You've played the translated ROM, now play the questionably-legal cartridge for SNES! Yay!
I am a big fan of reproductions; I like being able to play a game on the actual system, legality be damned. IMO, if you're not going to release a game abroad, you're only tempting this sort of thing!
Just so you know, it appears to be based on an older version of the Aeon Genesis translation, not the newest one, which had some minor bugs that were never fixed.
Wanna hear a funny story? When I first saw the game on the site, the label image had a "SquareSoft" logo on it. I quickly pointed out this error, and the label was changed to show the Falcom logo in record time. ("Just doin' my civic duty, sir!")
Well, I'm off to save money for this, among other things.

I've been wanting to make my own Star Fox 2 beta cart for years (and was also considering ToP & Seiken Densetsu 3 translated carts) and these guys go and make a business out of it! Sheesh the SNES prices are high, though... I was just looking at their Genesis stuff for Monster World IV
"Ambition is the willingness to kill the things you love and eat them to stay alive."
Wow, Mega Man Wily Wars is quite a good price though! I may just consider this. Sure beats the price on ebay for one that is European that I would have to find a way to play on an American system anyway!
Sixty dollars is a lot. You could buy a gamepad and a TV out cable for that amount, play it via emulator on your TV almost as if it was on the real console and have enough left over to make a decent dent in the LE version of Oath in Felghana (or a slightly less sizable dent out of whatever Falcom has planned for December).
Still, I'm tempted by some of those games. FFV with the non-asstastic translation (okay, the GBA one was good enough but I already own that), Dragon Quest VI since they're sure taking their sweet time localizing the DS game, Seiken Densetsu III... LoZ: Parallel Worlds?! Ooh, me poor wallet. Don't think Radical Dreamers would ever be worth sixty dollars though.
No, willingly shelling out money for A New Theory is the problem. That's one of the most overpriced coasters in the history of gaming, the original is actually worth something. Not sixty dollars perhaps but something. Actually, I might pay sixty for the original Japanese cart with box and manual (there's a pretty cool retro gaming shop in Akiba where I could probably find it, too) but a reproduction, nah.
Maybe its just me but i'd rather just buy the Japanese copy and then have someone flash the english translated rom onto the original cart. That way I have the original with manual and cool box while still having the game in English.
