The son of previous years, I presented here some Super Nintendo games published by South Korean Hyundai. From, I had not updated the pages of my collection because I was busy with other things, such as V2 finish my record on Super Gam * Boy from Samsung, I invite you to discover or rediscover. This article is now almost complete, so I finally decided to devote time to market of the South Korean Nintendo 16bit. It was much harder for me to get hold of games Super Comboy (the Super Nintendo Coréenne) and photograph all angles as I had done with their counterparts SEGA. This is not unrelated to the coast of present popularity and overall high of the Super Nintendo in all countries of the world. Popularity means that the number of collectors wishing to purchase games for this console is becoming more important every day. This results in a steady increase in prices of these, and as a collection “niche” than Korean games is no exception to the phenomenon (almost 200% in 2 years).
To be honest this is one of the reasons why I hesitated to publish this article and share my info, because I know that this kind of “paper” generally does add fuel to the fire, especially as some collectors are willing to splurge to satisfy all their desires.
After careful consideration, I am to the idea that some games are now out of reach for me (This is valid also for other platforms), I decided to publish my topic. I hope you enjoy the experience.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Master List Hyundai Super Comboy 슈퍼 컴 보이 !
As you can see on the Master List, I identified so far 34 outputs Hyundai / Official Cost, 1 bootleg et 1 Official accessory. After years of research and exchange with various collectors I am now confident that this represents the entire Super Comboy catalog. There are also Japanese imports, some of which include a fold-out leaflet in black & white written in Korean (Romancing Sa-Ga 2)… difficult to know the exact number, especially as most seem beings RPG with lots of Japanese text (other genres like fighting games were rather imported from USA). We can scarcely consider these games as a part of the official catalog (unlike NBA JAM T.E. which was the subject of a refurbishment by Hyundai from a Japanese version). The list is not exhaustive.
(When a link is available, you can click on the title of a game to get more information about it).
• Outputs Official :
Super 20 in 1 – Super 20 Day – GL (Game Line) GL game lines
• Imports Japanese Korean incluants a leaflet fold black & white (there are certainly other) :
