Master based his hack off of only the few screenshots/concepts that were revealed, but the video version of it was just someone recording the hack and trying to pass it off as official by blurring the quality to make it seem old. Oh well.


Now that I understand what you're actually saying, the reason why the levels are changed could be any number of reasons. Maybe whoever recorded the video thought that they could do a better job of designing levels that looked like they could have come from a beta version of the game. Or, even more likely, maybe the levels recorded in the video are just from an older version of Yoshi Master's hack. YM seems to still be active around here, why don't you PM him about it and see if he knows anything?

I don't think he was expressing surprise about it not being the same, he was just ruling out the possibility that the video is Yoshi master's hack disguised it as beta footage.

If this is a real beta of the game, where did you find out that that was a thing? Isn't it a little suspicious that someone named "MR. WALUIGIGUYFAN66" should be the one to upload it?

This is interesting to see! haha

The footage in this video doesn't seem to be my old hack, however, it doesn't seem to be a legitimate beta either.

I'm guessing he used some resources from my hack to make a new hack for this video. Making this "lost footage" hack seem as different from my hack as possible would be a good way to convince others that his video is authentic footage of the real beta.

That said, the level design seems very un-Nintendo to me. I can see that the status bar is the one from the final game rather than the status bar seen in the beta screenshots from the 1989 build. Also, I imagine the intro would be in Japanese rather than English! I have doubts any translation would be done that early in SMW's development.
