Real-world information

Promotional flyer for the Disk Writer

Disk Writers were retail-store kiosks in Japan that allowed customers to purchase Famicom Disk System games and write them to their own Disk Card for ¥500, cheaper than the price of a standard retail Disk System game. Games were sold through Disk Writers about one to two months after their standard retail releases, and some games, such as Clu Clu Land: Welcome to New CluClu Land, were exclusively released via the Disk Writer.
