SNES Prototypes?

Maybe these photos confirm these games were released.

Todd McFarlane's Spawn - The Video Game (Japan):

Speedy Gonzales in Los Gatos Bandidos (Europe):

Speedy Gonzales looks like a fake to me. Images look squished, layout of the description is all over the place, no Nintendo Serial in sight, UPC 020763110495 is for Looney Tunes B-Ball.

Speedy Gonzales has all the hallmarks of bootlegs that you commonly see in Latin America.

I don't know if Spawn was legitimately released in Japan but that serial immediately gives away THAT copy as a fake.
The middle part was always two letters for games released up until about December 1994, and then four letters after that (judging by my observations when I typed out the serial codes for all my games years ago). Of those four letters, the last was always the same as the region (J for Japan) and the first letter was almost always A for standard cart releases. I think B was used for cart re-releases of Nintendo Power games, but I'm not certain on that. Other letters like Z were used for irregular carts (such as those supporting the Satellaview "Memory Pak" memory cards).

Looking up on GameFAQs, it probably wasn't released in Japan.
But the US serial code is SNS-A9WE-USA, so a Japanese code would almost certainly have been SHVC-A9WJ-JPN.
