    Hello,

    Here are some Nintendo press kits I'd like to share, from the Gamecube/GBA era.
    They contain screenshots (sometimes from early builds), high resolution artwork and communications from Nintendo.

    Keep in mind that some of the kits were damaged and files may be corrupted or missing.
    If you find a file with what seems like random letters and symbols, it is probably in Japanese.
    Feel free to contact me if you need explanation or translation on something.

    ----Mario Kart Double Dash!----

    Contains:
    -Characters, objects and courses art
    -Race mode, battle mode and replays screenshots
    -Top down and perspective views of the courses
    -Box and title art
    -Text file explaining what the game is about (French)
    -Text file with the characteristics of the game (French)

    About:
    This kit was very damaged. Most of the files in "première vague" are missing.
    The file "esec fondo pokemon.psd" is a 23MP image and was used to make posters and big prints.

    It's not a script, just an EPS file that was renamed as a .txt for some reason. Change the extension and it opens fine in Illustrator.

    It appears you are right.The originial file was actually a .file but I had to modify it because it contained private information and I saved it as a .txt file inadvertently.

    I guess it is the same image you can find as a .jpg in the same folder, but I would still like to have confirmation as I don't have Illustrator.
