Nintendo Game & Watch 2D Boxes

View File

This pack contains 2D Box Art for all 60 of the "Nintendo Game & Watch" Titles (56 are currently emulated in MAME) with 98% of them made from original hi-res box scans and / or photos. When trying to import the Nintendo Game & Watch platform I realised that many of the exisiting but still very cool scans or images of the original boxes were missing or needed some love, so I decided to create my own set of box art from scratch for both 2D and 3D versions.

Some of the original boxes and box scans are understandably in pretty rough shape after four decades, so I've cleaned them up a substantial amount but there are still some imperfections which I left there to preserve the original box as much as possible. So expect some folds, creases, tears, sticky tape residue and smudges but I think it gives them all a bit of character :) I'll update if I can source some really good quality scans of less battered cartons.

When I started this I probably didn't realise there was so many different sized boxes used depending on the game or series so I've done my best to represent these as authentically as possible whilst keeping a consistent width and reasonable file size. Files are currently named as per MAME 0.231 (with a few guesses for future titles) 

Hopefully you like them :)

RELATED ARTWORK

WANTED

  • Any hi resolution scans (300dpi or better preferred) or very large photos of the original "Crystal Screen Series" boxes. Ideally I need the whole box, or at least front and sides which are captured directly front on. i.e. not photos from angles. I can fix perspective to a small degree and the bigger the better. There are "re-created boxes out there". Would love to find some original box scans for these if at all possible. 

MISSING BOXES & VARIANTS

  • This set only includes Nintendo Game & Watch titles and not other handhelds that are often packaged up as Game & Watch such as Mattel, V-Tech and other non Nintendo games (often contained in the very impressive MADrigal simulation set!)  I might get around to those at some point as there is a lot of lovefor them, but finding complete high resolution original artwork scans and photos is not easy! (Especially side box art!). There are also country variations, box variant so we'll see how we go if the demand is there :)
