Box Art Wars

Box Art Wars

It's no secret that video game publishers redesign the artwork that graces the covers of their products depending on region.  For instance, while Kirby appears as a cute little puffball on Japanese box art, he becomes a furious force of pink nature in North America.  Artwork is changed to supposedly appease and appeal to the target market in question and it's open to interpretation which regions end up with the better artwork.  Over at Box vs Box, Diego and Ashley are chronicling box art variations from the past and present with comparisons of the covers of games such as Mass Effect, Super Smash Bros., Streets of Rage, Ico, Bubble Bobble, and many more.  You'll see some familiar faces and a few obscure titles in what proves to be an interesting but brief walk through box art history.  Just for fun, keep a count of how many angry eyebrows you find.
