Box Art Brawl: Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles

Be sure to cast your votes in the poll below; but first, let’s check out the box art designs themselves.

North America

All three variants of the Umbrella Chronicles box art share two commonalities: Albert Wesker and the Umbrella logo. The latter is particularly prominent in the North American version, slapped front and centre just below the game’s title. It’s also somewhat fractured, broken on the right-hand side with blood covering its red and white pattern; a sign, perhaps, of Umbrella’s impending demise. Wesker is also looking suitably menacing at the top of the image, with his signature cat-like eyes from Code Veronica shining out from the darkness.

Once again, we’ve got Albert Wesker at the top of the European design. It’s the exact same image that can be found on the North American variant, but much more zoomed in, and a lot darker. In fact, this whole image is very dark in comparison, which works quite well when you look at the zombies in the bottom half, but arguably diminishes the inclusion of Wesker and the Umbrella logo. Still, it’s a really nice composition overall.

Hi, Wesker! Yes, the long-time antagonist once again features prominently on the Japanese variant of Umbrella Chronicles, but this time he’s got his back to us, and his head is turned just enough for us to glimpse that eerie red eye. Down in the bottom half of the image, Capcom has deemed it necessary to include all the main characters from the title’s various scenarios, including Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Rebecca Chambers, Billy Coen, and Carlos Oliveira. It’s a great design, to be honest, but we’re not keen on the red triangle warning in the top left. Get that gone.

Thanks for voting! We’ll see you next time for another round of the Box Art Brawl.
