Want to know why Marle was shown throwing fire in the boxart of the SNES Chrono Trigger?

(I know boxarts are/were made before the games are finished.)

Read below for the answer.



A refresher, the SNES Chrono Trigger boxart:




Chrono Trigger beta screens (top left pic):



Marle is throwing FIRE. Mystery solved. But that's not good part...

Compare that pic to the box art... it's exactly the same! I'm willing to bet my two marbles that this screenshot was what the boxart artist used as inspiration. Same enemy, same character positions, same area.

Mind blown.
