It's considerably less blue than than the Japanese box art, but word around the campfire is that this may be the box we're all going to be opening in October for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass.

Whether it's shields or mini-sites, we can't seem to stop torturing ourselves with Phantom Hourglass news.

If you paid close attention to yesterday's Phantom Hourglass commercials, you might've spotted the lobster design (or is it a crayfish?) on Link's shield. What do you think of the new look?

Take a look at the Japanese box art for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (via DS Fanboy).
