Hmm, that is interesting!

Now, I'm wondering why Korea has it's own category because the games are NTSC/J. Shouldn't they be put in the JP category with the region coding next to it like the Canadian / European games? Or does it not matter that much?

Found a game with a listing for [SA] Not sure if it's Saudi Arabia or South America or South Africa or what: I couldn't figure out if it should be added or not, but wanted to mention it here though.

The language on the box is for South America, and it looks like Brasil.

I see we need [HK] for Hong Kong, there's an NES [HK] category in the database.

EDIT: Though I see that you put Hong Kong merged with the general Asian release of AS. Should the NES category be changed then?

Also, in the browse section it has PC [Asia]; it should probably be [AS]

What is the history of those HK released NES games? Were they meant for sale only in Hong Kong? Hong Kong is the typical distribution point for [AS] released games. I believe it was only fairly recently did we know that HK releases of things were meant for general sale in SE Asia. Also, don't forget that Hong Kong was different back in the 80s, they were a part of the UK until 1997.

I could find very little information about Asian-released NES games, but the boxes and cartridges do say "Asian Version." this would indicate to me that it's meant for the general Asian market, and not strictly for Hong Kong. Hong Kong may be the distribution point like you mentioned. In addition, the back of the Kung Fu cart and the manual for Hogan's Alley have both English and Chinese on it.

The question is, is that enough information to make these games actually general Asian releases, and not for only Hong Kong? Here's what I'm thinking:

Either way, since the TLD code sheet we have currently merges HK into AS, then the category should be renamed Nintendo Entertainment System [AS]. If somehow, we were able to find separate releases for only Hong Kong in specific, those games would have [HK] within the AS category.

If I find more information I will update what I think. Mastafafik, you have these games in your collection, do you have any insight into this?

Here are the two games in that category

Hogan's Alley: http://vgcollect.com/item/90468

Making a different post for an separate topic

I see we have a console with the category code [CH]. That should be added to the master list as well.

[CH] Switzerland has been added.

I would be in favor of having NES [HK] changed to NES [AS].

Should we add [IT] for Italy to the list?

Added [IL] Israel.
Games from Israel should be put into [AS] or Asia categories if one is present.
