RetroUSB to Release Reproduction SNES Campus Challenge 1992

GoldNintendoCampusChallenge92In 1992, Nintendo held a competition known as Nintendo Campus Challenge across American Colleges. With only one competition cartridge left known to exist, RetroUSB has got it's hands on it to create reproductions for retro gamers to finally enjoy.

The original competition was held at 35 different colleges across America setting a challenge featuring three different games. First up was Super Mario World, requiring you to rack up 50 coins as quick as possible. Second was a 2 lap race on F-Zero and finally a couple of levels from Pilotwings.

Upon finishing the three, your score was calculated and compared with the rest of the competitors. The best player overall won a massive $10,000.

RetroUSB is hoping to release the reproduction cartridge in the next few weeks. Until then, the hardcore collectors can begin to drool over the limited edition gold versions set to hit auction on NintendoAge. But if high bidding isn't your thing, there is also a competition to win a gold version also at NintendoAge.
