Be sure to cast your votes in the poll below; but first, let’s check out the box art designs themselves.
North America / Europe
This is the kind of cover that you would expect from a game with a title like ‘Burger Time Deluxe’, right? It’s got a comically stressed chef, some scary food items, a winding maze, basically, it tells you everything that you need to know about the game from one quick glance. It’s exactly what we remember Game Boy covers looking like, even if that evil pickle is going to haunt our dreams for a few days to come…
Woah, ok. So this is… different. In the ultimate question of ‘where are they now?’ the Japanese cover chooses not to show anything about the game itself, instead hoping to shift copies with nothing but a smiling girl and a burger. She points to her mouth as if to say “you want to look as happy as this? Play Burger Time Deluxe, only on Game Boy!”
Yes, it tells us next to nothing about the gameplay or indeed the central concept, but hey, you’ve got to respect the complete 180 on the marketing.
Thanks for voting! We’ll see you next time for another round of the Box Art Brawl.
