How many of you have ever heard of the Kiddy Sun in Fantasia game?  Basically, it is a hack of Adventure Island.  You can watch the video of it here:

For the longest time, it has been debated as to whether the hack was officially licensed or just a bootleg of sorts, with scraps of information leaning both directions.

I have always suspected that the game was licensed from Hudson Soft, and is thus an official Famicom cartridge, and I have today confirmed this as fact.  We should throw this one up in the database, now there is another licensed game variant for people to go nuts over, trying to find.  Smiley

Never heard of it.  How did you go about confirming its authenticity?  The cart looks better than many pirates, but still looks very, um, Chinese.

Since I have a holiday this weekend, I hope to spend the evening writing an article about it.  I'll post a link here when I am done, but with what I have seen (and what I found today basically confirms this), this is a legit cart.

Arcade History has EraTech as a Chinese distributor - is that the case?

Yup, that is so.

In short, the trademark for HuEra (Hudson's Taiwanese project) is owned by the Era Tech guys.  The game is without a doubt endorsed by Hudson.

This "Kiddy Sun" is a horrible looking little creature.  I guess it was a popular show (?) at the time?

Took me a bit to get the game's title, but I think it's 孫小毛奇幻岛 .

So then it's maybe Sūn Xiǎo Mo Q​hun Dǎo or "Sun Xiao Mao Fantasy Island" (or Kiddy Sun Fantasy Island I guess).
