Hello everyone,

I had a weird situation recently. Well I bought Shantae Pirate´s curse for 3DS on ebay. The tracking number said delivered after a few days but I never got it. After making searches that didn´t work  on USPS website I decided to buy the game from amazon. Since almost a month passed and I thought the game would never arrive. To my surprise both games arrived yesterday. Undecided  Anyways I noticed the game from Amazon had lower quality printing. Images look blurry. Specially on the back of the box you can barely notice Shantae on the back screenshots. Even the company logos look blurry. So I wanted to ask. Do you guys think this game is counterfeit? Or maybe it´s used and they just print the cover and shrinkwrap it again? I tried to scan it so you guys can look but I don´t know if the differences look clear enough. It´s like one of them was professionally printed and the other wasn´t. The top image is the one from Ebay and the bottom is from Amazon.

Do fake 3DS cartridges that actually work on non-modded hardware even exist? Because I don't recall ever hearing about such a thing tbh Confused

Personally, I think it is most likely a changed cover but a legit game.

It seems other people have had the issue with this game.

Someone said they might be early prints that were fixed later. What do you guys think  ?

That's how mine looks that I bought a long time back from Wal-Mart or Target maybe and I thought it was done kind of bootleg game but I did a little research and they all seem to have low quality artwork on the box art.

The odd thing was that the one from ebay looks very high quality printing. No pixelated or blurry images And you can see all the details in the game screenshots from the back. But oh well. I´ll just keep the one from amazon sealed. Maybe I´ll sell it later.
