Item description

Gradius II (グラディウスII) is easily one of the best shooters on the Famicom. Amazing graphics and music made possible by custom hardware. From Wiki:

"The game was first ported to the Family Computer in 1988 and was never released outside Japan. Presumably this was due to the fact that the Famicom version employed a custom memory mapper dubbed the VRC4 which enhanced some of the game's graphics and sounds, such as animation and voices"

Technology aside, this is just a fantastic game and one that should be in every Famicom library. No Japanese required to play.

The game has been tested on an actual Famicom 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 Famicom games before buying. This cart will not run on an unmodified NES system. It should run on most Famicom clones but I cannot guarantee it's compatibility.

Loose Famicom carts will be wrapped in a removable plastic sleeve and then placed in a bubble wrapped mailer for shipping. Boxed or fragile games will be cushioned with bubble wrap or newspaper and put in a larger box. 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.
