I am a huge fan of Japanese graphic design. I am an even bigger fan of Japanese graphic design when it applies to retro video games. That being said, the inserts that came with the Famicom Disk System are a goldmine of late 80’s Japanese quirkiness. The instruction manual is a strange comic book that seems to indicate that your FDS Disks will sweat if they get to hot, and that Japanese children all have cat tails and can fly.
Having all this weird stuff and nobody to laugh at it with sucks, so on the advice of a member of FamicomWorld.com, today I started to create high quality digital versions to share with all my fellow Nintendo enthusiasts (nerds). The first two are below. More will follow in the days to come. All further scan updates will be placed under the category FDS Scans here on the blog.
Take note that these files are high print quality PDFs or high resolution TIFFs and that they can be between 10 and 20 MB each. Stay tuned for more.
