    Gotta admit, that's a pretty boring and lack luster boxart...

    It could be that being sick is clouding my judgment, but nothing really appeals to me when seeing this cover. It just seems like your average game cover. Might be because the train in the background isn't really exciting.

    The cover will probably have foil on it to make it sparkle and what not like Pokemon Platinum.
    And that might make it a bit better.

    Wow, I can't wait for this one. If the cover art has already been released, maybe we will see this game before christmas.

    It's coming 7 December 2009. You can see that in the source.
    So yeah, it's before Christmas [​IMG]

    It looks genuine, but the boxart overall is just a bit bleh...

    i would have liked it better if there was a motorbike or sports car in the background ( or the very liked - aeroplanes of final fantasy )
    i feel the game will not hv a very good taste as it should have ... less than PH even
    i liked minish cap the most and have slightly played ocarina and i wish they put games in this category or style

    They should've given the train in the background more life. It was a bad move to make the background completely grey because that basically makes the cover only Link and his Guard buddy and the train is more of a small detail added in.

    Great boxart.

    Why is Link so close to the corner though? Is the train that much more important than Link?

    For a modern Zelda game, that's pretty boring boxart. Hopefully the background will be shiny like Chris_Skylock said, while keeping the foreground normal. The game actually looks appealing to me though, despite only small footage being released.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?

    I don't see why people are getting their panties up in a bunch over box art. They could put a simple stick figure on the cover and everyone who intends to play it will play it anyway.

    Excuse me sirs but I took art class in grade school and you can clearly tell that this cover art is completely faulty in every way shape and form. It needs more crayon coloring!

    But yah I was just commenting on the positioning of the characters and the shading/focusing of each object and which shows more importance (which I learned from my great friend photography classes ftw).

    Box arts are the whole game also, if the box art is bad I'll never play the game EVER [/sarcasm]

    Looks pretty, I want to draw Link and the one guy in armor (I haven't played PH in a while so I can't remember what they are called) lol.
