Replacement Game Manuals Being Sold on Nintendo WebsiteJon Ledford |
Because printed game manuals are starting to be phased out completely, Nintendo has decided to start selling reprints of game manuals from across its illustrious history.
Destructoid has noticed that Nintendo started adding replacement game manuals to its online store. These games span the gaming company's long history. Expect to see manuals from all sorts of Nintendo consoles, such as the NES, SNES, GameCube, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance and more. Unfortunately, the Virtual Boy library does not have any of its game manuals for sale (then again, if you have still been playing the red headset of doom since its release, you probably don't read much anyway).
Some of the games included on this list just do not make sense -- why have the manual for Mario Party 2 but not the first? Wouldn't game collectors be more interested in the manual for the original title? Starcraft 64's manual is another strange, standout manual on the list. Nevertheless, both collectors and niche fans can find salvation in finding Nintendo-made reprints of game manuals for the likes of Tetris, Metroid, Super Mario Kart and the largest gem of them all, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
