As I promised at the end of the latter post, here are five European DS box arts of which I'm particularly fond:
1. Contact--How much do I like this RPG's European cover art? So much that I recently bought it despite the fact that buying the North American version would have been a bit cheaper. Really, though, how could I have said no to those adorably pixelized characters and that awesome, retro-tinged logo?
2. Final Fantasy III--True story: I've seriously considered picking up a European copy of this game (even though I already own the North American version) simply because of its beautiful box art, which brings to mind the classic imagery that appears on the packaging of the Super Famicom release of Final Fantasy VI and the PlayStation port of Final Fantasy IV.
3. Kirby Mass Attack--What do you get when you combine the best elements of the covers created for the Japanese and North American iterations of this portable puzzler-platformer? You get the glorious artwork that can be seen above, of course.
4. The Last Window--The design folks at Nintendo really nailed it when they came up with this game's box art, don't you think? I particularly love its moodiness, which is far more evident than it is when looking at its Japanese counterpart.
5. The Rub Rabbits--There's no doubt about it: this game's name is really weird. Off-putting, even. Its cover art, though, is the complete opposite. Was it enough to get European gamers to pay attention to this mini-game compilation? Sadly, I'm guessing it wasn't.
