A copy of the rare Famicom prototype “Parody World: Monster Party” recently sold on eBay from seller tsunami.video.games, who found the rare gem in a dusty old box of kusoge.  The listing ended at an impressive £2,050.00.

This is only the second known copy of this game for the Famicom.  While it did see an official release in the US (as simply “Monster Party”), the version was heavily censored due to copyright concerns.  Auction winner BeaglePuss mentions in a Nintendo Age thread that “I have no doubt at this point that the game went unreleased due to copy write infringement and no other reason. Every boss in the game is recognizable from your favorite 80′s films.”  User MrMark0673, who had access to BeaglePuss’s newly acquired rarity, did a playthrough of the game and notes, “the copyright issues are epic throughout this one. There is on average one slam dunk law suit per level.”

Unlike the owner of the first known copy of the prototype, who chose to divulge very little information about the game, BeaglePuss plans on selling reproductions copies of the game in NES and, as long as manufacturing details can be worked out, Famicom forms.

Okay, so it's NES-related and not Famicom-related, but this poster is way cool.  It's a list of all the released NES games listed in a pretty unique fashion.

Cool translated interview with Masayuki Uemura, the chief hardware designer for the Famicom.  Why is it white and red?  Why was it named Family Computer?  Find out!

Fill out +Famicom Dojo's quick survey for a chance to win a free copy of their season 1 DVD. It's a great DVD if you don't already have it!

The video game graphic design blog Game & Graphics recently posted a gallery of pulse line carts and boxes.  The consistency of the label designs and the spectrum of cartridge colors makes the pulse line carts very photogenic. Check out their site for more photos and graphics.

Famicom homebrew! 

A new FC homebrew title, "Kira Kira Star Night," was released at Comiket 84 and will be available to the public soon.  The game has you controlling Fami-chan as she collects stars in order to help Paso-chan break a curse that has turned him into a mouse!  It doesn't have to make sense, it's a video game!

Check out the game's homepage for gameplay videos showing off some impressive graphics and catchy tunes.  You can also download a few songs from the soundtrack on the Japanese "events" page: http://kirakira-star-night.riki2riki.com/j_event.html

Interesting article about an interesting homebrew on an interesting website. Click!
Zooming Secretary is a breath of fresh air, or perhaps a gulp of fresh coffee. This platformer-meets-office sim, released in December 2011, is an entirely new game created for an entirely retro system...

FW forum and staff member Satoshi Matrix posted a recap of his long-running top 100 NES/Famicom games list. Unlike most top-x lists, he took his time and covered each game in the list with a good level of detail -- often including background information and promotional videos. The #1 entry should be coming soon, so take some time and catch up!
