Stay on target…

Merchandising products can be a great source of Nintendo-related artwork. I believe this one comes from Toys R Us.

While at it, why not checking out my own mock-up of Super Scope packaging?

Update: New Archives section added – Neo Geo Pocket Color

Hi there, Title is self-explanatory. But please, don’t you get overexcited. It’s just one game. For now that is. I don’t own a NGPC & this scan was submitted by a friend of mine.

Here’s another beautiful piece of original artwork from Kickle Cubicle by IREM corporation. You don’t get to see this kind of artwork too often. Who uses airbrushes anymore? Well, I’d love to see more.

Update: Added new scans to NES Section

Nintendo NES

Added some scans to my NES section. They’re not the highest quality I usually expect but decided to upload them anyway since I don’t have any of them in my game collection:

  • All-Pro Basketball
  • Castle of Dragon
  • Championship Bowling
  • Countdown Sesame Street
  • Monster Truck Rally
  • National Football League NFL
  • Rad Racer II
  • Rocket Ranger
  • Tag Team Wrestling
  • Total Recall

As a headlining image, I decided to post Rad Racer’s cover. I love old box art because back then imagination could spur not just covers but art pieces of entirely of their own. No computer programs!

This one is by far one of the most beautiful covers for an NES game. Too bad I don’t know the name of the artist. I’d love to get in touch with them and ask few questions about the design process and what had influenced them. What was it like making covers back then?

This image is just so retro & nostalgic at the same time!

Remember, I’m always looking for contributors so please contact me if you have some scans to donate.

Nintendo PlayStation CD-ROM has been found!

You should know it by now. The entire gaming world is abuzz as history is in the making. Some people think it’s fake, but I’m keeping my hopes up! If you want to be part of history or an elaborate hoax you should read this, this and watch this:

Meanwhile, I’m gonna go & get my diaper changed! Yes, I’m shitting my pants, that’s how excited I am right now!

Poster: Super Mario Bros The Movie

Shitty movie with a great poster. Nuff said. I’ve done my magic.
