In anticipation of March 22nd's WiiWare release of "Cave Story," Nintendo sent over some awesome artwork from indie artist Cole Harrington, which depicts the game's hero kicking the ass of a beastie.
Along with the package was a very nice letter from the game's original creator, Daisuke Amaya, talking about the work he put into "Cave Story" and how excited he is to see its release on WiiWare.
I think it's a sign the games industry may be growing up a bit when swag goes from illegal weapons to classy artwork. Or wait, Nintendo sent me a plastic fish a few weeks ago. Yeah, we're still all kids at heart.
Anyway, here's super high rez shot of Cole's work, since my iPhone camera really doesn't do it justice.
