Bootleg Star Fox 2 Cartridges Appear on Ebay

Crazy like a fox!

Just days after the release of the SNES Classic which included the previously unreleased title Star Fox 2, bootleg cartridges of Star Fox 2 have appeared on eBay.

eBay listings (via Polygon) show that some of these cartridges are being listed for as much as $70 on the popular online storefront. The listings allegedly feature the SNES Classic version of Star Fox 2 complete with cartridge art, and also claim compatibility with actual SNES consoles.

Despite stock increases for the SNES Classic after the release of the NES console, initial offerings of SNES Classic units sold out in minutes at Gamestop. This coupled with the potentially collectible nature of these hacked cartridges means that some fans are paying almost as much for this game as the SNES Classic system.

These copies of Star Fox 2 aren’t exactly legal and with the game only earning a Mediocre score in our review we’d recommend waiting for more stock of the much more favorable SNES Classic itself.
