I regret to inform that we have lost the auction on the cancelled Famicom/NES game, "Indy the Magical Kid". It ended up selling for a total of 1,501,000 yens (approx $15,000 USD) with 130 bids. We quite simply did not have enough funds.🙁

That's another prototype we'll likely never see again...We would like to thank everyone who shared our initial tweet and everyone who pledged donations. To the few who donated early, your donations have been refunded. Thank you.

Is this really the end of it? There's no way to contact the winner?

Impossible since YJA censors the name of the bidders of course.

To make things worse, the winner of the auction left an anonymous message saying he bought it to stop "copy sales" and dumps. Nice.

I'm hope he is happy that he spend 1.5 million yen on a video game just so nobody can dump it. "I will always protect it as a Japanese treasure" is what he says. This is insane.

I am extremely disappointed in this outcome, especially since he is essentially trying to keep the game out of western hands so we don't "tamper with their culture". This is my final statement on the subject. Regular posts will resume within a few days.
