Several years back, shortly after @OptOut and I became friends, he bought a copy of F-Zero X for the Nintendo 64 and he made a startling discovery. There was a special white sticker applied to the back of the box, with the NUS-ROC code, branding this as an official Taiwanense version game. Now before we get too far, it's important to mention that on every other N64 game officially imported into the country, there was a small round sticker affixed to the front of the box. This has that sticker too. The large white sticker on the back though, has never been seen on any other game, and further more, Nintendo also included an extra insert, in Chinese, in this package. That seals the deal on this game being an official Taiwanense version game. At the moment, I only know of three of these to exist, though surely there are more; however, the print run must be quite small. To top it off, with it being a popular series like F-Zero, this is definitely approaching grail territory imo, definitely one of the truly rare N64 games that region collectors should watch out for Edited October 18, 2020 by fcgamer 6 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
