    It's obviously fake as fuck.
    You really think Nintendo would ever produce that kind of a picture on a GB cartridge?
    Not to mention the image being from the 2010's it's stupid meme fad.

    No, it's fake, but the game on it might be a bootleg or a hack.

    Can you not see the sheer amount of detail on Mario's face? Obviously real /sarcasm

    Not sure if OP forgot his /sarcasm or if he really needed help....

    Google is your best friend. I literally found the answer in 2 seconds of basic Google-fu

    I beg to differ from everyone here, this is obviously real. /s

    edit: I meant legit because obviously it's real. /s

    If you do end up getting it, I'd be interested in what game actually resides on the ROM.
    Just for curiosity sake.

    Looks totally legit. I would buy it if I had enough willpower to figure out aliexpress.

    This game looks like a bootleg. It probably works, but it is not an officially licensed game from Nintendo

    my dad works for nintendo.
    like dinoh said lol the picture is a 2010 meme lol.. this is a joke cartridge... some cases it doesn't even have a game in it... (or someone just put a sticker on a true mario cartridge and is selling it for lulz)

    as for identifying a bootleg (a fake cartridge) you see in the TOP where it just says "GAME"? that's the obvious sign for bootleg copies
    a real cartridge would had said "game boy" or game boy colour (depending on the console), but never just "GAME"
    the cartridges that has "GAME" on them, are fake copies you could get on sketchi small stores (usually owned by a chinese\indian\arab\indian guy) you could get theese cartridges for cheap, and there were loads of "999999999 in 1" catridges (which just have 4-10 games with a menu repeating them all over)
    all of them had the "GAME" in them, probably i guess because "GAME BOY" is a trademark and they could get in real trouble

    keep in mind, this tip is only to identify hacked games\bootlegs
    there are fake copies which you can barely tell the difference between a copy and a fake, if you are looking for example pokemon games, there are really good copies out there, and the only way to know if it's a fake it's looking at the PCB
