Listing Details

***NOTE: Loose Super Famicom Carts are light and the combined shipping is very low.  A single game will cost you $5 in shipping, but each additional game will be cheaper (for example the total shipping cost for 6 loose Super Famicom games will be $12 or less, so basically just $2 a game).  If you have any questions about combined shipping feel free to ask. ***

This is the original, uncensored, Japanese version of the absolute classic role-playing game Final Fantasy VI (ファイナルファンタシーVI). A must own title for any RPG gamer.

Locaization changes from wiki:

The original North American localization and release of Final Fantasy VI by Square for the Super Nintendo featured several changes from the original Japanese version. The most obvious of these is the change of the game's title from Final Fantasy VI to Final Fantasy III; because only two games of the series had been localized in North America at the time, Final Fantasy VI was distributed as Final Fantasy III to maintain naming continuity. Unlike Final Fantasy IV (which was first released in North America as Final Fantasy II), there are no major changes to gameplay, though several changes of contents and editorial adjustments exist in the English script. In a January 1995 interview with Super Play magazine, translator Ted Woolsey explained that "there's a certain level of playfulness and ... sexuality in Japanese games that just doesn't exist here [in the USA], basically because of Nintendo of America's rules and guidelines". Consequently, objectionable graphics (e.g. nudity) were censored and building signs in towns were changed (such as Bar being changed to Café), as well as religious allusions (e.g. the spell Holy was renamed Pearl). Also, some direct allusions to death, killing actions, and violent expressions, as well as offensive words have been replaced by softer expressions. For example, after Edgar, Locke and Terra flee on chocobos from Figaro Castle, Kefka orders two Magitek Armored soldiers to chase them by shouting "Go! KILL THEM!", in the Japanese version. It was translated as "Go! Get them!" Also, when Imperial Troopers burn Figaro Castle, and Edgar claims Terra is not hidden inside the castle, Kefka replies "then you can burn to death" in the Japanese version, which was replaced in the English version by "Then welcome to my barbecue!". Similarly, as Magitek soldiers watch Edgar and his guests escape on Chocobos, one swears in Japanese, "Son of a bitch!", which was translated by Ted Woolsey as "Son of a submariner!". The localization also featured changes to several names, such as "Tina" being changed to "Terra". Finally, dialogue text files had to be shortened due to the limited data storage space available on the game cartridge's read-only memory. As a result, additional changes were rendered to dialogue in order to compress it into the available space.

The game has been tested in an actual Super Famicom and plays great.  The photo uploaded is of the actual game I am selling.   Make sure that you have the necessary hardware to run Japanese Super Famicom games before bidding.  This cart will not run on an unmodified Super Nintendo system.  You can mod a Western Super Nintendo to play Japanese games with a simple to do and free mod.  Google it.  The mod only takes a few minutes. 

I am based in Japan so I charge the same price to ship to the United States, North America, Europe, etc.  I will charge the price listed as "U.S." regardless of where you live (unless you live in Japan and then I can quote you a domestic price).  I ship small orders standard airmail and they should arrive to most destinations within 7-10 days.

 

If you are making and order with several inexpensive games I will recommend SAL mail to you.  This takes a bit longer (2-3 weeks) but will save you some money.  The SAL prices will be less than the shipping costs listed on GameGavel for the items.  If you have a shipping preference please tell me when you request an invoice.  If you would like to change the shipping speed, let me know and I will update your invoice.

 

Loose carts and CD games will be wrapped in a removable plastic sleeve and then placed in a bubble wrapped mailer for shipping.  Boxed or fragile games will be cushioned with bubble wrap or newspaper and put in a larger box.  Please remember, the games will ship from Japan so please allow some additional shipping time.  Also during Japanese postal holidays (New Year's, Golden Week, Obon) orders will be delayed while the post office is closed. 

 

I am able to combine orders.  I will automatically combine orders and in nearly all cases lower the price. If you are buying lots of small items like loose carts or jewel case discs the combined shipping can be significantly less than what is listed.

 

If your total order is over 2kg it will need to be shipped either seamail (slow but cheap) or EMS (fast but expensive). You will have the option to choose one of these two methods.
