From the day we put together our first Repro, popped it in our SNES, flicked the switch and watched as the screen light up, we had no idea what this simple hobby we started one night in our basement would become. It began as a way for us to collect and play games that were once a mystery to us, published by our favorite companies but lost overseas for years, waiting for the words on screen to be recognizable here in North America. We’ve come a long way from that first copy of Secret of Mana II and with the help and support of the NintendoAge community, the people who spent hours translating our favorite titles and those who started the Repro Revolution before us we’ve turned that first cartridge into something we can share with all Collectors.
So without further ado we’re back! ReproBros has been silently hiding in the shadows of our basement the last few months, slaving away to make our Repros even more collectible and closer to an original SNES game than ever before. From day one we’d always wanted to see our Carts in official sized boxes but we knew it was a huge undertaking that would need time. Thankfully that time has come! With the help of Vince who many may already know from his fantastic work found at UncleTusk.com, we’ve been able to take the box art we created and printed the best quality SNES boxes around. Add in a custom poster, a box protector and you’ve got yourself one of our new SNES complete in box Repros.
Every complete in box game comes with one of our SNES repro carts, handmade with the highest of quality and brightest of labels. Every cartridge available in a variety of colorful paintjobs at your request, personalize and customize your Repro the way you want. But it gets better with our new SNES official sized boxes, designed to resemble the original style of the North American SNES games to seamlessly sit alongside your collection. Watch out as well as many of our CIB games also feature a full sized 17”x11” game poster. All of this wrapped up and tucked snuggly away with an insert tray and box protector to keep your new Repro safe for years to come and all to admire.
Although we were never the first to bring the fun of Repros to the retro community and we certainly won’t be the last, as it seems more happy meal quality Repros are popping up massed produced. We hope to continue to give people the highest quality Repros that they can be proud to display in their collection among other great works by some of our favorite makers like TimeWalk, RoseColouredGaming, FishyFaceGames, UncleTusk and everyone else striving to make quality over quantity the most important thing when it comes to collecting.
So check out our new updated games and stay tuned for an upcoming Puzzling Peripherals Post!
