Is my copy of Shadow Dragon legit?

Recommended Posts

Hey all .. been a while since I posted here, but figured this would be the best place to get an answer to my question. 

I purchased a copy of FE Shadow Dragon for the DS. I've been hunting for this game for a while now and finally snagged one. The game is CIB, but I'm suspicious of the cart because eBay is plagued with knockoffs for this game (some people sell the cart only and have "more than 20 in stock"). 

Every insert is included, from the manual (stapled binding), FE: Radiant Dawn insert, a "Join Nintendo Club" insert and DS Health and Precaution manual. These look very legit to me. 

Now the cart ... I'm having a very difficult time finding accurate information on how to spot a knock off. Some of my findings contradict each other. 

The cart has the official Nintendo seal. The back says YFEENOJOO ... some copies I have seen have the number 28. Mine ends in OO. 

I got it on eBay and I paid more than $35 but less than $50. It was an auction. 

Does anyone have insight? Pics below. D3C7DE73-C2F6-4DA1-B2D3-AAE78130060E_zpsD4AF0D8C-167C-4F8E-8C4D-4BB64E15A780_zps64C562BF-D3C5-4953-8749-82D103F592B8_zps

Comparing it with my own FE11 cart, seems like it's legit to me.

Most fake DS carts would run on a DS but not on a 3DS (or sometimes not even on a DSi) so if you can test it on a 3DS and works, then it's very likely a legit cart.

Cool. Yes, it runs on the 3DS. Do the numbers on the back of mine match yours? 

And thanks. I'm sure someone wouldn't go through all this length to pass off a phony cart, considering it's CIB and all.

No. But the only difference is that the last digit is 8 rather than 0. However from my experience, this number in the back can vary (apparently it has to do with the batch of the game).

General rule of thumb is that the first four letters of the code in the back have to match the four middle letters of the code in the front .
