Poll: Box Art Prowl # 73 - 1080 ° Snowboarding

Poll: Box Art Prowl # 73 – 1080 ° Snowboarding

Welcome to the Box Art Tour and vote weekly (well, most of the time) to decide which of the two or more regional retro box art genres is the best.

Finally, we measured Duff e nuff, One of the latest additions to the Nintendo Switch online SNES list. Japanese version – called Dead Dance In those areas – the clear winner. The infamous North American edition came in second with one-third of the vote, followed by Poor Europe in third. Clearly No. Hard enough, then.

In an effort to get into the festive holiday mood, we see this week’s glorious snowfall 1080 skiing For N64. Simon, it’s got ‘snow’ in the title – what more do you want? Last year we saw the N64’s premier ski series this time around, so Nintendo’s first-party effort is the obvious choice this holiday season.

So, choose your favorite porter (Ricky Winterborn! Akari Hayami! Diane Blaster!) And exit on the slopes of them.

The NA version spins over you with a dynamic low-angle shot of a skiing CG Menequin, presumably in the middle of 1080. The logo stands out in the upper right corner against the backdrop of white powder kicked by Sior CG, while the crisp blue sky provides the quiet backdrop for the rest of the film.

A few fir tretos break the frame down, on a relatively irregular cover. Not bad.



The EU version gets the usual first-party black border around its ‘porter’ and uses a completely different image, courtesy of Steve Austepen. Lamar board branding is visible again and the logo thanks to the blur effect used in the background.

The blackboard is a purchased flavor (which is partly what makes us stand out from the top edge of the console logo), but overall we like this with its NA number.



The Japanese version uses the same image of the EU variant, which is sprayed in the middle of the box for a while with a ‘portrait’ orientation. Lamar gets a very obvious shout with the range of boards listed on the left, and the logo is inflated to occupy the bottom half of the cover.

We like the extra details of the small board in the lower left corner, however the white-out effect feels a bit cheap. Some snow covered terrain would have been nice, wouldn’t it?

So, you ‘ve seen porters, but what’s really pulling the myth of 1080? Select your favorite and press ‘Vote’ to let us know below:

We hope you enjoy the holidays. Join us next time for a less festive but awesome box art based bout. Until then!
