There was something sort of interesting about NES box art. Because the graphics for Nintendo games were, relatively speaking, short of breathtaking, the box art would have to be that much more appealing. Sometimes the box art would looks completely different than the game’s graphics (like for Mega Man) and other times, would take the overall visual themes of the game and turn them into a pretty cool piece of artwork (like for Contra).
Box art for games today is a bit more refined, but what if the box art was presented in the retro style of an NES game? Some creative people have created some box art for modern games, and the result is pretty cool. Gamespy had shown a bunch of these creations in the past, so I tried my best to find examples separate from those. Enjoy the gallery after the jump.
