Never released?

GameFAQs gives a release date but no other information, GameTDB has no results for Beat the Intro besides a DS version (which also is pretty scarce for information on there), and has a page for the game but it's completely blank. Spong says the game was unreleased, and MobyGames also has no results. I don't think this game was ever made. - Xerxes (talk) 01:37, 31 May 2020 (CEST)

I guess what confuses me is the Spong page provides 50 screenshots that seem to include Mii's. Are those actually from the the DS version? Even if it wasn't "released" it may still exist. I'm not against purging this, as the evidence does seem sketchy, just want to be careful for something that may just be rare. Kolano (talk) 02:10, 31 May 2020 (CEST)

I didn't notice those screenshots on my first look. I don't think they're from the DS version, the DS version's interface has the same color scheme and basic UI but looks different (obviously because of the aspect ratio but also the text and pop-ups are not the same). I'd say those are actual screenshots from the game. I've never used Spong before and looking at their about page they seem to be a bit more professional of a source than other cataloguing sites, so it's possible they actually called in to Mindscape and got development screenshots directly from them before the game's release. (Notice too that all 50 screenshots are of the same quality, like they were all taken at once.) If so, the game may exist in a warehouse somewhere, or was never actually printed to discs, who knows. I guess there's no harm in leaving the page up though for now if you want to wait and see if it appears in a warehouse auction or something. - Xerxes (talk) 02:35, 31 May 2020 (CEST)
