Your Wall Is Crying Out For This Amazing Mega Drive Poster

Posted by Damien McFerran

And the creators are interested in doing a SNES one, too

Sega-loving James Newton may have left us, but we still have a lot of time for the company that gave the world Sonic the Hedgehog.

We therefore heartily approve of this bespoke, limited edition Mega Drive poster, produced by MegaDrive.me and designed by Dan Clarke.

Limited to just 100 copies, the poster itself uses the iconic Japanese logo for Sega's 16-bit console - which was renamed Genesis when it launched in North America.

Even better news for Nintendo fans is that the team are seriously considering creating a similar poster for the SNES, as Clarke himself is apparently a true Nintendo fan boy.

Be sure to drop him a line on Twitter if you want that to happen. In the meantime, here's a video of how these amazing posters were made, accompanied by the amazing soundtrack to Streets of Rage:

SNES was my baby back then....but looking back Sega is really cool too....it was known as the Genesis over here though instead of the Mega Drive.

Ummm... it's a poster... With a logo... And most likely not licensed. Anyone can grab a logo and do the most basic of photoshopping to produce this, take it to a printshop and have 1000 made up. I've made posters for my band that are 1,000 times more intricate. This makes Nintendolife news?! Come on guys!

That video didn't really tell how they were made. It just kind of said "Hey,we got some duct tape, took a big piece of paper, painted it blue, did some other stuff, and somehow we got this thing. Don't even ask where we got the Mega Drive logo." Tell me what I'm missing, and I might make an edit.

^ How can you say that? The article doesn't seem to sound like a paid advertisement. It's like beautiful essay, so sincere. :-)
