Ok, I'm still quite new on this, but I've read enough that most carts are either boot or not and I can call it pretty well... but I have NO CLUE on this one. I recently procured a Kizuna Encounter MVS cart. The cart is original, the label is near perfect and is in the low serials (#750). Why do I bring up the serial? Well, take a look...

It appears that the board shares Savage Reign AND Kizuna Encounter NGH #'s on the chips. Everything appears to be original factory Neo Geo, there are no funky solders or anything. Did SNK for the early numbers strip down old Savage Reign carts to make Kizuna Encounters? I know that half the game properties made it over, so it wouldn't shock me. Or did I get some slick conversion?

it is the real deal, donīt worry.

both game share many elements with just a small palette swap.

so yes, they did kizunas with unsold savage reign chips.

Awesome, that's what I figured. Another mystery solved. Go team Venture!

snk created so much hype on savage reign, but the game release was postponed so many times that when it got released both graphics and gameplay were dated.
