Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers (ウルトラストリートファイターII ザ・ファイナルチャレンジャーズ) | Capcom | 2017 | by Bengus | Nintendo Switch.

To mark the return of Street Fighter II Capcom would turn to box artist Bengus - who had produced the very first series cover art, Fighting Street (Hudson Software, 1988) - for a deliberate throw-back design.

The artist would base the piece on a previous poster that he produced to promote Super Street Fighter II in 1993, combining series hallmarks such as an angled birds eye view, Ryu taking point and a cluttered assemble.  Original propmotion piece.

Underwurlde | Ultimate - Play the Game | 1984 | by Tim Stamper | Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum.

After the functional cover arts throughout Ultimate’s first year (1983), the venerable Saber Wulf at the the beginning of 1984 introduced a provocative and head turning style of art that follow up Underwurlde also adopted.

The change in art direction coincided with the compaines new increased price point that was justified by both the ‘big box’ the cassettes now came in, and the detailed instruction manual. This overal packaging effort was designed to discourage kids from pirating their copy of the game, and for it’s time was an unusual business move that actually worked. The artwork was also used to promote Underwurlde in trade mags.
