My Reproduction Earthbound Naked & Exposed!!

Feb 2007
Kentucky, US
Broke open my reproduction "Earthbound" SNES cart today. And I was impressed that it was not a glop.

I was surprised to find a PC board with chips.

This is what the real Nintendo Board looks like.

Quite a big difference, but both do play identical. Interchanging the PC boards to the different shells, I found that the fake board was very tight. It did fit but there was a small cylinder of plastic that supported the original board which hindered a perfect fit. The Chips on the fake board arrangement prevented the fit. One can simply trim the plastic and the board would fit enabling me to have an English version on my Super Famicom in the original shell.

I apologize if this offends anyone.
