Very weird Mortal Kombat Super Famicom/SNES cart.

Any ideas what this is? I assume it's a bootleg. Says USA on the front, but it's definitely a Super Famicom cart. I bought it because the label is amazing, but haven't yet been able to test it out.

It says "Nintendo Super Ninteendo Entertainment System" in the lower-right of the label. Also, "Programmeo".

Man, I want to see it in action. I am curious of they hacked the ROM at all.

I looked around. There was an archived eBay listing for this same thing. Definitely bootleg, but still interesting.

Oh man you need to make a video or something of this I want to see what kind of crazy lies on that cart.

Hopefully, I'll get my hands on a PAL to Super Famicom converter this week. I'll post a video if I can get it to work.

That is the most boot-leg looking Johnny Cage I've ever seen.

The thread title made me think this might be a creepypasta. Which, come to think of it, is pretty hard to do without a game with some amount of text, like Pokemon or Zelda. MK creepypasta would be something, alright.

I'm not sure such a thing is really possible. Unfortunately, you might either have to just get a super famicom or something like a retrode with which you could dump the rom and emulate it. Weirdly enough, the Super Famicom is the cheaper option, I think. The retrode seems rather expensive (the site says 65 Euros) and I got a Super Famicom from Japan to Australia for less than around 30 of your pounds sterling including shipping, got some av cables for 5 bucks off ebay and I use a mega drive adapter to power it (probably the best solution for powering famicoms and super famicoms outside of Japan). That's a deep, dark hole to fall in to though :P

Wow, that is a really, really bad bootleg cart. Seriously, that's hilarious.

That is amazing. The melty anime faces, Johnny's deformed claw arm, the hand-drawn logo, the typos... that is a treasure you hold, sir. Keep that beauty in a glass case.

Update: ANNNNNND Done.

@madman356647: Curse you I was gonna do that!! The heads a little small though... You should put just the head in the shot and none of the rest of the body.

Just found another strange bootleg on ebay. link

Those screen shots don't even look 16bit to me.

That's because it's ostensibly a famicom game. Bootleg video games be crazy.

Between the Christmas attire for Sonic & Tails, the MK3 art for MK2, and the MK: Annihilation logo on MK3, part of me wants to own this.

I got stacks of that type Chinese carts. Some pretty cool stuff on them - Tekken, Street Fighter V
