Cover Sketch by Thor Thorvaldson

Wednesday, 9 August 2017

Hi everyone!

Thor Thorvaldson, who you may remember as the cover artist for our 200 Best Video Games of All Time and Sega Arcade Classics Vol. 2 book, has prepared a cover sketch for the Japanese Video Game Obscurities book, shown below:


See how many characters you can name!

Disclaimer though: I'm still waffling on whether to include Wonder Project J or its N64 sequel, so that one might change! I also requested the presence of Madison and Crystal (or Mania and Maria, if you prefer their Japanese names) from Battlemania Daiginjou.

hmm...would you consider not putting a generic anime character at the center of attention? a book about japanese video game obscurities has so much more potential to stand out from the croud.
