For roller derby fanatics, it's been a long 20 years since Jaleco's skatefighting sim War on Wheels was first revealed for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Its eventual cancellation was a painful blow, and lesser skate games like Konami's Rollergames and Hi-Tech Expressions' Rollerblade Racer did little to mend the roller derby-shaped hole in the hearts of NES fans worldwide.

This week, at long last, War on Wheels has been released as a limited run of reproduction cartridges at The NES Dump.

Though War on Wheels never saw an official release anywhere in the world, The NES Dump assures that the reproduced prototype is complete and playable from beginning to end. Worth noting is that the game is developed by Sculptured Software, who also created Day Dreamin' Davey, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and T&C Surf Designs: Thrilla's Surfari on the NES. Sculptured is perhaps better known for its Super Nintendo catalog, which includes titles like Bart's Nightmare, the Super Star Wars series, and the diabetes awareness game Captain Novolin.

The NES Dump's newly minted version of War on Wheels also includes a numbered cardboard box featuring the game's preproduction cover art and a 10-page instruction manual. A video showing off an exhibition match between the "Atlanta Arsenic" and the "L.A. Illegals" (what the) can be seen below.
