Hi folks, and welcome to another edition of Box Art Brawl!
Before we dive into this week's heated battle, let's take a look at how we got on last time. We took a look at a new addition to the Nintendo Switch Online service, and that's Burger Time Deluxe for the Game Boy.
Rarely have we seen such bizarre box art before, but the more - shall we say "traditional" - western version took the lion's share of the vote with 77%. Admittedly, the Japanese version just looks like an old advertisement for McDonald's or something, so we can certainly see why it failed to entice voters.
This week, we're going to be checking out Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES, or as it's known in Japan, Super Mario USA. Y'see, Nintendo quickly released a sequel to the first game in Japan known as 'The Lost Levels', but opted to give it a full numbered title. As such, when Super Mario Bros. 2 launched in the west, Nintendo needed to give it a different name in Japan to differentiate it from the existing sequel. It's a whole thing...
Anyway, given the different names, the box art for this game is \quite different for North America/Europe and Japan, so it's going to be a good old-fashioned duel this week. Let's get cracking!
