Maxivision 15-in-1 is an NES multicart made by American Video Entertainment and published by them and HES. It was released in North America and Australia in 1992 and features 15 unlicensed games by various game companies.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Two versions of this multicart were released, with the latter using a different title screen and replacing Sachen's games with two others (Blackjack and Deathrace) because AVE's contract with Sachen did not allow them to include their games on multicarts. Both versions were released in America and Australia, but the first version is more common in America and the second is more common in Australia.
