You know The Great Gatsby as F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel about the perils of American excess, but did you know it was also an unreleased Nintendo game? Apparently, Nintendo’s Great Gatsby was translated from a Japanese game in 1990, but never released in America.
Now, someone who lucked into buying the cartridge at a garage sale has put a playable copy online. You control Gatsby’s friend and rival Nick Carraway as you take on butlers, flappers and other ’20s-style enemies by throwing his your hat at them. Power up by grabbing a golden bowler, and restore your health with a martini!
Check out the game here. It’s a truly weird piece of lost video game history, Old Sport!
