Whats up of us, and welcome to a different version of Box Art Brawl!

In last week’s edition, we took a take a look at The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap for the GBA; maybe one of the underrated entries to Nintendo’s enduring franchise. Japan as soon as once more took the lion’s share of votes with a whopping 76%. Europe got here in second place with 14% and North America in third with 9%.

It simply goes to indicate how useful the panorama orientation proved to be for Japan’s GBA bins; there’s merely much more area to work with, and that is demonstrated superbly with the colorful shot of Hyperlink surrounded by the Minish folks.

This week, had been sticking with Zelda as soon as once more to have a look at what is commonly thought-about to be one of many best entries to the franchise: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Launched in Japan for the GameCube in 2002 earlier than its western launch in 2003, the follow-up to Majora’s Mask was initially ridiculed closely for its drastic departure in visible model, with many mockingly referring to the sport as ‘Celda’ for its cel-shaded strategy.

Within the a long time since, nevertheless, fan appreciation of the sport has solely elevated with every passing yr, and there are lots of (together with us) who’re merely determined to see the Wii U’s HD version of the sport ported over to the Swap – please, Nintendo!

For this week’s Field Artwork Brawl, North America and Europe shall be teaming up as soon as once more as a result of stark similarities of their respective designs. Whereas there are variations in tone and color, the precise compositions are close to sufficient an identical. However sufficient chit chat, let’s get on with it!

Make sure to solid your votes within the ballot under; however first, let’s take a look at the field artwork designs themselves.

North America and Europe

The western design for The Wind Waker stored very a lot consistent with the collection’ gold theme, which was popularised with the launch of A Link to the Past some years prior. With each variations, we will see Hyperlink crusing atop The King of Purple Lions, although the image is undoubtedly extra distinguished within the European model. It is robust to say which one we desire as they’re so comparable in design, but when pressed, we would most likely lean in direction of the North American model for its brighter, subtler strategy.

Japan

The place the western launch of The Wind Waker demonstrated a extra “conventional” strategy to its field artwork, Japan went in the wrong way and opted for a brighter, extra vibrant strategy. You’ve got received Hyperlink himself entrance and centre waving his little Wind Waker baton round and he is surrounded by depictions of the sport’s opening prologue, together with among the gorgeous Hylian textual content. It is definitely a drastically totally different strategy in design, however we reckon it really works very well!

Thanks for voting! We’ll see you subsequent time for one more spherical of the Field Artwork Brawl.
