Experienced shoppers buy their holiday gifts early, so if you’re looking for a unique and memorable gift for an old school gamer, you better get one of Retrozone’s Xmas cartridges. These are original cartridges for the NES and SNES (or Famicom and Super Famicom, if you want to be OG) with Christmas-themed games. Best of all, they have “colorful blinky lights” built-in!

The 8-bit NES Xmas cartridge contains a game called Fireplace Bash, a 4-player game where the objective is to bash everyone else’s fireplaces. Think Battle City but simpler.

The 16-bit SNES Xmas cartridge on the other hand has a game called Christmas Craze, which seems like a platformer.

The lights in both cartridges change depending on what’s happening in the games, but they’ll happily blink and shine for you even if you don’t play the games. You’ll still have to plug them in to their respective consoles though. Colorful blinky lights need power.

You can order the Xmas cartridges from Retrozone for $39 (USD) each. You can also have text displayed in the games and printed on an accompanying card for an additional $6. Not only are these unique yet affordable gifts, GameSniped says these are quickly becoming collector’s items, so buy them NAO.
