Nintendo artwork to Celebrate NES Birthday

Posted by TurtleGirl On October - 19 - 2010

Yesterday the NES celebrated it’s 25 birthday and to commemorate this audacious anniversary, Bill Murdon from Flickr has created this stunning piece of Nintendo artwork. That’s Nintendo of America founder Minoru Arakawa in the middle.

Released on October 18, 1985, the device gave birth to Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and several other franchises that still live on today. When the NES hit store shelves in New York City a quarter of a century ago, the future of gaming was decidedly in doubt. Some believed the industry was on its last leg, and few retailers were willing to take the kind of financial risks they once did on games. How times have changed.
