Mario Party 3 Box Repro, error or unknown?

Hello!

A good friend won a Mario Party 3 recently. Several of us have noticed small differences when comparing it to another legitimate box. (pics provide)

- Color is slightly different and text on back too. Its not off in a way repro usually is.

- Color isn't full off, slightly "paler". very faint but noticed, especially back red strip. 

- Major thing is it doesn't have built in tray like all the others.

- feel and touch is authentic

I'm thinking its a repro (very good one) due to the things mentioned about but others (deemed to be quite knowledgeable) claim it is legit and a rare "variant". I was possibly thinking misprint or error but a double whammy without a tray just makes it harder to believe.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. 

If more pics are needed, please let me know and I can provide.

Thanks!

Looks real and it's just sun faded.

It's a variant box and manual. Matching manual is missing the "U/" in the product code and it's printed in Japan, same for the box. Box comes with a white cardboard tray instead of the usual built-in cart holder.

There's a variant like this for Super Smash Bros. too and possibly one for Mario Party 2 (I really believe I saw it).

I had one at some point and posted it back on Nintendo Age in 2015 and nobody cared 😂
