What's the difference between the regular and gold version of Yokai Dochouki?

The game code itself is the same.  The case and huey are gold colored and the back page of the manual is different.

Magical Story I


What's this one?  :-k


That is an auto-translated name, so it might be called something else. The Japanese name is 魔導物語 I.

I saw it listed on the OCNK game shop page, which has a pretty comprehensive price list:

As for Nexzr, the Japanese stores I've seen it for sale at are around 20,000 yen. The Summer Carnival version is being listed at half that price.

Yep.  It's one of the few Arcade Card games, which likely explains the cost (late game made in small quantities).

Any photos of this?

Huh, I checked ebay and the sold listings were way down.  recently too, and not PCEWorks.  Guess I'll just have to be patient

Likewise.  That's easily the Arcade Card title that I don't have that I want the most.  I don't think I'd make good enough use out of the game though to justify the pricetag.  C'est la vie.

Mad Stalker not that long ago was a $35 game. Past couple years the game on every platform it was made on has gone up like crazy.

I like the cut scenes and music on the pc-e but for arcade card the game could've been better. It pales in comparison to the x68k.
