Comparing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Differing US and European Box Art

Buried beneath numerous gameplay videos and information coming out of this week’s Nintendo Switch press conference, you may have missed the fact that the company unveiled two distinctly different pack shots for the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Each is region-specific; and while similar in theme, the US box-art features protagonist Link standing triumphantly atop a mountain with his back to the camera, whereas the UK and European cover has our hero facing the camera – presumably because Nintendo count on him being more instantly recognisable in the US. The US art also has a darker, more serious tone, while the European version is a little more cartoonish, with softer, cutesy colours.

You can check out each cover side-by-side below:
