I have no objection to reproduction carts as long as they're clearly identified and appropriately priced.

Selling printed circuit broads for N64 home brew? Does that mean that some people out there are developing their own N64 games? I guess that's not completely out of the question given that a new SNES/Famicom fighting game will probably be coming out later this year.

A lot of fighting games may be going back to their roots for gameplay, but this is as grassroot as things can really get.

According to multiple sites including Automaton and WWG, a team of former SNK developers that worked on the KOF series and were probably a part of the FatalFury/AOF R&D division are working on a new fighting game called Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter.

While it's not too uncommon to hear news on Ex-SNK developers returning to back fighting game development, the big surprise about this new title is that it's for the classic 1990s Super Famicom platform...

Keeping things genuinely Super Famicom, Unholy Night will be a 32mb cartridge, which was a popular capacity for the SNES during its later lifespan. Keep in mind that this is 32 Mega"bits", meaning that it's actually only 4 Megabytes--it's peanuts in the modern era where a single photo with a smartphone can be way larger. But lots of SFC/SNES games have packed a big punch back in their years, and hopefully we'll be seeing the same with this new potential gem for the year 2017.

I always thought it would have been interesting if Nintendo borrowed the Star Fox 64 game engine and made an aerial dogfighting game for the N64 featuring Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom posse. Something along the lines of Snoopy Flying Ace but with Mario themed arenas and power-ups. Hopefully somebody will take my idea and run with it using a Retrogate PCB. ^_^

Its there a feed somewhere I can subscribe to for when they make more custom repros? Really want one of those!
I guess you can just follow the Retro Junkie World site but I'm pretty sure that what they're doing is illegal.

As I previously stated, I don't have a problem with reproductions as long as they're clearly identified. However, that doesn't mean that Nintendo doesn't have an issue with it.

Also, if these reproductions aren't clearly labelled as such on the plastic cartridge exterior it's highly likely that they'll be misidentified in the future which will have serious impacts on the collector's market.

So I guess all the real rare N64 games are being held by collectors and the only way for third-parties to make money now is by selling counterfeits?

grizz, I think you got it wrong here. it's not reproduction, it's full homebrew. how would they label it reproduction if it's entirely a new game ? doesn't make any sense to me.
Are we still talking about The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest? That's not a new game but rather one that was released on the GameCube. Somebody just ported it to the N64 and is making money off of Nintendo's work.

I stand corrected, my zelda knowledge is piss poor. sorry !
Ain't no big thing, my man. Easy mistake to make since Master Quest isn't too well known outside of hardcore Zelda circles.

Hey gamerjerome, thanks for setting us all straight on the specifics. :yeah:
