Nintendo box is clever

European game covers revealed

Nintendo has sent out cover shots for a couple of first party European GameCube games. The covers are extremely similar to the American GameCube releases and carry our old friend the Nintendo seal of quality assurance in the bottom right, along with a clearly visible ELSPA recommended age rating in the bottom left. A bubble in the top left carries the words "Only For" while the Nintendo GameCube logo rests dead centre at the top of the box, enclosed by a curving grey/white gradient line. Obviously in the case of non-exclusive third party software we can expect to see the "Only For" bubble disappear. This approach is actually strikingly similar to Microsoft's Xbox cover design with its green Xbox logo at the top and option "Only for Xbox" stamp. The European GameCube covers can be viewed at Cloudchaser.
