Russian Pirate Famicom
I just completed the purchase of this sweet game system. A complete Dendy Junior in original packaging. It’s a game console clone of the Nintendo Entertainment System. The NES (or Famicon, depending on region) never got released in the former USSR and the taiwanese jumped on that market by gifting the Dendy to the world. (wikipedia entry on Dendy)
The console I ordered already contains 104 preinstalled games and I really hope that one of the famous Mario clones is included. The Dendy was not only a hadware clone, many uhm game developers created weird games, like “Super Mario Bros 11″ or “Kickmaster”, which were all basically sprite swap games with tiny modifications.
Super Mario doing rolling attacks in Green Hill Zone? Yeah! Mario and Luigi saving the world as Chip’nDale? Fuck Yeah!
Once the package arrives I will do some proper unboxing and share the most outrageous content with you.
Oh and BTW, if you want one yourself the is still ONE left in this ebay shop here.
