    Hey all, so I live in the UK but import my games from the States and Canada. I've recently ordered a Wii U and want to get The Wind Waker HD - and I noticed online that it has a snazzy metallic effect on the cover. My question is...


    Are all copies in the US like that or is it only 'special', limited versions? If so, I'll have to go on a specific search - if they're all like that then good news for me!

    All copies are like that in North America. Only Europe/Japan got the normal non-metallic boxart.

    The US cover is almost all goldened (just as the usual is on all Zelda US releases), and it's standard for them.

    I'm glad we didn't get that bloody yellow cover as it takes pretty much all of the colour, minus Link himself and the logos.

    Note 1: The spine on all Wii U - US games are white whereas the EU releases of Wii U spines are completely blue.

    Note 2: The EU cover has a reversible cover that serves as a wallpaper/background.
