As mentioned in another thread
, I recently bought an original NES system, and was dismayed to learn that Wanpaku Graffiti
was simply too long to fit in the system with the converter that I have. Since all converters are the same length, there's no way the Famicom cart would ever fit inside an NES without some major surgery - and I ain't about to mutilate my cart.
So I decided to hit up RetroZone and order their repro
(yeah, I linked to it. Fuck Namco Bandai, they can't see this anymore, nor do I believe they've been browsing T3M for quite some time). It arrived today, and I have to admit, that's some quality work there. It has a nice dark red cart shell, the label is professional looking, and it fired right up. I played through it and it runs perfectly.
The only thing I don't like about it has nothing to do with the cart. The guys that translated the ROM way back when put a really terrible looking "Super Deformed" where Wanpaku Graffiti
goes on the title screen, and that's the same ROM that the repro guys are using (check out the RetroZone page for a picture). Ick. I wish someone would go back into the ROM and fix that so it reads Wanpaku Graffiti
