Indeed, I too like the style, very nice. Though I could swear that the Japanese box looked the sameSmilie, can't remember...

edit: Wait, nevermindSmilie. Though the Japanese one looked good too.

!:shock:!

I am surprised, I would have thought it would be exactly the same as the japanese one, but no this is better I reckon, it's distinct and the japanese one harked of WW perhaps a little too much.{LS]

Outta interest what do people prefer?-

I can't decide which of the two I like better - both are great in my opinion. I'm slightly leaning toward the Japanese one as I like the nice blue and the scenery, but I wouldn't be disappointed to get the other one either.

It would seem the above art is only for the U.S, we in europe will be getting the bluey japanese box-

Most european hardcore Zelda fans will be importing the game from the U.S as I will, but this does not mean I will not get the european box also as I have always intended on getting two copies for multiplayer Smilie.{LS]

Isn't that large G for the Australian market? Anyway, I much prefer the Japanese box as the new logo sits better against the blue ocean background.

Whoa.


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

Even though Oz is a Pal territory they are also getting the U.S box, it would seem. I like both, but if I had to choose based purely on aesthetics I would choose the bluey kind because it's nice and bright.{LS]

This one is a lot better than the Japanese version, the Jap one looks tacky.

Indeed it is. The G stands for "General Audiences."

Actually we usually get the PAL boxarts. I don't recall ever having an American boxart.

IMO, both boxarts are pretty good. I don't mind which we get.

I like the PAL one(or is it that the box for the whole western market?) the way it's meant too look like a old map with the markings and such on it.

That the U.S and Australia one.{LS]

Well chances you guys will probably get the same one then. Otherwise that's odd that we get the US cover.

That's not the PAL Boxart!

If you go to the Phantom Hourglass page on Nintendo UK. It shows the Japanese Boxart as the PAL Boxart. Even has the 7+ in the corner.

Here is the URL: Link.

mod edit: just fixing page stretch

Yeah I know you guys normally get the same but on the evidence of that pic you may get the same art as the U.S?.{LS]

I like the title, with the hourglass icon. Looks great. The rest of it is just average.

Oh ok. That's cool.

Yeah I liked that too, the weathered look always goes well with me.

Smilie That looks awesome! seriously the Japanese one looks nice, but that Australian one just looks incredible.

I'd much rather have the Australian boxart, I hope Europe gets the same one.

i think that link looks scary its his eyes they are well huge but anyways it looks like a nice box and stuff but im not buying it becuase wind waker cel shaded link scares me Smilie why did nintendo make his eyes even bigger Smilie

My ONM award I'm so proud

Sweet I like it a lot. So this is the one I'd get since I'm in the US? I definitely prefer this over the blue (even though that one's quite nice). The whole map look is very cool.
