Hello folks, welcome to another edition of Box Art Brawl!
In our final edition of 2022, we took a look at the GameCube remake of Hideo Kojima's stealth masterpiece: Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. As expected, the Yoji Shinkawa designed cover for the Euopean and Japanese variant took the lion's share of the vote with 78%. That said, there were plenty of fans of the North American design who understandably thought that the stark red colour of Shinkawa's effort was a tad garish.
To kick of 2023, we're going to be looking at a classic title for the Nintendo DS: Metroid Prime Hunters. Though no where near as lauded as the mainline Metroid Prime trilogy on the GameCube and Wii, Metroid Prime Hunters was nevertheless an impressive showcase for the DS hardware. The 'First Hunt' demo packaged in with launch DS consoles more than proved the game's worth, though it's safe to say that the visuals and gameplay have not aged particularly gracefully by today's standards.
For this week's brawl, North America and Europe have identical designs and so will team up against Japan. So without further ado, let's get cracking!
