    That's some kick ass boxart, if I do say so myself.

    Didn't really like this game. The game's just goes too slowly, I guess...though I'm not a big Metroid fan in the first place :/

    Comparison of boxart:

    US and PAL boxart look about the same...
    Japanese boxart definitely gets the cake [​IMG]

    yeah i agree, the pal and us boxart seems like it was created in like five minutes in photoshop, but the japanese boxart just looks the don, imo.

    Actually, I prefer the USA/PAL cover.

    I really like the JAP cover and I would prefer it as background over the other ones, but as for a game, I think the USA/PAL cover works better. It shows exactly what this game is about. Samus, with it's dark alter ego in a grim galaxy.

    The japan one just shows all the characters, but I think it fails in showing what the gameplay is all about in one eyesight more than the european/american boxart.

    I still love the japanse cover art as picture on it's own though, definitely.

    Ya, strange ain't it?

    It was released just today, where as the PAL and US versions have been out for a while.

    We get Metroid before them; they get Brawl before us.

    I'm pretty happy to have metroid now, not really that hyped up for Brawl, more interested in Mariokart, I'll get it to see the fuss and on-line but there are other games I'd rather be spending my money on.

    Its because this Metroid game was developed in the states, thats why the US and PAL got it first.

    Japanese people aren't really into shooters I believe, which is probably why they took so long to release it over there.

    The cake is a lie.

    But hey, it's just a boxart o:

    The reason it took so long was because they were trying to decide on a new cover for the game

    I don't get it. Metroid 2 had sweet box art. Although the japanese release looks better then everyone else's.

    Shooters are somewhat growing in Japan, aren't they? Xbox 360 has sold much better (relatively speaking) than the first Xbox.
