Item description

Appare Gate Ball (あっぱれ!ゲートボール) is a PC Engine obscure sports game. OK, so there is a park near my house and early in the morning a group of retired people gather almost everyday to play gate ball. It is a game very similar (or the same?) as croquet. I have never seen anyone under the age of 70 playing it. Who would make a video game about this? Hudson that's who! It's actually not that bad. A bit barebones but I like the character profile art a lot. No Japanese needed to play.

The game has been tested on an authentic PC Engine system and plays great. The photo uploaded is of the actual game I am selling. Check the condition before buying. Make sure that you have the necessary hardware to run Japanese PC Engine games before bidding. This card will not run on an unmodified Turbo Grafx 16 system. It should run on clone systems such as the Retro Freak but I do not have one to test the compatibility.

HuCards will be wrapped in a removable plastic sleeve and then placed in a bubble wrapped mailer for shipping. Please remember, the games will ship from Japan so please allow some additional shipping time. Also during Japanese postal holidays (New Year's, Golden Week, Obon) orders will be delayed while the post office is closed.
