Nintendo has recently announced a new poll box art brawl competition for their Sonic CD game. The competition, which is taking place on Nintendo’s official website, allows fans to rate and vote for their favorite version of the box art. The poll will close on September 20th, when the winning piece will be revealed. This is a great way for gamers to support their favorite Sonic CD cover and show appreciation for the game.
The goal of the competition is to determine which packshot – or front box art – fans think looks best. Participants must choose from four different versions of the game’s packshot: two European versions, one Japanese version, and one special anniversary edition cover from 2011. After making their selection, fans can rate each packshot out of five stars. The votes will be tallied until September 20th when a winner will be announced.
Motivation Behind Contest
Nintendo’s decision to hold this poll was influenced by both fan demand and nostalgia. Though the game was released 26 years ago in 1993 on Sega CD, its classic 2D platforming gameplay is still well-remembered by retro gamers today. By holding this poll, Nintendo gives players an opportunity to honor the title and participate in a unique promotion.
“This unique polling system allows us to celebrate our anniversary titles in new ways,” said Yoshiaki Shinozaki, Senior Vice President at Nintendo. “We are excited to see how our fans interact with this contest and can’t wait to find out which iconic design they choose as the winner.”
How To Participate
The poll is open now on Nintendo’s official website and only takes a few minutes to complete. All
