It feels like we are currently being spoiled with all these awesome retrogaming books that are around at the moment.
 
As I've mentioned before, there are tons of great examples of these out there and each one gets me more and more excited to own it!
The latest one to catch my eye is called…….
 
Super Famicom : The Box Art Collection
 
You Excited? 
 
If You're Not Excited You Better Check Your Pulse!
 
A Celebration 
This book is a celebration of the splendid Famicom Box Art which is far superior to the PAL and US versions of the SNES box art.
 
It has 250 game boxes beautifully photographed to show off the vibrant art work that accompanies each title.
 
The thing with the Famicom is that it was superior to the Western SNES in every way possible it had full screen with no borders, it ran faster, it got the games quicker, it looked better and even the box for the machine was mega smart. If you were serious about SNES you owned a Super Famicom.
 
This book encapsulates the beauty of the Super Famicom and I for one can't wait to own this beauty.
 
Bitmap Books are once again leading the charge with quality retr ogaming books and are adding this marvel to its list of awesome publications…..
