    Default Balloon Fight GBA - Really Rare?

    Balloon Fight is my favorite NES game. Apparently there's a GBA version under the NES classic series but I never see them on ebay or elsewhere unless its the japanese famicom GBA version. It did have a North American release so how rare is this game and what would a loose NA copy be worth?

    How sure can you be? Even GameFAQs says it was Japanese-only.
    (I definitely recall Nintendo only released eight games in the first batch of Classic NES games, and four in the second. GameFAQs does list 12 games and Balloon Fight isn't one of them.)

    I think Balloon Fight might have been one of those e-reader games. Could that be what you're thinking of?

    Indeed, I believe the NA releases were:
    eight of the ten games in Famicom Mini Vol. 1, missing Mappy and Star Soldier.
    And then set 2 of the Classic NES series was
    Dr. Mario from FM vol. 2
    and Zelda II, Castlevania, and Metroid from vol. 3.

    Perhaps you're correct. I could have sworn though that I've seen pictures of the NA style cart similar to the Donkey Kong one I just got yesterday. Perhaps I'm just remembering wrong.

    I've started doing some research into these e-readers, looked up some video and I'm intrigued. Can't find any video on Balloon Fight unfortunately but if I can find one cheap and pick up some of these cards cheap I may get one.
