Video Spotlight: Is This Video of a Sonic the Hedgehog Prototype Real or a Really Good Hoax?

Yuji Naka’s Twitter has revealed this rather fantastic video of what appears to be a Sonic the Hedgehog prototype that some of you may recognise from screenshots released in magazines back in 1990:

Now the real question is this; real or fake? Could someone help translate Naka-san’s Tweet to help with this conundrum!?

EDIT: Rough Translation Courtesy of Angelgotchi
“It’s a version of the game that was under construction. Wondering where the ROM came from and wondering if the segment is from after the river with the rocks and palmtrees before it. Nostalgic!”

So Naka-San thinks it’s real! Curiouser and curiouser…
