American Box Art Makes Kid Icarus Look Angrier Than He Should

Illustration for article titled American Box Art Makes Kid Icarus Look Angrier Than He Should

I...just...you know...sigh. Whatever. Stuff like this won't stop anyone from buying Kid Icarus on 3DS. But stuff like this does make me wonder who the hell is getting paid to make pointless decisions like this.

On the left, the Japanese box art for the upcoming Kid Icarus: Uprising. Note the childish smile because this is a Nintendo game, and he's a cute kid. On the right, the American box art. Same cover, mostly, but the smile has been removed, and replaced with a scowl.

Note there's also less pink on the American cover.

So, for 2012 smiles and sunsets are out at Nintendo of America!

We are an angry bunch of people...and anybody who says otherwise gets stabbed in the face!

Seriously though, the rest of the world really sees us like Imperial boogeymen with guns.
