Hyper - - FEATURE -

Nin­tendo cre­ated 90 spe­cial car­tridges for use dur­ing the Cham­pi­onships. Each of these grey, num­bered car­tridges, con­tains four switches in top left cor­ner that can be set to an on/off po­si­tion in or­der to al­ter game pa­ram­e­ters. These car­tridges were given out to fi­nal­ists af­ter the com­pe­ti­tion was over. Nin­tendo also pro­duced 26 gold com­pe­ti­tion car­tridges, which were given out as prizes in a Nin­tendo Power mag­a­zine com­pe­ti­tion. A Gold car­tridge sold on eBay for $100,000 in 2014, while the grey ones have sold for up to $18,000.
