I am working on a project on making a reproduction of Akumajō Special: Boku Dracula-kun. I want to make it as clean as possible and the only way I can do that is to take a direct translation from the box. I have a few pictures from another website to see if anyone here can help. If anyone can please help I would definitely appreciate it. I'll even offer to make a box and manual shipped to your door step if this all works out.

Box (back):

Oh yea if anyone has scans of 600dpi or better for this game. That would be awesome.

dont you need the original famicom cart as well as a 60 to 72 pin converter in order to make a repro of this one?

Yes, I have already done that and it's functional and ready to go. I just need these scans to make a new label, box and manual.

I have to admit, I'm curious again here if this is an MMC3/5 conversion, or if Brian built a VRC4 mapper for the game. I also have to ask: Are those grey cases new parts? He has the moulds, so he could have made grey cases anew, or he could dye clear cases to grey (as I have done), but they could be old parts, which is generally against the RetroUSB policy, so I'm pretty stumped.

I suppose I'll be adding this to my list of things to order for inspection. Bob-omb

I would assume it's probably an MMC5 conversion. I have a multicart with an MMC3 conversion of it and the HUD jitters a bit on that one.

Which would also assume that Brian has a MMC5 CPLD, although he has released no such mapper for the PowerPak. There is a VRC4 PowerPak mapper (by loopy) that I am guessing he converted to a single CPLD for this recreation.  Bob-omb

As usual, That RetroUSB label looks like shit and has their logo all over it....that ticks me off so much, if youre going to make a reproduction, make it look like what it SHOULD look like, as if it were an actual release. Heres my nice Original Konami style label:
