Unreleased SG-1000 city quizz cartridges (Tokyo, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, London)
Post Posted: Fri Jan 20, 2012 12:10 am
Sega's Okunari-san who is working on Virtual Console and Sega Ages series and is a retro Sega fanatic, during his excavation has recently stumbled on a small box of treasures at Sega Japan.


okunari: 6年ほど前に存在を確認していたものの、詳細を確認する前に引越しに伴って見失っていた宝箱を発掘することに成功。お宝の山。
(rough translation) ~~ A treasure box I initially found 6 years ago, but I had lost its sight during a move. Finally succeeded in finding it back. A pile of treasure.
[note how there is a mint copy of SG-1000 Pachinko which is a famously rare game]


okunari: うまれて初めてSG-1000の『パチンコI』を遊んだ。30秒くらい。
(rough translation) ~~ I played early SG-1000 game Pachinko. For about 30 seconds.


okunari: そして初めて見るSG-1000用ソフト。
~~ And.. SG-1000 cartridges I never saw before.


okunari: パリ。@ocornutjpさん見てるー?w 
~~ Paris. Omar did you see that? (laugh) [he is teasing me]


okunari: ロンドン。 @ocornutjpさん(ry 
~~ London


okunari: 肝心のゲーム内容はこれです。  国別クイズゲーム。マーク3でプレイしたら3択のうち1しか選べない。どうやらキーボードで遊ぶものみたい。勝手な想像だけど85年の「つくば博」の展示にあったゲームの1つなのかも。詳細わかる人いたら教えて下さい!w
~~ Essentially here's the content of the games. Per-country quizz cartridges. As I played them on the Mark III I could only select the first option out of 3. I guess it requires the Keyboard. As I imagine they were game used at the つくば博 exhibit in 1985. If anybody knows anything about them please let me know.


That's all we know about those software for now.

What's up with that pachinko cartridge? it looks like Safari Race with Pachinko underneath a torn label.

I have no idea. I imagine developers could have re-used existing prototypes or retail cartridges to stick in EPROM and do some tests.

Now wondering if maybe some of the Safari Race cartridges in the wild have a Pachinko label underneath :)

Also note there is a Master System western cartridge with no label on one of the picture, I asked about it and it turned out to be World Grand Prix (can't tell if the build is final or not).

According to a new tweet by Okunari
"あと3年前に発掘してツイートした謎のSG-1000用クイズゲームも、おそらくつくば博の展示プレイ用ソフトだったんじゃないかと思われます。 "

~ The cartridges I dug three years ago, apparently were used in the Tsukuba World Exposition" (in 1985)

@ocornut そういえば先月家で起動してみましたよ。SC-3000のキーボードで4択を選ぶゲームだったけど、うちのキーボード壊れてて1が選べなくてクリアできない(´・ω・`)
