Although European and North American gamers have been playing the Wii version of Activision's GoldenEye 007 don't-call-it-a-remake-of-the-classic-Nintendo64-title since late last year, their brothers and sisters in Japan are still waiting to get their mitts on this Eurocom-developed FPS.
They won't have to wait much longer, though, as the powers that be at Nintendo of Japan recently announced a June 30th release date for this so-called "re-imagining."
Will the resulting release be worth the wait? Based on the Japanese version's rather snazzy box art (below), I'm going to go out on a limb and say, yes, it'll be well worth the wait--for the five or so gamers who are looking forward to it.
For the sake of comparison, here's the art that graced the cover of the North American version of the game:
I wouldn't go so far as to call the box art above ugly, but I'd definitely say it looks a bit cheap next to its classy Japanese counterpart.
Which one do you guys and gals prefer?
