Prototype of National Geographic: Panda by Bandai Namco. Despite being completely in English, the game serial identifies it as being a Japanese build. The cartridge also appears to have been rewritten at some point, as a sticker on the cartridge poking out from below indicates that it once held a copy of a game that could not be identified.

The prototype only contains one publisher logo screen with both logos from Bandai Namco and National Geographic upon boot. Compared to the retail version, a slide containing “Licensed by Nintendo” is first shown, and then another publisher logo screen containing Bandai Namco and Ubisoft. Language options don’t seem to have been completed, thus they do not show up in the build.
