SNES ROM or Cartridge?

Yo-Yo Shuriken is an actual game for the Super Nintendo / SNES / Super Famicom console. You can buy a ROM version of the game here, and use it with a SNES emulator for any system you like. Here are a few examples:

If you want to play it on a real console, you can buy a beautiful game cartridge (with handcrafted box and manual) from Catskull Games.

Yo-Yo Shuriken - Boxed release

The cartridge is made from newly built elements (PCB, shells, etc) all designed and hand assembled in the US by Catskull himself. The cartridge is region-free. It has been tested and working on NTSC SNES, PAL SNES, JP SFC, and Analogue Super Nt. The box and manuals are also printed and hand assembled in the US, using materials that make them as close as possible to the original SNES releases from the 90's!
