Kirby Super Star - Wata 8.5 - 9.4 Box [For Display Only] SNES Nintendo 1996


About Kirby’s Super Star

Aside from being an excellent video game Kirby’s Super Star also has the distinction of being one of the last games ever released for the Super Nintendo. Three months after the game's debut, the Nintendo 64 launched to worldwide acclaim and Nintendo began to sunset the venerable Super Nintendo. But this game is not to be overlooked! Kirby’s Super Star is regarded as one of the best SNES games of all time (IGN, Complex) and has been rereleased on the Wii, Wii U, and Switch.

With Kirby entrenched firmly alongside Mario, Link, and Samus as one of Nintendo’s most celebrated characters, Kirby titles across all platforms are always in demand. Thanks to social media trends and memes, Kirby has enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years with younger generations. Kirby titles fit into a wide range of collections and being a core staple of Nintendo’s brands ensures that the Kirby franchise is likely to stay relevant for years to come.


About For Display Only Boxes

Printed and manufactured for display and marketing purposes, For Display Only (FDO) boxes for the Super Nintendo are an affordable way to own popular WATA graded titles. FDO boxes were likely used for a number of purposes in the mid to late 1990’s including in-store kiosk displays and on shelves at certain rental stores and retailers.

Consisting of only a box with a special “For Display Only” marking on the box front, with no inner components such as a cartridge or manual, FDO boxes are an interesting and unusual way to collect some of your favorite Super Nintendo titles at a fraction of the price of acquiring a traditional sealed copy. About twenty-five different SNES titles are known to have FDO boxes produced alongside traditional copies but more titles having this box variant may eventually be discovered. This makes for a unique and interesting way to affordably collect some of the best Super Nintendo titles.
