View Full Version : KOTOR Boxart - The final version? (Check inside)

I got an EB catalogue yesterday, and in it was a photo of what I assume is the KOTOR box-art.
Has anyone else seen it?
It looks awful puurtty.

Itís strange though, itís not a coming soon title and is on a page with other games which I think are already out. Maybe we have an early release coming? (*crosses fingers*)

I will scan it in this afternoon if anyone wants?
I have no software/location for upload, so I will probably need to email it.

I still have some space on a FTP. If you can send it to ruben@vanderleun.com, I'll upload it for you...

Com Raven
12-29-2002, 03:49 AM
yeah, show it to us...

and I hope we get it late february, march...

Taos
12-29-2002, 09:30 AM
I have a feeling that it's not the actual box art......but rather a fans or designers idea.......:)

Burrie
12-29-2002, 10:01 AM
I decided to check upon amazon.co.uk to see wether they have some box-art for the game... lo and behold :

http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P/B00006BMWZ.02.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Now, wether t'is the true box art, or a fan design, I wouldn't know. However, just the thought that it MIGHT be the box art, and knowing that it will lay on the shelves in the upcoming year just gives me shivers... which tells me that I'm getting a bit too hyped for this game :p

Taos
12-29-2002, 10:53 AM
That's the one I thought you were referring to......I thought that it(box art) might be that as well. I asked Com and he said that one has been out for a while.....

Com Raven
12-29-2002, 11:58 AM
Look on their homepage, they cut the part at the bottom that said "for illustration only" :)

So forget it :)

That pic has been long out before LEC did the real art...

Thrift
12-29-2002, 04:28 PM
I just sent it.


Thanks burrie!

Sorry, it's a ****ing huge jpg (1.3meg). I don't know how/don't have any software to shrink it.


Yeah it's much more professional looking than that image.

I'm almost certain it's the box art.

Thrift
12-29-2002, 04:57 PM
Wait, no I won't, it's too big to send.

I'm uploading it on a mate's web space.
Com if you want to put it on the main page can you host it so it doesn't take too many hits and crash it?
Ta.

[Edit: Thanks to Burrie it can now be removed.]

Com Raven
12-30-2002, 01:34 AM
hmm, hard one...

the image sure looks proffesional, but I am not sure if they'd just put Malak on front and be done with it...

still, it could be the one...

Burrie
12-30-2002, 01:39 AM
For those with a slower connection, I've shrunk the picture to 50% of its original size, and compressed it somewhat...

Thrift
12-30-2002, 05:08 AM
Cheers Burrie!

Actually, on closer inspection that black X-Box bar doesn't quite fit...

Either way, at the least I think it's a new drawing isn't it? It is kind of familiar but I can't place it. Maybe its been seen before from the footage/photos of E3?

Another thing that is interesting (possibly the most interesting) is the "15% Off Gameguide" thing.

Hannibal
12-30-2002, 05:26 AM
That says the game is $99.95. $49.95 when you trade in 2 PS2, Xbox or GC games. That's weird. What county is this from?
The game should be 49.95 without any trade-ins.

There isn't anything new in the ad. All those pictures have been up on the LucasArts site. So some creative person at EB could have put it together getting people hyped for the release.

Darth Simpson
12-30-2002, 06:54 AM
I doubt they're going to use that picture. If you look closely, you'll see that Malak's lightsaber is somehow...bent/out of sync at the top. Not a cool mistake to print on a couple thousand boxes.

Com Raven
12-30-2002, 06:58 AM
that pic was used on a billboard on sunset boulevard during E3 2002...

Burrie
12-30-2002, 09:48 AM
Didn't they also have that picture on some Star Wars magazine? I can vaguely remember that shot being the first screenshot I ever saw of Malak, and maybe the first image I ever saw for Kotr.

may...

in fact we launched this site one day before E3 started...

Taos

Whenever the art is released, I hope it's a good pic and worthy enough for this game. :)

I don't think it's crappy, I just think that they could do it better then that......and since both JO and SWG have "simple" box art, they should do something creative for Knights.....or I should say more creative to really show off the game......but that might be hard to do for a box art.....

Com Raven
01-02-2003, 06:50 AM
I like that simplicity...

Taos

There both weird in their own sort of way.

A cool box art would be Bastilla Shan with her dual-bladed saber dueling with some red-sabered sith.

Com Raven
01-04-2003, 08:32 AM
I think a abstract box, without characters etc would be better for a rpg...

After all, you decide how the hero looks...

Points?What are these points thing for?Anyone help please?

Anyway,I'd also like the shown box art,but I'd yearn for something more simple and elegant.That picture of (if it is)Malak looks a lot like Jerec of JK1.I'd like a bit of difference from the norm of Star Wars Box arts(or at least,the one previewed!).

Second one?As far as I know there was only one shown...or am I in the dark?Anyone advise?

Taos
01-08-2003, 12:26 PM
I thought I recently read a dev post....Chris Prieslty I think, he said that they weren't yet finished with the box art. Though I have read enough of his posts to think that he likes to mess with everyones head....

Lord Glorfindel
01-14-2003, 06:48 PM
I think someone else said this, I'll just say it again, the cover shouldn't have characters it just should be like a shot of a spaceship or a landscape shot with the KOTOR signia on it

Notion
01-14-2003, 10:57 PM
Whatever they put on it, it needs to have a lightsaber on it somewhere so casual gamers can create a sort of pre-concieved notion of the game. (lol, "notion") And of course it helps you know that it's star wars.

But on the other hand, if you put something unusual and symbolic, then put the star wars logo on it, it will arouse alot of curiosity.

SO as we've stated b4, we will have to wait and see.

Good point.. I mean, it's an RPG, so there aren't really any completely stable characters in the game, other than the villains or henchmen, which dont count as much as the star of the game.. YOU!

WalMart.com has a picture up that's different from any I'd seen so far, and different than any being shown/discussed in here:

http://i.walmart.com/i/p/00/02/32/72/31/0002327231975_500X500.jpg

I have no idea if it's official, though it looks pretty polished, but I just thought I'd put it out there for discussion.

They'd have to be holding back something pretty special for the box art to be better than that, but I guess we'll find out soon enough. In the end, though, as long as they don't forget to put the disc in the case, I'll be satisfied with pretty much anything they put on the front.

No problem! I had been reading this thread when I happened upon the picture, and thought that posting it would be a good way to get my feet wet as a poster in the forum. You know, make a grand entrance and all that. :) Though, having said that, I'll feel a little guilty if that's the official art and I spoiled their surprise just two days ahead of time.

As for the release date, maybe when they say Spring 2003, they're counting on the groundhog not seeing his shadow, which is scientific proof ( :rolleyes: ) that spring has arrived as of February 2. So that way, a February release date and a Spring release date aren't mutually exclusive. Yep, I'm sure that's what they're thinking.

Yeah, if you search for KOTOR and go to the product page, the small box art is there. I just clicked on that picture for the larger version, which is the picture I posted.

Well said. :) The diary itself was good, though. One part I found especially tantalizing, in addition to all the good game info, was the following:

"As Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic approaches its gold date..."

I'm probably reading too much into it, including my own wishful thinking, but it seems like he wouldn't have said it if it wasn't getting close. Of course, what's close? A week? A month? It's all too long for me. The more I read about KOTOR, the sooner I want to have it in my hot little hands. I guess an obvious solution would be to stop reading about it, but I think we all know how likely that is.
