I just reblogged a post by the joy-inducing boxvsbox about The Guardian Legend, and thought you might like a bit of extra trivia to go along with it. The US box art was the odd one out next to the European and Japanese boxes. That cover design choice was actually based on something unrelated to the game. Here we have the movie poster for Creature (1985) next to the box for the The Guardian Legend on NES in the US. The inspiration is undeniable.
Guardic Gaiden VS. The Guardian Legend VS. The Guardian Legend, 1988/89/90
Man, the US art is well done and all, but I kind of wish it was an image of the protagonist like the other two. She looks SO COOL!
