Are these legit Sealed games or Not?--Help Seriously Needed

Alright. I was offered these US NGH sealed games to buy. They look awesome, but was wondering authenticity based on one of the pics. It's the third picture link, where you see the Epilepsy card in French and on the back of the insert. This doesn't seem normal for a US version of the game..does it? Excuse my ignorance if nothing is really wrong, but I really can't verify anything else because they are sealed. The seller is located in France no less....Maybe an epilepsy card was just inserted because of the fact that the game is located in France.....

Here are the pics (bandwidth intesnive)

Need some advice, please help out.

Thanks alot :)

SHOCKbox Developer,
It looks legit. The epilepsy card I don't understand because I don't ever remember one coming with the Euro version.
How much is it selling for? I have been looking for one for a while with no scratches on the cart .
Just curious...

The epilepsy Warning on the back is normal on new games.
I had already seen exactly the same with a new Metal Slug X US.

Yeah, I actually have two original inserts(NO I did not sac them!) but when I have owned the cart on numerous occassions and the yellow epilepsy warning card we used to get stopped being placed in the game before the release of Ftal Fury 3.
good luck.

ok, well, if that is the case, why is it in French for a US version of the game? Still seems a little strange......don't you think?

Every game entering French territory must wear those epilepsy warning messages.
The one pictured is the usual sticker importers put on their games to legally import them.

It's usually easily removed from those plastic snap lock cases with no glue left.

I don't see anything really strange for me.
All instructions, writings on the game are in english.
It must be considered as an import game, not a PAL one, and there is an epilepsy warning that must be put in FRENCH langage.

If you look some pictures of shawn's games from France, such as Puzzled, there are 2 manuals.

For old games, there were a french manual, it was for the law.
Same went for megadrive jap games, there were a little paper, a short translation in french.
Sellers were obliged to do that.

Hope i answer to your question.

EDIT: If you can buy them, just buy them.
And keep them new :)
