My Famicase Exhibition ’09

Thursday, May 7th, 2009





Has it really been so long? Japanese hipster/retro culture store Meteor has unveiled this year’s My Famicase exhibition, an arena for 58 Japanese designers and artists to create fictional NES game labels, adhered to cartridges just like the real thing.

Sadly, even by Japanese standards most of these games are too bizarre to coexist peacefully in our world, and it is with a heavy heart that I’ve resigned myself to the fact I will never get to play Look at the Rainbow, Loveletter or the lengthily-titled Because it is Strong, it is Stout, it is Courageous, and it is Popular. Kauji in Childhood in my lifetime.
