Recca Summer Carnival 92 (Nintendo Famicom) on eBay

SummerReccaCarnival92A true retro rarity has just arrived on eBay, Recca Summer Carnival 92. Released late into the Nintendo Famicom's life as part of a warm up to Naxat Soft's soon to be held Shmup competition. Released in limited quantities, this one holds a rather high price tag.

Noting the success Hudson Soft had success holding Shmup competitions, Naxat Soft were quick to jump on the bandwagon. By the time Recca Summer Carnival 92 arrived, Hudson Soft was already hosting competitions on the more powerful PC Engine CD with hit titles such as Spriggan.

Despite Naxat Soft technically being behind in the race, their Recca Summer Carnival went down in history as being the best shooter ever developed for the Nintendo Famicom. Naxat Soft somehow managed to push the Famicom to it's real limits, really making us question what else is possible on the 8-bit system.

And according to Wikipedia, hacking into the ROM of the game can bring up the Sega logo onto the Famicom setting it up to explode.

Today it is a very sought after item. Which makes this recent arrival on eBay rather interesting. Not only is it a complete copy, but a brand new one. With the price tag of $999, to some it might seem over the top, but to others a potential purchase.
