If New Video Games Went Back in Time

Ever wondered what modern classic video games would look like if they were just classics? Wonder no more

Kotaku has dug up this great website that has created some awesome box shots of new video games in the classic Nintendo Entertainment System style. If Mario Kart had ever made an appearance on the NES we're sure the box would have looked something like this. They are pretty impressive covers.

Last year, the -Minus World put its talents to good use on Atari Modern Classics, de-making box art for BioShock, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Portal in the Atari 2600 style. Ready for the sequel?

The NES Modern Classics are just as snazzy, providing us with re-imagined box art for games like Dead Space, Gears of War 2 and Animal Crossing: City Folk—among others—from an alternate universe where we never progressed beyond the Nintendo Entertainment System. A scary thought, but it makes for good box art parody.

We might venture a guess that some of the new "modern classics"—say the NES versions of Killzone 2 and Wii Sports—come with a side of commentary, free of charge.

Totally retro! I haven't seen box art like than for too long, what with those sexy looking block figures and boxy graphics. Who could resist?
