If memory serves me right, as I don't have it here with me, the box variant you link to is the "later" Taiwan version. The older one doesn't have the three bullet points and the rectangle with the yellow text. I believe these details were added in an effort to dissipate any doubts that the console was made especially for Taiwan and was fully compatible with local standards.

The Pikachu sticker was standard on this box. Further confirms it was a late version which advertised the ill-fated expansion.

Some Asian stuff found its way to Europe through shops and sellers ordering through their contacts, as price was interesting and the stuff didn't sell very well in the original markets. Besides, this Asian N64 is a Japanese console sold with a European 220V 2-pin plug (aka ready to use in Europe, except the UK). For the UK you have the HK version lol.

They are basically Japanese consoles with different plugs and localised box/manual/bottom sticker. and localised rf unit to work where it was supposed to.
