    Yep, Shubibinman Zero was once a BS Satellaview only game but today Columbus Circus have released it officially on Cartridge in Japan! Check out this quick unboxing and gameplay video.

    Good video - thanks for that. I think the company making it is Columbus Circle, though. Not Columbus Circus.

    Yeah, the new logo looks so generic and childish. They old one was pretty stylish IMO.

    No worries. I'm sure there are many out there that didn't know this game was getting a psychical release.

    Having issues with my brother's copy so far. :( Only got it to boot one time, and then reset soon after that.

    Going to bring my SNES over to his place this weekend and give it a try.

    Are you using a NTSC machine? That could be the issue.

    Yep. It's NTSC. We did get it working though.

    We played through it on my SNES Jr. The system is modded so it doesn't need a converter. However, we ended up using the converter anyway.

    My theory is the thickness of the connector is slightly different from an official cart, so the connection isn't the greatest.

    Strange. I know the cartridge shell is a little thicker but the PCB seemed fine.

    We are finally making a video covering this game. It's part of a two-part series. Here is part one:
