NEW ARRIVAL: Complete Japanese Sega Saturn Shooter / Shmup Collection! - BRAND N
Well, isn't that a sight to behold? Amazingly we've never created such a package before and we thought it was about time. Some of these games have been expensive and rare for a very long time (i.e. Hyper Duel and Blast Wind). Some of them have been expensive for a long time (i.e. Radiant Silvergun). In the last year or two, we've been amazed at how many of these games have been appearing less and less often in brand new/sealed form. Our suppliers seem to have less and less of them, the stores in Japan seem to get them less often, ebay has them for sale less often... we've actually been trying to create this package for a while but we sold a few of the games after customers requested them and we thought they wouldn't be so hard to stock again but we ended up being very wrong about that. Games we've had in stock in sealed form almost continuously for many years seem to suddenly be very hard to get now. Less than a year ago, we had a new Image Fight & XMultiply for sale for about 150 with a faded spine. One of our customers tried to negotiate the price with us, saying "you'll never sell it at that price because it's faded". We declined his offer and soon afterwards sold the game. Fast forward less than a year to July 2015 and we just sold another new one on ebay, also with a faded spine, for just under 300. So much for NEVER being able to sell one for 150! Anyway...

How to create such a package? Which games to include and which ones to exclude? As mentioned above, we've gone for trad vertical/horizontal 2D shooters (although some of them do use polygons). So no 3D shooters like Space Harrier or Panzer Dragoon. No FPS Doom-stle games (so no 1999, despite it being utterly brilliant). No tactical shooters like Gungriffon. Although this could create a bit of controversy, no action games with shooter elements so no Contra-style games (i.e. Metal Slug or maybe Assault Suit Leynos 2). After some deliberation, we decided to add Wolf Fang SS, which is basically a [mostly] ground-based shooter. An old customer said we shouldn't included it as it's like Metal Slug but we feel Metal Slug really is an action game whereas Wolf Fang is really a shooter which maybe looks like an action game. It's impossible to say whether we've done the right thing by including it or not but we believe we have.

So, all of these games are of course genuine original games. The regular jewel car games are all cellophane sealed with tear-off strips. With Sega Saturn games, all 'fat case' and double CD case games are shrink-wrap sealed. A few of the shrinkwrap sealed games do have a couple of little frays and tears.

How we arrived at the price: we priced all of the items up at what we are currently selling or have recently sold items in similar condition. The total came to 9365.43. So we've rounded it down to 9199.99. It's not a huge discount but it was very hard to find these games and we're in no rush to sell. The longer they remain unsold, the harder they'll be to find and we know we could happily just split this package any time we want if we need to.
