Swapmeet Mario

Recommended Posts

I stumbled upon these videos of Super Mario 4 and some others that went up to around 11. Of course, these were not official releases. There were lots of pirated games and multi-carts. They were made for the Japanese version NES, called the Famicom. Which was a totally different console design. The one in the US was made to mimic the VHS players of the era, hence the horizontal entry and push-down cartridge insertion. With a converter, you could be able to play the Japanese games in a US Nintendo. 8-bit music is rad. Kids now just dont know.

That "Mario 4" is just some other game with the mario sprite edited in. Can you imagine is they followed up Mario 3 with that shit? Being able to turn into an armadillo?

 

What is dope is that the patent for the nes (maybe snes too) tech went up and a ton of Asian manufactures make consoles that can play all the old games, US and Asian. More reliable and cheap too.

My roomates son has one of those controllers. Its supposed to have 75000 games. It does, but it is all like the same 50 games repeated over and over. In Japan they also had the Famicom Disk System, which played games on a 3.5 floppy drive. Shit was ahead of its time. Their 8 bit Nintendo came out in 83! We were still fucking with Atari 2600 in 83.

YES! so I'm not insane. I remember playing that bootleg mario from the korean grocery store down the block when I was 11. They had all kinds of shoddy bootleg games that needed the adapter cartridge.
