Unfortunately, there wasn't an NES-style cardboard game box included with this awesome package.
As someone who writes about games for a living, developers and publishers send me a lot of game-related swag to get me to pay attention to some title. The examples range from the interesting to the obscene (remind me to tell you about the Planetside 2 diaper sometime). But at this point in my career, these freebies barely faze me anymore. Usually, I quickly put them aside in the corner to await the Child's Play charity swag giveaway we run every year.
The package I got from Capcom this week grabbed my attention though. Packaged inside a decently cool metal lunchbox was a golden NES cartridge, both of which were emblazoned with the official art from the upcoming DuckTales Remastered. Amidst some shredded dollar bills in the box was a Certificate of Authenticity identifying it as one of only 150 copies. There were a few other cute, retro-inspired touches: a coupon for "green cheese of longevity," a flier advertising "upcoming" Capcom games like Mega Man 3, and a fake ad for a music album packed with duck-themed puns.
I heard Capcom PR did something similar when Mega Man 9 came out, sending members of the press a non-functional cartridge shell in an authentic box. So at first I figured that this cartridge was similarly a stylish art piece in the style of the NES carts of old. When I looked on the underside of the cartridge though, I noticed a set of surprisingly real looking contacts protruding out.
