Japan’s finest hipster retro/game culture store Meteor has announced via its blog that its Famicase art exhibit will be returning to the shop from May 2nd through the 31st.
What’s Famicase? A curated selection of original 8-bit Nintendo cartridges given new labels by the local finest design houses and illustrators, each imagining games never created.
Why should we care when it’s likely that the great majority of us won’t be able to make it in to see the show? Because if this year comes even half as close to the highlights of their 2008 show (my three favorites below), we’re in for a visual treat, regardless.
