Did you guys ever see a real copy of CV3 at a store back then? I bought NES games up to their final years on the shelves and never did.
For me personally it's tough to recall what NES titles I did and didn't see on the store shelves back then. I know I got my copy of CV3 used from Funcoland, circa mid-90s. CV2 was the only one in the CV NES trilogy that I had as a retail purchase.
I would imagine that I would've seen it though. It is considered a pretty common game, rarity-wise.
