I seem to remember there was some story behind this cover- one of the game mags of the time used it as cover artwork, then Sega bought the piece to use as the boxart, or something? That's what I remember, at least. Anyone know which magazine it was?Vanderkaum wrote: The EU cover of part 3 is a real disaster though. One of the worst covers ever?
Anyway... Click the names to embiggen if possible:
Super Fantasy Zone
One of the most blue-skies video game covers out there, it captures the vibe of Fantasy Zone very nicely. Even better, they actually used this as the UK box art!
Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy
This is the box art used for the Japanese release of the game, and since Capcom were involved, they decided to let Shinkiro do the artwork. Better than the one we got, that's for sure.
Baseball Stars 2
Speaking of Shinkiro, here's some more of his work. Not sure which is the best part, the smug guy in the top-left or the ridiculous mascot.
Global Defence Force
This tells you everything you need to know about the game in one image- two playable characters! Insects everywhere! Global Defence action!
The Chikyuu Boueigun 2
However, perhaps you prefer the Japanese version of the box? It doesn't have as many insects on it, though, but still has great art.
A simple, but effective cover. The police tape reading "DO NOT CROSS - A MAN WITH NOTHING TO LOSE" is aces.
