FAQs

Here are some common questions that we've gotten in the past.

WHAT IS FAMICLONE GALAXY?

Famiclone Galaxy is a one-stop shop for all your retro gaming needs. In the past, our focus was on unlicensed, unauthorized, bootleg games for the Famicom, though we have also expanded operations to sell games for other platforms, such as the Sega Mega Drive, Game Gear, and Game Boy. We are based in Taiwan, and hope to raise awareness on this unique / alternative side of gaming history, which until now has generally been either ignored or discussed by those of the majority.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY ORDER?

Because the items ship from Taiwan, it generally takes about two and a half to three weeks to receive your parcel. Tracking is included with all packages, and we are always willing to assist when needed.

The indie / homebrew offerings from ITG-Soft take from around two to five weeks to ship, based on whether the order was placed during a peak time or not. Similarly, the T-shirts require about two weeks lead time before they can be shipped, since they are being manufactured for us by a local company.

WHY DO YOU SELL NON-GAMING ITEMS, SUCH AS SNACKS AND TEA?

The staff at Famiclone Galaxy feel that it is important to carefully pair up snacks, drinks, and games together to create the ultimate gaming experience. Add a bit of sparkle to your game nights with local artisan tea offerings, exotic flavors of potato chips, and unique munchies straight from Taiwan. Whether you desire something salty or sweet, we have an offering for every need.

DO YOUR OLD GAME CONSOLES INCLUDE CONTROLLERS / POWER SUPPLIES / AV CABLES?

Each listing specifies what comes with each game console bundle. Generally, we will include controllers and the machine. If we have the original power supply, we might also include it, though as many of the original power supplies have been lost to time (or have been broken), we see no point in sending a generic power supply, which would add increased weight to your parcel (and an added shipping cost) with little to be gained. We feel similarly about the inclusion of generic AV cables.

Some machines are being sold as gaming machines, and others are sold simply as collectible relics. Please check each listing carefully and message us if you have any questions or concerns.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU UPDATE YOUR STOCK?

We try to add new stock weekly, so check back often! Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list to stay updated on our latest products and promotions.

ARE BULK DISCOUNTS POSSIBLE? HOW ABOUT TRADES?

We are collectors and gaming historians at heart. We are always happy to chat with you, as maybe we can be of assistance.
