Namco Star Wars Anime Images

Back in 1987 Namco made a very strange and very unforgiving Star Wars game for the Nintendo Famicom. (NES.) The game never left the country. It's certainly a very strange and creative take on the series. Due to all the liberties it took, I actually found the game very interesting. Anyway I am not doing this post to do a review, but to show off the really neat instruction manual. It features some very nice anime takes on the characters. Art that predates the Star Wars Mangas by over a decade!

The choice of so many original bad guy sprites is very strange. At this point all three films had come out and were very well known. There were so many creatures to choose from, but still the game makers put in mostly their own monsters.
