Insights from the development team

According to Karl Mamer (source), the NES port was done by Mindscape not EA due to EA’s reluctance to release cartridge games at that time:

Ozark and Bunten eventually departed EA’s company over a dispute regarding a port of M.U.L.E. for Nintendo. EA didn’t want to release cartridge games (EA now makes the majority of its income from cart games). Ozark sold the cart port to Mindscape.

Ironically, I quit EA because Trip wouldn’t let me do M.U.L.E. for the Nintendo because he said EA wasn’t going to do cartridge games. This is the company that now makes more than half their revenue from cartridges!
