More French Advertisements
Here are three fascinating Wing Commander advertisements! The first is a 1992 ad produced by Electronic Arts for the European market, which does not have a US equivalent. In 1992, EA was particularly interested in establishing that they were now the sole distributor of Origin games (which had previously been put out by companies like Mindscape and Ubisoft on a case-by-case basis.) Wing Commander Academy was a good choice for foreign language magazine because the game itself didn't require localization. The second scan is a 1994 advertisement for the 'Hit Squad' re-release of Wing Commander I. This was a discount version released in several European countries (under several similar names, Hit Collection here) in a somewhat unique 'flashy' box. The third piece is a 1992 CD-ROM advertisement that shows the Software Toolworks edition of Wing Commander I!
