Stop And Admire The Original Super Mario Bros. Box Art

The best examples of box art tend to be those with a timeless design. Those you can look at ten, twenty, even thirty years later and say, yup, that still looks amazing. Super Mario Bros. is one such game.

These great pics by Bryan Ochalla remind us that, even with dog-eared corners, that bright yellow background and cartoon art looks as good in 2014 as it did upon release in 1985.

Actually, you know what, I think it looks better.

    Not sure how good it is but the fact it reminds me of being a kid = win for me :)

    Man that thing must be worth some coin. Are original NES (okay Famicom) games skyrocketing yet?

      It is the best selling game of all time. NES and Famicom games are worth more depending on their rarity. You could get a boxed copy of this for next to nothing.

        Well if I ever see a boxed copy of this pop up, I'm totally snagging one. I have a feeling that it'll be worth a fair bit someday. I just got an (unboxed) Japanese copy of FF6, can't go wrong for $10 even if I can't play it

    I'm surprised that people around here remember this Famicom cartridge. I expected everyone to be familiar with the NES design. But yeah, this rocks.

    Anyone know where I can find PDF files for paper-craft replicas of box art? I want a shelf full of old famicon boxes.

    This should already exist on the net.
