The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Box Art

What’s interesting though is that it has a very different style to what you’d expect. Here’s a picture showing what it looks like:

Notice anything here?

Well, there’s no image of Hyrule on the box. That’s an interesting omission given the focus put on the large, detailed world you explore.

It’s also got a bit more of a ‘painterly’ style to the rest of the game. For example, the logo looks like it was painted onto the front of the box. Add the ‘warm’, somewhat strange looking background and you have a box art design that seems strange for this particular game.

But perhaps it’ll get changed in different regions. After all, Europe often gets slightly more lush, detailed box art designs than the US does:

Either way, I’m not sure I’m a fan of the box art released for Breath of the Wild so far. Doesn’t seem to be very fitting of the game, and it doesn’t really play to the strengths of its style.
