Argos Displays UK ASR Box Arts. UK Release Feb 19th?

UK box Xbox 360

UK retailer Argos is now displaying what could be the final UK box arts for Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing but one major difference to the leaked U.S. box art is the absence of Banjo & Kazooie on the front. So could SEGA of America be using the bear and bird as a selling point on their box art while SEGA Europe don’t feel the same or could Banjo Kazooie’s appearance on the cover have been scrapped for the final box art?

Another difference is the lack of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection logo on the DS version compared to the leaked U.S. box art that contains the logo.

One more difference is on the PS3 box which oddly contains both the old left side Playstation 3 banner AND the new top header PS3 banner compared to the leaked U.S. box art that only contains the new top header PS3 banner.

Argos’s listed release date has been changed from March 26th to February 19th so could a release date be coming soon from SEGA Europe?

  1. Whats with the ps3 cover? Pick one dammit
    Wish they never changed the look >_> my library looks all stupid now.

  2. I know what you mean. My wii library looks weird now because NSMBW comes in a red case. So I have a beautiful row of nice white Wii games on the shelf, with a big red one plopped right in the middle.

  3. I’m guessing that those aren’t official final versions, more mock-ups. Either that or someone better get to work on the Playstation 3 box. It just looks ridiculous…

  4. wow where banjo-kazooie in the cover as we saw earlyer this weak? strange isn’t it!
    Well I rather prefer tails in the cover but Banjo-Kazoie is still cool characters, I’m considering buying B&K: Nuts & Boltz for my 360ΒΊ hehe

    SONIC is the BEST! πŸ˜€
