This is quite the awesome find, really interesting information!
So… only 100 copies of SD Gunam were made? That is extremely low, I would have expected a few times that much. Imagine, it’s only 5 factory boxes of 20 pcs each… Well, according to his last reply in this thread, 100 was the minimum order Nintendo would do; looks like they went with the bare minimum to at least recoup some of the development costs.
BTW, he mentions reproductions of the game being sold overseas a few times, probably referring to the translated release. 🙂
For archival, following are all of @Yoshidamian’s tweets in this thread:
100 from sd gundam that cant be true
i myself already had about 15 to 20 copy’s in my hand off this game ( originall japan release ) in the past
and that for somebody that dont live in japan but just in the netherlands
It will be a low print but it have to be more then 100
this game is not very hard to find in japan ( only its expansief )
from the 4 rare japan games i think this one and space invaders are the 2 easy to find
