I found out that the music is from Mega Man 9...apparently in some shop that there is in that game.
A fellow artist and I had a long discussion on the early Mega Man cover art recently, and his reasoning for it was that the artwork reflected what they thought would be popular and appeal to the region that it was being released in. So as one might think, the U.S. of course got the muscled/fat gun toting meat head that still infatuates our culture but could also be seen to exemplify typical American ideals, especially to someone who might not entirely have been given all of the details they needed to create cover art. One can see easily without proper research how one can create art based of their own particular biases and or ignorances. Notice how the European and Original Japanese versions of the cover art actually looked liked it was supposed to. Interesting theory indeed.
As an artist studying illustration for quite some time now, the artwork was just plain bad. Even for it's time and for a rush job there really wasn't any excuse to release this mess other than to start producing the game. However, after such a period without that amateur cover art, it's no wonder why it's made a bit of a comeback. My friend and I are even considering making covers of our own in our own styles, just for the hell of it.
See above comment.
They'll be new ones. There are plenty of episodes out there now to check out.
This was my first episode. So if things weren't completely discussed... well, that's why. I didn't know what the nature of the show was going to be at that point. It's much more in depth now and academic in it's execution.
You didn't even explain the story behind this cover art, all you did was complain about it. When it was being localized, Capcom had one of their artists literally draw a cover within a few hours so he just threw something together without knowing anything about the game itself. Thus, we have this. This was never the art in Japan, nor did they make it for us, we brought this abomination upon ourselves.
THIS IS (not) YOUR DESTINY!
Ice Man's stage had those palm trees seen on the cover, though they were frozen. The red grid was seen on the boxes of the early NES Capcom titles like Section Z, Ghosts 'n Goblins, and I think a few more.
By the way, what game is the theme that starts playing at 0:56 from? I know it must be from an NES game I either don't have or haven't opened yet.
I'm happy this is still around.
I wonder if there will ever be a new CAF. Is all the Cover Art Fails seen, is there nothing new? I was just wonder, never seen this for a long while.
