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.

Kauji in Childhood in my lifetime.
