    Default What Was That? [high priced game]

    What was the game that you guys posted about maybe a year ago? It was the one that was for neo geo pocket on ebay that sold for 21,000 dollars...it was homebrew...I dunno. And, was it 12 copies existed or less.....or more?

    That was for the AES home console, not the Pocket. It was Kizuna Encounter and it's not a homebrew. They just produced very few and even fewer have been verified as authentic.

    The European version to be specific. The Japanese version is nowhere near as expensive and rare. The MVS version is even more common and cheaper.

    Kizuna Encounter, as Gamereviewgod so rightly explained.

    The ironic thing is that the Japanese and English versions of the game are identical. Or more precisely, it's a game where the language setting in the NeoGeo setup determines what language appears. So what you are actually paying the huge money for is the English packaging and cart label
