Hatsune Miku's Vocaloid 3 release boxart is differs significantly between English-only voicebank and Japanese-only or bundle voicebank. Miko on English-only voicebank boxart appears significantly more mature than Japanese-only or bundle voicebank.

I have to say personally I think this trope isn't common as made out i've seen just as many inversions as play straight

Since Weblinks Are Not Examples, these examples will have to go for now until someone rewrites them properly. (The Sky Kid link is also broken.)

A notice to all those editing the page: Do not include entries like the one below.

This entry is not "The American boxart is grittier because <Insert Reason>." This entry is "I like the Japanese boxart better", which has nothing to do with this page. The American one is not grittier/darker/more hardcore, so this doesn't belong.

Apparently an episode of the Kirby Anime combines this with Super Dickery http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpVULlSxeEQ&feature=fvwrel

this might just be nit picking, but rather than starting a trivial edit war, WHY exactly does phantom Zelda's appearance on the NA Spirit tracks box art 'not count'? the Phantom's are separate enemies sure, but that distinctive coloration, and the eyes are exclusive to Zelda possessing them? the comment just seems kinda...I'd say maybe derogatory?

I must be Ameriken, since I prefer Rated M for Manly over cute.

Oh wait, I am Ameriken!

Anyway, both have their place.

Concerning NieR, I thought it was the other way around - The old dude was the original plan, but they made the alternate prettyboy version for Japan.

Half (if not a majority) of the article seems focused on old retro boxart, and speaks more about the company who produced it than a country.

Or about the company's view of what will sell in given country X. That's all the trope is describing, weird cosmetic changes made for marketing reasons.
