The European box art for Twilight Princess HD has been revealed and the design closely resembles the Japanese cover. 


The European box art

There are a few noticeable differences between the two including Midna’s hair, additional ornamentation on Ganondorf’s armour, along with subtle colour and compositional differences.

The North American box art bears an alternate design that depicts different illustrations of Link, Wolf Link and Midna. It retains the other elements, albeit with very different colouration.

    What will the amiibo functionality be?

  • Let’s be honest Nintendo doesn’t even love this Zelda.

    Ocarina of Time 3D – Europe got a new original piece of art to decorate the cover (North America sadly got the generic gold hued cover with old character art on it… but it still at least looked presentable)

    Majora’s Mask 3D – An amazing new piece of original art was reatd and plastered thankfully across all the boxes across the world.

    Wind Waker HD – A very polished original piece that paid tribute to the original box art (for Europe and Japan anyhow) that was thankfully put on all region cases. Although North America got the gold hue version.

    Then along comes Twilight Princess…. and it’s just a hodge podge mish mash of the old art work with a few new pieces of character art that just look copy and pasted on. Like seriously what’s with Ilia there on the right side just floating around. Not even symmetrical with Ganondorf. Also they out right ditched Zant off the cover, lol. Doesn’t matter what region for this… they all followed this design logic.

    Just mish mash a bunch of art pieces together that don’t match in style.

    So why is Ilia on the box art given the lesser plot importance of her character? And Ganondorf should not be on it as his appearance was a revelation. I don’t care that is a remake. New gamers playing it the first time don’t know he is in it. Otherwise it is beautiful.

      I’d say she was sufficiently significant, she’s a big part of the reason Link started his quest in TP in the first place.

      I totally agree about Ganondorf though, he shouldn’t be there. Neither should Midna’s true form for that matter, the reveal of what she really looked like was meant to be an awe inspiring surprise.

      Yeah, what’s the deal with 2 spoilers on the cover!?
