Unlike the Japanese version, which comes in a paper envelope. The US version has a DVD case. It is now confirmed that seveal retailers have received shipments and is already handling them out. Here are two pictures.

Bleh, looks pretty crappy. A single logo would've looked much better.

Gotta agree with Gabriel. Looks like something a game magazine would do as a special package.

It does look sorta cheesy, but at least it comes in a sturdy DVD case instead of a crap envelope like we got in Japan. Though if the back of the box is right, you're getting some stupid preview movies. Metroid Prime? That's been out for months in the USA, why put a preview movie of that on there? I see no mention of Biohazard 4 or any of the other big 5 capcom games either. You get to see F-zero and 1080 snowboarding though. F-zero will be cool to see in motion, in DVD quality video, trust me.

Eck, I'll take my original Japanese disc over this one. Even though that one isn't very exciting to begin with!

I don't know guys I think it's fine. I like even. It's simple, short and sweet. It done it's job, have a decent case for a free game.

It's VERY nice to have a hard dvd case, I was actually worried about that. I'm highly organized and not having one for a seperate kind of game would drive me crazy. Having all my Cube games lined up and then just some disc sitting in an evelope...ugh...thank god they made it so nice, even a little instruction booklet. :D I can see that they did change the video previews, I was hoping to see some info on the Capcom five, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance or something like that. Hell even Crystal Chronicles maybe. It seems they are only 1080 (which is nice), F-Zero (damn nice), Metroid Prime (already got it), Wind Waker (demo is already out), Wario World (not bad, not great), and something I can't make out, I think it is Link to the past and Four Swords. Of course, if Wind Waker and a couple of others were playable demo's, that would make a wasted space like Metroid Prime not seem so bad to have on there. I should call Babbages soon and check on my OoT disc. Man hard case...that is some spiffy news!

I'm not gonna complain. It is free, after all. I should check tomorrow to see if any of local shops did get the discs. As for the previews, I don't know.. I can't wait to see F-Zero in action, maybe there will be more things the disc that aren't advertised.

Does this mean that if i goto Gamestop tomorrow, ill be able to get my disc a week early?

DVD cases rule. I don't have room to store those cardboard boxes anymore.

Doesn't look that bad to me, it suits the game anyway.

I'm glad they decided to go with a DVD case- I wasn't too wild about the whole cardboard sleeve idea..

Yet, I have to agree that the cover artwork really really bites... and I'm not to wild about the different previews either.. oh well :D

02-07-2003, 09:20 AM
Man all that information on only one disc. The box art is deffinetly not the greatest I have seen, but on the other hand I never buy games due to their box art. I will have to import this game from the U.S. for sure.

Sweet - can't wait..

Looking close it does say get a sneak peak at these and other hit titles. I suppose it's possible there might be one or two suprises people aren't expecting. I certainly hope so.

I like it, it is pretty much just like all the previose box art in the Zelda series. Straight, forward, and to the point.
