Love Quest (ラブクエスト Rabukuesuto) is a 1995 Japan-only Super Famicom RPG game developed by C-Lab and published by Tokuma Shoten. The plot involves a weak and extremely mother-crazed businessman who is about to marry his fiancée, Yuka, in the wedding ceremony but suddenly something went wrong at the church, as such, the mysterious force has disrupt and Yuka has somehow disappeared. He set up a quest to find her. The game was planned to be released for the Famicom in January 1994 priced at 7,800 yen before being moved to Super Famicom because of the dying 8-bit markets.

Only four prototypes were known to still exist[1] and all of them were owned by Japanese collectors. Obviously, few has been dumped privately but chances of making ROM public are highly unlikely,[2][3] however, an NSF file is available online. It can be found as LXXX XXXXT (mistaken as a Super Mario Bros. romhack). One prototype was sold for 250,000 yen in a Yahoo auction on 2008 and gameplay footage was put on by user YumimiX.[4]
