Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Box Art Brawl!
In last week’s edition, North American Box Art played against Japan by throwing Assault Suit Reinos / Target Earth into the ring. It’s also ruddy and close, and Japan’s more restrained gaming efforts won 56% of the votes. However, it’s clear that many people like the “there” artwork released in North America.
This week is Mario Kart Double Dash !! For one of the more unique entries to the Mario Kart franchise, GameCube (Thanks to the game that declared it the best in the series). Bring North America and Europe together to create this one. This is because the two designs are slightly different in composition, but they are a bit too similar to compete with each other.
On the other hand, in Japan, the design of box art is very different. It’s interesting to see which one you prefer.
But let’s start enough chat and show.
Please be sure to vote for the following votes. But first, let’s check the box art design itself.
North America / Europe
As I said, Double Dash !! North America and Europe feature very similar designs. In fact, the character and environment are the same, but the composition is slightly different, and the NA version has been greatly expanded. In other words, characters such as Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong have moved just behind Mario and Luigi. Yoshi and Bird pushed further to the left.
I don’t know which of these two designs was the “first”, but I’d like to be more focused on NA for this design. The EU version has a lot of unused space occupied by the blue sky and green hills. That’s great, but probably not as “punching”. In any case, we are not in conflict with each other, but let us know in the comments which one you like.
So, the Japanese version of Double Dash!teeth very Different, Mario and Luigi are shown in full glory on a white background, with a checkerboard running on the right. Sure, it’s modest, but it definitely has a “racing” feel here. I also like the fact that Mario and Luigi’s key art show the ability to handle two different weapons. At that time, it was a whole new metaphor for the franchise.
Overall, it’s a great design. It may not be as busy as the NA or EU versions, but it’s a little bit that we think it looks pretty pretty on the sleeves of steel books and collectors.
That’s it for this week! Be sure to vote and let us know in the comments your favorite design and why. peace!
Thank you for voting! See you next time in the next round of the Box Art Brawl.
