This last museum post of the day is a brochure/poster for the Capcom Craze Club and a listing of Capcom games available for Nintendo systems in 1992. From the goofiness of the fanny pack to the cheesiness of the kids striking poses, I would guess that Nintendo got their child-friendly tentacles deep into Capcom USA’s marketing department. Now that I think about it, perhaps this is the reason that Capcom chose to use such ugly art for the American release of Street Fighter II.
I don’t recall buying any Capcom games other than Street Fighter II, which means that this brochure probably came with that game. The code CAP-SNS-US seems to suggest this as well. Another interesting tidbit is that the poster was printed in Japan. Back then, games were still being manufactured in Japan so it makes sense from a logistics standpoint that the printed matter would be made in the same location as the cartridge. Looking at my PS3 and PS4 games now, I see that they are “manufactured and printed” in the USA.
As always, I hope you enjoy this final (and goofy!) museum post of the day.
