Item description

Demon Sword / Fudou Myououden (不動明王伝) is a side scrolling sword action game from Taito. The NES version was one of my all time favorite games as a kid. I am replaying it now because I learned from wiki that the Japanese version is quite different.

1. There are six more stages and several bosses in the Japanese version that are unavailable in the North American version.

2. The player in the North American version has a vitality gauge for each life remaining, while the player in the Japanese has only life count.

3. There are more items and magic spells available in the Japanese version.

4. The ending in the Japanese version has extra scenes and text cut from the North American version.

So it is worth having both. Can be played without knowing Japanese.

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.
