Hey everybody reading this, Im looking for some help in identifying a snes game I found while digging through my old storage unit. The snes game that caught my eye was this Tiny Toons Adventures Game. The cartridge is black and there is no warning label in the back i also recall the game being in japanese. (the writing and txt)
My guess would be maby its a developers preview?

Images are below:

If anybody has more information on this game it would help. I also checked ebay I couldn't find it the game maby im not trying hard enough?

The only SNES game that I know has ever been published in a black cartridge would be Killer Instinct, that's definitely an odd-ball you have on your hands. If it really is in Japanese (Considering it's an American cartridge), it could be rare. Whether it would be in demand and have collector's value is a different story though.

Edit: Upon further research, your game doesn't appear to even exist... The only version the game got was on the NES. Are you sure it's not fake?

definitely not a prototype, most definitely a fake, as to why anyone would bootleg that game is a mystery...whats the origin of the game besides the storage unit?

The label looks okay upon a very brief inspection.

I don't know if its fake. I got the game when I was a kid from my dad who originally found it from his job back then at a hotel.

I searched on it and I found out that it is indeed a game called Tiny Toon Adventure. But it seems that it has a grey cartridge

It seems that there was a "Tiny Toon Adventures" on NES, and that the SNES games are completely different from these.

I just noticed, there is no Super NES logo on the right of the cartridge, I'm looking up SNES games, and they all have the logo on the right. I think it's a fake.

Edit: Or is there? On second look, I can't tell if there is on your cartridge, the light is blocking it.

Edit 2: If you're willing to unscrew the cart, you should be able to tell pretty easily.

Oh, well then the label does indeed look good to my eyes. But I'm not an expert in this field. For a fake game, it begs the question why they went to the trouble of making their own cover art. I think the only way we're going to know is to have somebody knowledgeable in these things look at it, or you'll have to open it up and snap a picture.

Well I do know that the SNES game Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster Busts Loose was called Tiny Toon Adventures in Japan but I dont know what color the cartridge was. Also I am not sure but weren't Super Famicom cartridges different looking than the NA SNES cartridges?

Yeah, Super Famicom and EU SNES cartridges were completely different from American SNES carts.

I thought so. What it might be than is someone took a NA Killer Instinct cartridge (which is the only NA SNES game that I can think of that was black) and swapped the guts with the Japanese Tiny Toons game and slapped the label on it. Why someone would do that I have no idea.

Maybe OP should show us a picture (Or video would be even better) of gameplay?

looks like a bootleg or pirate release, probably "Buster Busts Loose". Pirates often messed up titles and artwork

Yeah, could be. How about OP looks up gameplay of the two SNES games and then plays his cart? That could answer a lot of questions.

Or you can sell it on eBay right away, before anyone finds out its a fake.
Since its SNES game and not a very desired one (But slap the word "RARE" on it, and you're bound to get buyers), your lucky to get $30-$50 for it, on a good day. The only people in the market that buy old video games are mostly buying it for nostalgic purposes because sentimental value is worth nothing.
