Celebrate Christmas In Retro Gaming Style With RetroZone's 2011 Homebrew Xmas Cartridges

Celebrate-Christmas-In-Retro-Gaming-Style-With-RetroZones-2011-Homebrew-Xmas-CartridgesForget sending Christmas cards to your fellow retro gamers this year, RetroZone has everything you need to send a few twinkly tree lights to that special gamer. The online store is now offering personalised homebrew Christmas cartridges for the Super Nintendo and Nintendo NES with a custom message of your choice.

That's right, should you purchase one of these Christmas cartridges from RetroZone, you will have the option to put your very own festive message within the game code, which will then sit rather nicely above a warm fireplace or on the title screen of a festive game (depending on which cartridge you go for). These cartridges are not the first time RetroZone have spiced up our holidays, as this trend of bright lights and festive cheer has been going on for a good three years.

The Super Nintendo 16-Bit Xmas 2011 Cartridge comes with a homebrew game included known as Christmas Craze, while the Nintendo NES's offering known as (surprisingly) 8-Bit Xmas 2011 features a festive homebrew version of Warlords.

To make these even more appealing than being 'yet another homebrew release for the collection', the cartridge also doubles up as a Christmas tree replacement packed with plenty of twinkly lights. Once you power on the cartridge, a sequence of lights will put any of your existing decorations to shame as they shine brightly through the translucent case.

And on that note, should you already be well aware of these cartridges and be looking to buy these two new additions, here is the monster you could be creating which could easily illuminate an entire street...
