|Non-free media information and use rationale – non-free video game cover or boxart for Shenmue (video game)|
This is the cover art for Shenmue (video game). The cover art copyright is believed to belong to the distributor of the game or the publisher of the video game or the developers of the video game.

Main infobox. The image is used for identification in the context of critical commentary of the work for which it serves as cover art.

Use for this purpose does not compete with the purposes of the original artwork, namely the creator providing graphic design services to relevant concerns and video game marketing to the public.
As cover art, the image is not replaceable by free content; any other image that shows the packaging of the item in question would also be copyrighted, and any version that is not true to the original would be inadequate for identification or commentary.
