Japan's Most Expensive Retro Games Available

Most-Expensive-Retro-Games-In-JapanThere are very few shops you can walk into and find copies of Whirlo for the Super Nintendo, Mega Man Wily Wars for the Sega Megadrive. Yet in Japan, the equivalent rarities can be found sitting there waiting to be bought... at a price.

Wired.com has recently published an article about the Japan's famous retro gaming superstores, Super Potato, Trader and Mandrake. Pictures of the gems hidden in these shops have populated this article, showing what the rich collectors of Japan (or die hard travellers) can have after surrendering their wallet over.

Including the elusive Yoshi's Cookie Kuruppon Oven de Cookie for the Super Famicom (limited to 500 copies), Darius Alpha for the PC Engine (less than 1,00 rumoured to exist) and a few of the Gold Famicom cartridges. Price tags around the 100,000 yen mark should not come as a surprise here.
