Long Lost Super Nintendo Mouse Interactive ‘Sound Factory’ ROM Released

Super-Nintendo-Sound-Factory-Prototype-ROM-ReleasedGet ready to dust off that unloved and unused Super Nintendo Mouse that sits beside Mario Paint! Interactive-guru Toshio Iwai’s unreleased 16-bit debut Sound Factory has finally been made available to the masses - a creative and easy to use music studio for anyone with a SNES.

Similar to Mario Paint, Sound Factory was an interactive experience designed for use with the short-lived Super NES Mouse accessory. Featuring a selection of different mini-games which provided unique ways to create sound, the game was intended for all ages as a bit of fun. Presumably scrapped in favour of bundling Mario Paint with the mouse accessory instead, Sound Factory had remained lost for decades until copies of the game surfaced on eBay late last year.

Having sold for an undisclosed amount on the online auction site following its recent uncovering, it would appear the prototype cartridge containing Sound Factory fell into the right hands. An anonymous collector has been in touch with key figures within the Super Nintendo preservation community to ensure that the game’s code is preserved for future generations to come. Following its safe archival, one of the key members in the preservation scene who’s been applauded for his efforts in reviving the Satellaview’s functionality via emulation has stepped forward with a link containing the game’s ROM - something you can now enjoy either via a flash cartridge or through emulation.
