Title: DK Arcade for Intellivision - CIB Release
Post by: TrekMD on April 01, 2013, 02:05:19 AM
Classic Game Publishers will be selling a new version of DK Arcade that is boxed with overlay and a new label. Here are the details as posted by them on AA:

Due to some heavy lobbying from certain fans, DK Arcade is about to be released 'CIB' or 'Complete in Box'. It will retail for $60 US plus shipping and handling.

Do you own the original Elektronite cart only relasese? If so, you may be satisfied with simply a cartridge. However, you may wish to have the CIB version, but don't want to 'buy the game again'. We have a solution we hope that you will be happy with. If you send Classic Game Publishers the original loose cartridge in the mail, you will be able to purchase the game complete in box for $30 US plus shipping and handling. This offer can not be combined with other discounts that may be offered (such as a bundled D1K and D2K package)

The new CIB version will be the same EXCEPT, that the voice defaults to ON, and it is in an LTO shell with a very attractive sticker.

The box will feature a hologram Elektronite serial number, come with a full colour manual, and two DK Arcade overlays in an attractive gatefold design.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this exchange offer, please message me for shipping details.


The trade-in program is a cool thing they are doing but this is also an opportunity for folks to get the game for the first time. Here are some images of what the new carts, box, etc. look like.

I really like the new label and cart. Looks like the old Activision designed cart for the Intellivision.

It does look great and the trade-in program is a great idea.  I'm going to trade my current cart for one of these.  :)

Elektronite is really raising the bar on how a Homebrew Game should be released.

For anyone interested, Naberhood is offereing DK Arcade again.  I got this email today:

Quote
I am producing a limited supply of DK Arcade. They are for sale now on my website: https://naberhood.com (https://naberhood.com)
   
They are $45 each plus shipping.
 
 I have changed the postage calculation and PayPal fees are now included in the price of an item.
 
 Notes:
 The USPS has increased all postage to addresses outside the US, but I have noticed that you can get two or three items shipped for the same postage price.
 
 The USPS has also increased the rates inside the US. First class postage will only be used when ordering 1 item and priority will be used for shipments with more than 1 item.
