Here's a story for all of you collectors: if you happen to have a spare 650,000 yen lying around ($6,500), then you can buy yourself all 1,051 Famicom cartridges. Of course, this'll require you to travel to the Mandrake's headquarters, the "Mandrake Complex." This, of course, will require you to defeat 8 bosses and use their powers to get inside the building.
Once you're inside, and you've defeated the giant lizard, and found that your princess is in another castle, you'll have to somehow convey to the clerk that you would like to purchase the immense collection sitting in the display window. But, considering you managed to make your way to the Mandrake Complex and Japan all on your own, I think this shouldn't be too hard.
Many people who pass by the Mandrake Complex stop for a few minutes, especially with friends or loved ones to reminisce about games they used to own or how they'd love to buy the whole collection.
So, how would you like to own every Famicom game ever released in stores?
