Hmm I was pretty sure I had a MSX2 version with an english logo too but after chcking my 1.1gb of MSX collection I found only japanese versions... both rom and disk versions I have are japanese. Though I did find a 'gold' edition of Kings Valley 2 MSX2, anyone knows what that version is all about?

IIRC, however, they consist of only three kanji and one hiragana. It says (IIRC, again) 'Ouke no tani', literally meaning 'Valley of the Royal Family', freely interpretable as 'King's Valley' Smile

'Ouke no tani' actually refers to a location in Egypt which is known in English as 'Valley of the Kings'. It is even listed as such in the better Japanese-English dictionaries.

And "Eru Giiza" is ofcourse "El Gizeh", the site of the great pyramid.

EDIT: I see ricbit already noted "El Giza", but 'Gizeh' is a better spelling Smile

Then why is it rare or is that just a saletrick.... I thought there was only a japanese King's Valley 2 - MSX 2... but this one also has a english translation on the cartridge sticker...

Maybe they had plans to sell the MSX2 version in Europe also. But at that time there was a big black market in holland already and orignal games gave not that ammount of money that it should be Sad IIRC
I have the original japanese MSX 2 version with box and manual and it's the same cartridge as on that ebay photo.

I agree with Serico that the MSX2 version of KV is not that often for sale at ebay, Rklok sell it sometimes.
