2. Chrono Trigger (SNES, 1995)

Chrono Trigger

Despite not being a huge fan of Akira Toriyama’s work, even I have to admit that this box art is astounding. The dazzling colors of the cast pop elegantly against the stark white backdrop. Furthermore, given the arrangement of the characters, and the overall fantastic sense of depth the image conveys, it feels as if Crono is nearly leaping off the box itself, which is an impressive feat if for nothing else than the artistic skill it takes to create such an illusion. And yes, Chrono Trigger fanboy, I put it on here even with the inaccuracy regarding Marle using fire magic instead of water. Now get over it and yourself because no one thinks you’re awesome for being able to point out that discrepancy.
