Bandai Datach Joint ROM System

 

One of only two third-party units that actually interfaced with the Famicom (the other being the Aladdin Deck Enhancer), which allowed the user to swipe cards included with the various compatible Bandai game cartridges. The unit was bundled with Dragon Ball Z: Gekitō Tenkaichi Budokai, as well as the cards needed for operation. Truly a unique item for its time – reminds me of the e-Reader that Nintendo released for the Game Boy Advance a decade later!

  1. I don’t think the Play it Loud CD counts as “promotional” since it was a for-sale item. You bought it through Nintendo Power and it contained soundtracks from a variety of SNES games.
