Well the man never rests, and some of his latest work includes modern redesigns of the jewel case art for some classic PS1 games. The halls of great video game box art are filled with some really beautiful gems, but as of late it feels increasingly like a lost art. Does your game have a grizzly dude with weapon looking equally sad and pissed off about something? Fantastic! Ship it, bank it, and consider it a job well done.

So in case you needed reminding of just how beautiful and unique box art can be, look no further than Nicholas’ latest collection of sophisticated retro imaginings.

Sorry, but the original Wipeout cover is already design perfection.
