Rarest Games for Famicom / NES ?

Post by Gamersparadise » Mon Jun 13, 2011 10:22 pm

Which are the rarest games ( cib / complete boxed ) for Famicom and NES ?

Im not sure exactly, but I hardly find those one :

( FAMICOM / Japanese Verisons )

Double Dragon 1
Guevara (Gepara) aka SNK Guerilla War
Super Contra
Akumajou Dracula ( Castlevania 1 )
Prisoner of War
Wai Wai World
Mighty Final Fight
Rockman Series
Top Secret Hitler no Fukkatsu ( Bionic Commando )
Crisis Force

As you see Im maybe only interrested in Actiongames, but which are rare at all ? and more important what else is out there to collect ? ( expept those gold cartridges and limited Tournament games, only regular boxed games )

Thank you

Depends. There's lots of different rares that were US only (Gold Champ cart for example), UK or Jap. Hard to say without knowing which country interests you.

Is Mighty Final Fight that rare? I picked it up a near mint copy last month for £30, it didn't seem all that hard to come by for me as eBay and Yahoo Japan had a few copies each when I checked.

Bionic Commando definetely seems tough to get especially in good condition not to mention expensive. I'm still trying to track down a copy for myself but have had no luck so far.

Rockman wise its only really the first 2 that are uncommon (and even then they tend to appear on yahoo japan on and off regularly but most of the time they have crazy buy it now prices attached to them) I've seen plenty of Rockman 3-6 pop up on auction sites and online stores for reasonable prices while I've been on the look out for Rockman stuff.

I'm mainly just trying to get Capcom related Famicom stuff at the minute but the games I've been having real problems tracking down complete are both Chip & Dale games. Not sure if those really are rare or I'm just looking in the wrong places...
