    It mocks itself.

    Agreed. See Ico and Resident Evil 4 for examples of inferior American box art.

    More ridiculous box art for you. I could just do the other Mega Man games, but I'd be posting all night.

    Interestingly, this is a port of Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap.

    Corrected, but I've never heard of the Atari 400/800.

    I read in a magazine that the cover was done for 'heavy huh? factor.' They wanted to give people a reason to pick up the box (instead of the dozen other space shooters) and figured an old dude with a banjo is too weird not to give a second look.
