Need help finding old artwork for old famicom game..
« on: August 12, 2020, 01:15:13 am »
Hi everyone, was trying to see if anyone knows any site, or has old pic's or can draw ect. For an old famicom game called Cobra Mission. I am porting it my self and cant find any ad or artwork or box art for it. I did find a small pic of the cart but its beat up and not a big enough size. Its just a personal project i am doing, trying to make the label for the nes port.Here is the only pic i could find.

I hope this is close to what you're looking for.

I also found these (not sure if they're directly related or not):

Usually when I need a boxart or an artwork for an old game I just visit https://www.mobygames.com/. They're often quite reliable for that kind of stuff, especially when it comes to old pc games.

But this time I didn't find much there. Surprisingly gamefaqs helped: 

Front Boxart US: https://gamefaqs1.cbsistatic.com/box/4/6/1/49461_front.jpg

Back Boxart US: https://gamefaqs1.cbsistatic.com/box/4/6/1/49461_back.jpg

Front Boxart AU (Autralia?): https://gamefaqs1.cbsistatic.com/box/4/6/2/49462_front.jpg

For the cartrige this is (sadly) the best I could find (US Cart). I uploaded the screenshot (jpeg) myself because the link couldn't be shared directly for some reason:

note: also while searching I noticed "Mission Cobra" (NES) has nothing to do with "Cobra Mission", the latter being a PC game with scantily clad ladies. ^^

The 'Mission Cobra' boxarts others have linked is a different game.

'Cobra Mission' that is mentioned in OP is a Taiwanese developed game. NTDec/Asder were notorious for pirate and unlicensed famicom games, so wouldn't suprise me if there wasn't even a box for it

Yeah the game is cobra mission very rare Asder game, there was a box with the famicom game because it was done by an real artist, but i could not find the full art or even scans of the box. But it does exist. I wish i could find old jap ad's of it in like a magazine or somthing at least. Thanks guys by the way for helping. Its just one of these old nes games i gota complete lol.

Thanks for the clarification and sorry for the mistake. Now I understand:

"Mission Cobra" is a vertical shoot'em up while "Cobra Mission" by ASDER is a Shooting game.

The following screenshot for the cartridge is in good quality:

That looks good, thanks. Now if i could find the box art i might be able to crop it into a nes lable. That lable on the famicom is in great shape but sadly its crooked to where i cant resize the art.. ahh this is hard lol

I tried searching for artwork from the game too, and the best I was able to find was the same cartridge pic but darker and a bit higher res. I tried cleaning things up and separating some elements if that helps.






For the main image I tried to fill in where the logo was covering it, and I extended it a little bit vertically. Of course that means I had to make stuff up, so who knows how accurate it is.
