The protagonist of Sword of Vermillion is different, looks like a Shonen character in the japanese artwork and doesn't have a horse.

That art is from the arcade version and it DID have all those thnings

Super R-Type is the worst game in the series so at least the box looks cool.

>> No.3944143

Starbuck isn't. It's a blue haired guy on arcade. Besides they knowingly used the arcade art despite it being a world different.

But that's also true, it's 100% pure action unlike the first Actraiser which had simulation stages.

Except that's not the truth EITHER, it's Toriyama basing concept art off a beta screenshot:

>> No.3946684

Feck me, I was going to post that exact same image.

>> No.3947389

The flame flickers between blue and red rapidly during the animation, so it's possible that they took a picture of it during the frame where it was red, which is where that screenshot originated from, and why the box art looks odd.

The final level is Death Helm, a lone structure that is located on an a small island, surrounded by several small volcanic islands. What's depicted on the box art is definitely not a small island and there's no signs of volcanoes nearby. The "Master" never saw Death Helm intact at a close distance on land. It was destroyed before he even step foot on the island, so technically the scene depicted in the box art never occurred.

The second to last level is the Tower of Babel where you fight the robot on the roof of the tower, which is completely flat. The tower depicted on the box art has a pointy top. It's definitely not the Tower of Babel.

Good riddance.
