i dont' see "America's Next" words at box art. why this change?

This is (Europe) game, so UK English title has top priority. Localized boxart title is used for EUR titles when UK English boxart doesn't exist/not available.

but boxart from this game fully in english. so it not localized. an because there is no any mention about other languages not on box, not in booklet — i think this is a true english version.

UK boxart is this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Americas-Next-Top-Model-Nintendo/dp/B001GG7DVQ

Family is:

TOP MODEL |NTR-YNLY-EUU|2907 - America's Next Top Model (Europe) (En,Fr,Es,It) [b]
GNTM II |NTR-YNLP-EUR|2193 - Germany's Next Topmodel - Das Offizielle Spiel zur Show (Germany)
GNTM II |NTR-YNLX-EUU|3073 - Hollands Supermodel - Win de Strijd op de Catwalk! (Netherlands)
MISSRUNWAY |NTR-YNLE-USA|3766 - Mission Runway (USA) [b]
TOP MODEL |NTR-YNLZ-EUU|4759 - America's Next Top Model (Europe) (En,Fr,Es,It,Sv,No,Da)

YNLZ seems to be the nordic release, altough it seems to be available in other countries too ;). Note that german release uses an english title (except subtitle), but it is a localized title anyway.

That's the boxart for YLNZ, of course. Even the same logo is used for 2907 on titlescreen IIRC.

But UK boxart reads "America's Next Top Model". And we apply title from English boxart (UK one has top priority) to (Europe) titles.

I can't recall a better example, but it's simply like "Horse & Foal - My Riding Stables" family. In this one the nordic boxart seems to match UK one, ok, but it could not, and be different for Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Which title to use then?. In fact the (En,Es,It) has a localized boxart for Italian at least.

So we simply apply a priority naming rule to avoid/solve the conflict. This has to be applied to this case too, for DAT naming consistency, although probably YLNZ boxart in all target countries use "Top Model".
