Topic: why are some gamecube game cases purple?

Posts 21 to 24 of 24


Yeah I am thinking it is a PAL thing. I live in NA and I have never seen a purple Gamecube case. Even when I go to my local retro game stores all I have ever seen is black cases for the GC. That's interesting though. Can another other PAL region players confirm this?

Well, my copies of Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly, Pokémon XD and Animal Crossing all have black cases, and they're PAL copies.

Zelda Collectors Edition and Super Mario Sunshine for me both have purple cases. All the others are black or Silver.

I have the awnser

In europe a few games came with a diffrent color case. Mostley because it was the first run of the release, i have listed the ones i know of below
Game - Color - More info
Mario Sunshine - Purple - The first run - There are copies with normal black cases but if you bought it at release it should be purple
Mario Kart Double Dash - Red - The first run - There are copies with normal black cases but if you bought it at release it should be red
Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker CE - Gold - This is the version with Ocarina of Time can be found in black but if you bought it on release you should have gold
Gamecube instore demos 1-8 - Purple - These cant be bought but the first 8 of total 19 came in a purple case without a cover image
Players Choices - Silver - Every PC had a silver case but we all know this ^^

Because i got my version of Zelda Collectors Edition from the Star Catalogue i have a black pal one so why that one is purple i dont know? Maybe some one changed it to purple? In my opnion it should have had a silver one So basicly if you have a different color its one of the first in release.
