While browsing on AliExpress as I am sometimes wont to do, I came across a number of sellers who are selling Another Story SNES cartridges for US systems:

https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=SB_20170408054515&origin=y&SearchText=sailor+moon+another+story

I was wondering if anyone here has bought one of them and can attest to whether or not they work. I'd like to be able to play the game and have never seemed to be able to work out how to use the necessary emulators to play it on my laptop, so this seems like my best chance at playing (provided these copies work and aren't 100% bogus)

I haven't bought any, but I have heard things about fanmade hacks and translations of various NES and SNES games working as intended on their respective NSTC systems.

Yeah, back when TenchiForum was around, they sold some limited copies of the SNES RPG which even included the box & manual.

I have a US cartridge that I bought at a local video game trading store, and it works perfectly. I can't attest for these copies of it however.

I decided to buy a copy (they're not expensive so I figured what the hey). Will let you know how it turns out when it gets delivered!

Well, the game arrived yesterday and I tested it out a little while ago. The game works, but the cartridge doesn't save (which I guess means I need to replace the battery? Help? :? )

Anyway, from the little bit I've played, it seems like an interesting enough game. I just wish the people who translated it hadn't included honorifics and things like "Senshi" and "Ginzuishou" :dead:

It is interesting and lots of fun. Its hands down the best SM game out there. The story is cool and quite well done. I also like how they tangle 90s anime with the manga aspects as well as completely new plot additions. I think the best thing about this game is that it feels like people behind it not only knew a lot about SM but also really liked it and knew what they're doing which isnt really the case with many other games based on movies/tv shows which often are just cash grabs

And yes i guess it might be the battery.

They did the right thing by including them. If it's from Japan, I want the honorifics. And perhaps "Ginzuishou" fit better than "Siilver Crystal." You have to consider the number of bytes they have to change and not make things move around.
