Hello folks, welcome to another edition of Box Art Brawl!
Last time, we took a look at Metroid Prime: Hunters on the Nintendo DS and the end result was pretty unanimous. The vast majority of you prefered the western design over Japan's, with North America and Europe winning with a whopping 86% of the vote! Clearly, the more abstract approach from Japan just didn't sit well with folks.
This week, we're going to be checking out a classic Game Boy title from Konami: Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge. Released back in 1991 (and over a year later in Europe), the game was considered a significant step up from Castlevania: The Adventure, with praise given for the inclusion of classic Castlevania weapons and better use of the Game Boy hardware.
It's another Duel this week, with North America and Europe once again teaming up against Japan. The designs here are drastically different and, in our opinion, are both incredibly strong. We've a feeling this is going to be a close one!
