90s US box art is poor

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.

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.

To be fair though it does look kinda cool and beefed up. I quite like it.
