Anyone know the original Chinese title of the supervision?

Also whats the deal with the 'Magnum Supervision' that could play some of the more advanced later games such as Journey West: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpaW5BC2u7E

Anyone know what the 'Magnum Supervision" was originally called in Chinese as well?

There was a Taiwanese version called "Taike Boy" (泰可BOY) but I dunno if that was the original or not, it might have been another licensed variant.

The original designers seem to have been based in Hong Kong but Watara (or "Watary" sometimes) and Magnum and Bon Treasure were all ultimately owned by the Malaysian company Magnum Corporation & I think it was probably intended as an export product from the start so maybe it never really had an "original" Chinese name.
(although one thing I think is weird is the back label on the Supervision is almost identical to the one on the Gamate)

Here's something I've never seen before:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/WATARA-TRAVELL-MATE-SUPERVISION-CONSOLE-BOXED-COMPLETE-VERY-RARE-/131695880349

There seems to be not a heck of a lot of information about this specific model, but the games pictured on the box are what really piqued my interest.

Outside of Hash Block(s) having a label I've never seen which has cribbed Momotaro from Momotaro Densetsu/Dentetsu (specifically from the latter)...

It's the only evidence I've seen of Cross High being released on a standalone cartridge... and there's a picture of a game with two moles that seems to be called "Marpol Brother"... which I can't find *ANY* reference to, anywhere!
Looking for (all ok loose, straight up bootlegs are ok to be repros):
-Gamate + Kung-Fu Fighter, Dinosaur Park, Heaven Clash/Quiz Fighter, The Further Adventures of Hannibal the Cat
-NES (not Famicom)/SNES/Genesis/GameBoy series fighting game bootlegs
-Unique TMNT bootlegs
-Jurassic Boy 2 GameBoy Color
-Any fighting games on Game King?
-ZDog console

I used to have one like that, though it had a different box. No idea what the name was, either.

Coincidentally I just watched this video from RetroFuture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAppgdsdxU8 in which the Momotaro version of Hash Block can be seen at 5:08 - the plastic is also lighter than regular Supervision cartridges. So the fact that this surfaced maybe means there's hope for Marpol Brothers existing too.. but presumably if it was released, it was only alongside the very earliest Travellmate consoles, which are super rare in themselves.

I honestly never thought that there was still more to be found for this system! I mean even if Marpol Brother was never actually released, finding something new about the SuperVision is exciting.

Does anybody know if Cross High was actually released on its own like the box shows? I've only seen it in the 2-in-1 before that box....
