Hello everyone. Welcome to another edition of Box Art Brawl!

Last week we introduced one of the Game Boy Advance launch games, Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. As expected, it absolutely includes sideways Japanese cover art and additional characters like Dracula and Hugh Baldwin. pegged A vote of 74% of the votes.

This time it’s a classic three-way battle between Europe, North America and Japan.We’ll be checking out another Game Boy Advance game with probably one of the most underrated games, The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap zelda The Legend of Zelda: A title developed by Capcom after the success of Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons.

I’m pretty sure which box art will take the crown this time around, but as always, I’ll leave it up to the awesome people to make the decisions. Tell us why in the comments!

Vote in the poll below. First, let’s check out the box art design itself.

North America

So overall, the North American and European box art for The Minish Cap looks pretty similar, but the difference in Link’s pose is enough to distinguish the two. Look like you’re strafing, jumping out of harm’s way, sword ready, Ezro ready for scrap!

Europe

In the European box art, Link’s pose is perhaps a little more impressive. literally Defeat the enemy with a ferocious backhand! The background is the same for both regional designs, albeit with slightly different tones (but it’s very likely an image we managed to source!).

Japan

Okay, just like last week’s Circle of the Moon, Minish Cap’s Japanese design benefits from extravagant space. Sideways means not only Link and Ezro are front and center, but also some Minish characters in the background. Successful. we love this!

Thank you for voting! See you at the next Box Art Brawl.
