Epoch Super Cassette Vision

Recommended Posts

Here's an interesting little system that gained some popularity in Japan in the void left by Atari's delay in entering the market, and prior to Nintendo entering with the Famicom.

Epoch followed up next with another console around the time if the Nintendo Famicom's release. This console was called the Epoch Super Cassette Vision an was comparable in gameplay and graphics to the Atari 5200 and ColecoVision:

Not a bad little system! Man I LOVE systems from other parts of the world. Funny how different the popularity of different consoles were worldwide. Here are some games on this system that looked pretty cool.
