Obscure 8-bit console from the 80s with never before seen Mario games!

Has anyone every heard or played the NEC PC-8801? I started playing it awhile back and I gotta say, it's pretty dang awesome. There were 3 Mario games that never made their way out of Japan (although 1 of them was rightfully so). The other 2 were great, though.

I made a top 10 games list for that system which includes those mario games: [ Show youtube player ]
Check it out and play some games if you like classic 8-bit action.

Make a bid for the Ark Royal, seeing as they're not quite sure what to do with it now that it's out of service. They're talking about making it a museum, so you'd just insist you're planning on using it for that if they'll just knock down the price for you.

Very interesting mashine. The early games feel and sound like advanced game and watsh games?
Great sfx and music in some games titles of your video.
The 3d Mazeefeect in WIBARM is very impressive.

Would be nice to have a gamebase for this mashine?
