I forgot I had this and came across it the other day as I am selling some games to fund a Switch. I noticed in eBay some listings that said "First Print" with the little French tag on the left had side and sold for a bit more. Also noticed some listings that said First Print but the photo didn't have the tag.

Anyone know what's up?

I thought the French tag had to do with being Canadian version? I have one I bought the first time they were announced, gotta go into attic to check tag

EDIT: yep seems yours is just Canadian is all. Found mine, bought in 2011. No FR tag.

The few things that stick out to me as to why the cover art MAY be fake
1. It says FR, yet it's using NA cover art
2. Below, look at "DS" it seems... odd... none of my game cases do that, NA, EU, JP, etc. Though it could be the case itself and lighting..

It says French because Canada is a bilingual coutry
Also the ds logo is like that because the copy is still sealed.

Yeah Canadian games have the FR for French, and the back should also have some French text too.
Europe and UAE have the same boxart with link and épona while NA has gold.

Maybe there's like a print on the case? Like something was left weighted on it that caused those lines?

Those Canadian and UAE versions were all over eBay for almost reasonable prices after the US version went out of print and started commanding ridiculous prices.
