Box Art Comparison: Dark Spire (Nintendo DS)

It’s almost like playing one of those spot the difference games when you’re comparing the box art for The Dark Spire (American release) with its Japanese release, Genmu no Kiri to Ken no Okite which was released last year in Japan by Success.


Aside from the obvious title change (but the fonts look really similar), there’s an additional brick-like motive on the US cover, shaped like a tower/spire, to give emphasis to the title.

A throwback to really old-school RPGs, the US version of the game was released recently and it’s currently bundled together with the soundtrack CD, a pretty good bargain I must say at USD 34.90 (click here for details). The Japanese version is selling at the usual price of USD 48.90 for Japanese imports (click here for details)
