As well as the benefits of faster, smoother, full-screen gameplay, Japanese Super Famicom cartridges came in beautiful portrait-shaped boxes, rather than the landscape packaging sold in Europe and North America. The stylish, intricate Japanese designs were almost always superior to those afforded the Western releases.
As a celebration of this unique artwork, Bitmap Books is proud to present Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection – a compilation of Japanese game packaging images, professionally shot and presented as a glorious hardback edition. The book features around 250 titles, including many rare examples and some that have never before been documented in print. Sourced from the archives of renowned collector Stuart Brett (a.k.a. Super Famicom Guy), each box is beautifully presented, life-size, with a critique of the artwork, plus interviews with other collectors, talking about their love of the format.
Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection comes in a square format book, bound in charcoal grey with a gold foil block logo and lithographically printed to the highest standards. Long-time games journalist Steve Jarratt, launch editor of Edge and Nintendo magazine Total!, has overseen the text and also written the foreword.
Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection is an unmissable treat for anyone who had a passion for Nintendo’s 16-bit games console, and who came to embrace the distinctive Japanese artwork adorning these iconic games.
