It is one of the rarest PC enigine CD games, what should explain it's $2000 price. You will need a Japanese credit card to open a yahoo! jp auction account btw (you werent thinking of bidding on it were you?)

Thanks for the link, Thibaut. To clear up a bit of confusion: -Any Credit Card will work for Yahoo Japan -99% of the sellers won't ship abroad... despite what people think, this is a lot like Ebay. -There are companies that will bid/ship for you, for a pretty high price. You could "rent" a Japanese mailbox... but the price is very high. It's about $1000 a year. You'd need about 4 people to split the cost to make it worth it. They charge an extra $8 US for evrything they forward to you as well. :(

You can register fairly easy but the international shipping and bank transfers are the 2 big problems. I would save Yahoo auctions for stuff that you can't get off of Ebay like FM Town Marty stuff. For the most part the other stuff isn't worth the hassle.
