A few rare Nintedo items

/ 8 years ago

Super Nintendo Control Deck Tester. This was posted up by someone who supposedly used to work for Nintendo and he states that this is used for warranty repair checks. Sounds legit to me though just by looking at this it screams SNES. Not sure anyone would have a use for this other that collection but still a cool item and I know I am a fan of seeing gaming stuff that I have never seen before.

This is not as rare but good luck finding one in the US. This iss the Nintendo 64DD, a disc drive that attached to the N64 for proprietary 64 MB magnetic disks for expanded data storage. This was never released in the US and even in Japan few games were released for it. One game to make note of is Mario Artist.

Mario Artist was pretty much an updated version of Mario Paint for the SNES. They also released some “Pocket Monster” titles for the N64 64DD which you may better know as Pokemon.

And here we have a Game Boy Prototype cart for Final Fantasy 2. I have seen a few prototype carts up for auction but what I like about this one is that their are actually some differences between the prototype and the retail version and he shows this in the auction.

Hope you are diggin the rare Nintendo posts. I am going to try and switch things up all the time and make sure to touch on a little bit of all things, old school and new.

Happy Birthday Mario Mario and Lugi Mario!

/ 8 years ago

Here is the best of the best, and what I mean by that is unopened copies of 3 of the best video games of all time. Mario 1, Mario 2 (Doki Doki Panic anyone?), and Mario 3!

As I bonus I found this Mc Donald’s display case back from the Super Mario Bros 3 release with the toys still in it! Same thing that they have in Mcd’s lobbies around the world. I would LOVE to have a nice display piece like this but no way I have the room (or the cash to spend for that matter)!

And how can we wish the plumber a happy birthday without covering the table with his own Vintage “Happy Birthday” Mario tablecloth!

But enough with sitting here reading a blog about the ultimate video game icon! Go blow the dust out of your carts and get to appreciating the mans legacy!

Or, play this weird modified version of Super Mario Bros 3 in your browser: http://www.virtualnes.com/play/?id=RMH-30&s=10
