We are very excited to announce that we will be publishing the excellent Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection.

This compilation of Japanese Super Famicom game packaging is 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 (aka Super Famicom Guy), each box is beautifully presented life size, with a critique of the artwork, plus interviews with other collectors, explaining their love of the format.

Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection will come in a square format book, bound in charcoal grey wibalin 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!, will oversee the text and also write 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.

Due for publication in early 2016. Keep checking back for updates and sign up to our newsletter to stay up to date.

It looks stunning, and at this rate most of my retro budget will be on books lol.
