If you’ve been keeping up with our Box Art Brawl series, where we pit various game covers from different regions against each other to see which is the prettiest, you’ll likely know that we love ourselves a glorious game cover or two.

Celebrating the very best of box arts available on Nintendo’s own Game Boy system is Game Boy: The Box Art Collection, a new and upcoming read from the dedicated team at Bitmap Books. A follow-up to the beautiful Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection, this new tome has been written by none other than our very own Damien McFerran and has superb artwork from the legendary ex-Rare concept artist Wil Overton. Oh, and Nintendo Life contributor and retro expert Gonçalo Lopes supplied the screenshots.

Take a look at this stunning front cover.

It’s planned to launch this November and pulls together a varied selection of titles which span both western and eastern tastes. It’s been in the works for the last 12 months, and more details – as well as pre-order options – are set to appear in September. We’ll make sure to keep you updated.

Before you go...

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
