Nintendo Entertainment Center

This entertainment center is a copy of the ‘World of Nintendo’ display case that used to reside in video game stores back in the 90’s, minus the sliding glass on the front. It’s the ideal size for a flat panel display and some game consoles.

It features an illuminated marquee, several LED light bars, and some drawers to store controllers and accessories. There is still some glass flanking the sides of the case.

Thought it would be fun if this turned into a store display case! It can show off a bunch of NES game covers when the TV is not in use:

This is made possible by having the game covers slide into the back of the entertainment unit, much like a bread box cover. The games slide over the TV and into the back:

I was going to do something similar for the lower shelves (but with game console boxes), however I decided against it because the boxes would be in the way of the wires leading from the consoles to the TV.

If you’re worried about damaging the game covers, replicas can be used. I went with NES here, but any Nintendo system could be used, they all look great.
