The Super Famicom cart from Stone Age Gamer is universal.

From watching videos on YouTube, it looks like the ones Stone Age Gamer shipped in 2012 were universal but they aren't now. :(

I emailed to double check and they don't sell universal carts now.

Im planning to get a Super NT when the Famicom style comes back.

Moreover, I currently have both a Japanese SFC and an American SNES but I want to use in both without modifying and I want to be able to use on any other system. It just seems to me like the carts should be universal.

I'm surprised I haven't found anyone selling cart shells.

Go have a look at Retrogate. They sell sd2snes multiregion shells.

The LEDs are very bright and if your SNES is in a low-light area you can easily see the lights through the universal shell without the need of light pipes. 





Since the lights are nice but not necessary unless for troubleshooting purposes, I actually prefer it this way.
