Capcom in Okami Box Art Cock-up

By Jorge Ba-oh 19.04.2008 14

The US box for the recently released Okami has an interesting mistake on the cover.

Here's an interesting one for the weekend. According to reports of those who have Okami, the game's cover art has an IGN watermark left over from presumably a lift-from-the-internet-for-your-own-game design team.

Unlike many media outlets that watermark their images to prevent others using their material, owners of the game have confirmed the stamp still present on the box.

Underhanded advertising or an amusing mistake from the box-art team?

Haha, I think that instead on an actual mistake, Capcom was a little p***ed off with the Wii game scoring lower than the PS2 version on the IGN review, so decided to have Ammy maul IGN. My theory anyway...

Smilie That's just lame. Maybe it is just a half baked port. Capcom aren't doing a very good job of showing the effort they put into it. Smilie

Well, I blame IGN for putting it there in the first place.

How lame and unprofessional of the people responsible!. It better not be on the UK cover.

I actually tried to get a copy yesterday but my local store did not have it so I ended up getting J De Arc on PSP instead.

Did anyone manage to get a copy?, what are your thoughts so far ?

Aww I want J De Arc. Smilie Need a PSP though...

I find this very humurous though IGN must be honoured. Smilie

Oh LOL. Whoever does their box art needs firing. They probably went straight to Google images and made it in about 5 minutes. Smilie

i hope thge guy that just got it from IGN didt get pay for just take a pic lol

They probably got some work exchange kid to do it �_�

There was that baby-game for the DS that left a water mark on theirs too from a stock image website. (effectively making the cover illegal, as they havnt paid the right to use the image)

This is more just like a lazy-designer couldnt find the image.
Capcom own that image to start with.

Someone should tell Capcom about this. I'm sure they'd start putting out versions with a better cover, like for the EU release.

I like this cover very much.

And I am blind, for I do not see the IGN watermark...?!

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

It's right next to Ami's teeth - very faint though, but still definitely there - the lil 4 way d-pad logo:
