FAMICOM MULTICART PAGE UPDATED
July 6th, 2008 - 6:09 pm - Posted by Martin Comments: 1

Well it may seem a little quiet around here but I'm actually hard at work behind the scene. Lately I've redone the Famicom multicart page which actually wasn't that old (January 2008) but it would've been nearly impossible to load using the old layout.

That and 35 new cartridges added, as well as more to come - I've got another 30-40 cartridges sitting on my desk waiting to be added to the database.

Click here to go directly to the Famicom Multicart page.

Oh yeah I almost forgot to place a request for pictures of Famicom multicarts not already listed as well as NES ones for a future project. Scans are preferred but photos will do also :-)
