Magical Drop 2 on Switch Online

Are we looking at the first fan translation hack ever seen officially on a Nintendo console?

It's an old prototype made back in 1996 that was in Nintendo's vaults. Nintendo preserves builds of games that were ready to be released in their lotchecks. As a result, their lotchecks contain unreleased games, as illustrated in the Wack0 leaks. A localization prototype for the game surfaced in 2019 but it was never dumped due to drama...
