Reproduction Earthbound cartridges. These run between $40-150 depending on how well made they are and how much of a demand there is. The original game was prepared for US release and professionally translated but never released. 

Most of these cartridges feature the official (unreleased) US ROM, but the most expensive one patches the US translation on to the (harder) original Japanese ROM. I played the hell out of this game in an emulator on my DS twoish years ago. Great game.

Gangway Monsters

There was a video game in the late 90s called Gangway Monsters. It was a Japanese game for the ps1 in which the play controlled monsters who battled on spin tops. 

I would like very much to play it. Especially if some kind soul or group of kind souls has seen fit to translate it in to english. 

Any help you can offer would be appreciated, know where I can find this game?

This is a photo of my little brother playing Ninja Gaiden for the first time. 

He is playing it using a RETROPort NES to SNES adapter, connecting to a SupaBoy portable SNES, and finally to a television. The Retroport is a Famiclone (an NES on a Chip),  designed to be powered (and take inputs from) an SNES. 

The SUPABoy is an SNES on a chip that has been fashioned into a portable gaming console. It has rather excellent SNES compatibility. (I played Starfox on it.) 


In spite of the ridiculousness of this set up, the fact that NES carts are notoriously vibration sensitive and  the cart was hanging out of the top of the controller that he was using to play the game, the fact that this was his first time playing, and the notorious difficulty of this game, he managed to beat the first level on his first attempt.
