Does anyone buy snes reproductions?

If you do what websites have you used or prefer.

Also what is the best reproduction you have gotten?

I have bought Terranigma and Treasure of the Rudras from jjgames.. They have some reproductions in stock at times. The quality is good but I don’t know where they got the cartridges from.

Timewalk used to have some nice ones. Ebay is a good option. Are you looking for any games in particular?

I want to jelly boy for the snes that was formatted for NTSC.

I heard about this game. What are your impressions thus far? The game isn’t fully translated, is it?

Such a shame that Timewalk no longer operate.

Here are a few sites that pop up a lot:

http://www.shopflashbackgames.com/

http://www.gamereproductions.com/

http://www.ocdreproductions.com/

 

This fairly new UK-based site does both PAL or NTSC repro’s. They even do a translation service if you want to alter your Jpn cart into English language.

Antarch, you might want to check out JCRetail if you’re looking to buy more repros in the future since they’re a Canadian site with reasonable prices ($39.99 CAD per game).  I’ve never bought anything from them personally (since I’m not really into repros) but thought their selection and prices looked pretty good.

 

Then again, repro prices seem to be dropping everywhere due to increased competition.

Marvelous is pretty good the dialogue is translated but some of the menus aren’t so far it is still playable and I am enjoying it. It’s probably the most it will ever get translated. It has a lot of funny parts too from the character interactions.

 

I bought a game from JC retail. Didn’t like the game but the cart was nice and the game itself was presented nicely and it shipped pretty quickly

Have you ordered from them in the past? The site seems a bit sketchy and the selection appears to be very small, don’t you think? 5 games?

Not sure. The site’s looks does not appear very professionnal.. But if their products are nice it might not matter after all.

I use a lot or reproduction carts for my youtube channel where i review japanese translated games. I have used

 

flashbackentertainment

lostclassics

reproductiongames.com

etsy -superpixelbrothers

and ebay.

 

each has its own pros and cons. Lost classics was fast but their label glue is weak also the game wouldnt work in my snes mini but loaded fine on my original one. Both my fire emblem games have peeling top labels.

Flashback is very high quality but it takes forever to arrive.

Reproductiongames for some reason only work in my snes mini. With exception of clock tower

etsy i bought terranigma label was decet game worked fine

 

I have had great luck on eBay bahamut lagoon, star ofean, and tales of phantasia. Not a single issue with one of them go figure.

id recommend flashback the most though it is the priciest.

im seein some sites on this thread im gonna check out. Ive been wanting to play marvelous another treasure island for years!
