I don't think the Sonic 2 and Batman Returns SMSII versions came in special packs. I presume these packs with bonus games were released in the late years of SMS's lifetime, as a discount / special offer and possibly to give away any remaining stock. As far as I know, photos of SMSII versions have been found mostly in magazines/ads from early years of SMS2. So, my guess is that they came from an early and very small production run for preview reasons, before the mass production.
This is just my guess, maybe bkk has more info. His research is amazing!
Thanks Well, the "Comet Pack" sticker is the same design as the "Saturday Night at the Movies Pack" and "Unbelievable Value Pack", which were holiday 1993 bundles (Batman Returns was also included in "Saturday Night at the Movies Pack". Batman Returns had released earlier that year, so not too long before it was bundled. The question is if these games were just supplied seperately, or included in the box (surely they wouldn't fit in the hardware box if they also had software boxes).
Here's the internals of a SMS II Shinobi pack (French). Note the cartridge came without the box;
The rarest Shinobi EVER? Let's start a rumor and see if the prices go up.
It was 1998 my father was in the hospital waiting for a lung transplant and that is where i got my genesis/segacd i loved the way sega did games nothing can compare to the. genesis and what it did also my father died in the hospital waiting for his transplant
