Variants

Bass Landing is unique among its North American bundle peers in that it actually has a case difference between the accessory bundle and the standard release of the game. The boxed version comes in as standard jewel case with a single sheet insert for the front cover. The thicker manual is tucked behind the jewel case under the cardboard tabs.

Double Jewel Case Incorrect Back Insert Art

The standard edition comes in a double jewel case to the manual fits now, along with the standard front and back inserts. Of note also is the standard version having the UPC code 0 93992 08671 8. It should be pointed out that the disc still bears the “not for individual sale” warning on it. Both original versions had their inside insert art swapped – the back insert is actually the front, and the back is the front. Agetec attempted to repair the mistake, with a hilarious outcome:

Double Jewel Case with “Corrected” Version

The corrected versions simply copy and pasted the front artwork to the back – so now it has it’s back insert spine…but the wrong artwork in the back…so it’s now a mistake of a mistake. *facepalm*

Enclosures

  • The fishing rod bundle of Bass Landing included a peculiar deal for the buyer. There was a free trial for a fishing magazine inside, but if the user subscribed to said publication for a year, Agetec would send them a free controller. It was a $15 accessory called the “Ascii Enhanced Controller” – Item #8180.

The double sided, folded subscription card is below.
