    Do you count things like Diamond Trust of London? A homebrew/commercial release unsanctioned by Nintendo.

    Anyway not that I am aware of but most of the games I want would not be cloned and sold.

    Does a bootleg of a flashcard count?

    Well, here's my bootleg (I think) R4 flash card:
    photo_2021-04-16_23-16-46.jpg photo_2021-04-16_23-16-51.jpg
    Damaged to the point that it doesn't even have the original label anymore. I got it used from someone years ago for almost nothing.
    Still works just fine for loading homebrew games and apps though, and in some ways it even does that better than some of the more expensive flashcards.

    I'm waiting for an English Ni no Kuni. I understand the cost of the ROM chip may be too high to be profitable compared to other games, but Mother 3 was probably considered too large back in the day.

    Blood of Bahamut was easy enough to find. I finally found Rockman EXE Operate Shooting Star.

    not a bootleg ds game, but I think I have a bootleg switch game. it's Poi. it says USA on it. whenever I tried to redeem coins, it said that my account was the wrong region. I also noticed it created a separate save and occupied a separate tile on the switch after I bought the game on the eshop. I bought my entire retail collection on the eshop, and every game but this one used the same tile and save.

    btw, the game was sealed. I asked the seller about it, and he claimed he bought it in the US.

    No, but a couple of my family members have or have had one of those bootleg "100in1" carts that are just a flashcart preloaded with games. And not the good ones either, the good ones tend to be large in size so they stuff them full of small sized roms to fit as many as possible on there.
    There are no bootleg Switch games. Are you sure your account is USA?
    Edit: I found 010086F0064CE000 and 01005EC0039E4000. Both of these claim to be Poi: Explorer Edition USA. One is an XCI and the other is a NSP. I guess they used different TIDs for cart and eShop for whatever reason. Interestingly, there is no update available for the retail TID, only the eShop one. Was it released on eShop first and cart later? Possibly the cart has the update built in and that is why they changed the TID, to avoid conflicts.
    Edit: Hmm, no. They were released simultaneously. I assume the cart has the update built in if it's not available separately, but it's weird they chose to do it that way when the carts would have had to be manufactured in advance, so if the update is already on the cart, it would've been ready long before the eShop release.
