This collection is something from Japan that many people don’t seem to know about. Basically the idea was that CD single soundtracks of Famicom games would be sold in the same way that trading cards are. You buy a package which looks the same as all the other packages and open it to find which random disc you get from the series! (along with a piece of yogurt flavored candy).
The back of the box lists 15 titles that are in the collection but also notes that the full set is 20 discs. This leaves 5 mystery titles that would be more rare than the others. In fact, 1 out of the 5 was extra rare. I’m happy let everyone know that I have managed to track down every single disc in this collection. Oddly, one of the 15 standard discs was the hardest to find…
#1 Super Mario Bros.
(please continue reading to find out where to get this one)
As you’ve noticed above; Metriod is missing from the links. This put me on a quest to find the last title which lasted hours. In the end, I was not able to find it on it’s own… However… I did find an online store selling the first 19 discs in the series for one crazy low price of $130
! This collection includes disc #12 Metroid
but as I just mentioned, disc #20 (Disk Writer), is missing from this collection. The first 19 discs can be found here at Golden Shop!
This collection combined with #SP above would total out to about $230 for the entire series… the series all together could easily sell for $350-$450.
The same store also sells the sealed boxes for $7
each. This would be cool to have, but since the soundtracks inside are random, you can never own the complete series factory sealed. To buy a sealed mystery box, check here at Golden Shop
