Wow, the Japan box art is badass.

Except... once again... Batman is taking Superman's place at the forefront.

Though for the sake of the story I guess it makes sense.

As. F. Usual.

Both look good to me. Doesn't matter. All i see is the splines on my shelf.

I like the design better for the US, but the artwork itself better for Japan.

I hate that in the US they always want to put floating heads in their covers/posters.
Relientk77  +   1064d ago
Japan's boxart is definitely better
BanBrother  +   1064d ago
It always is for some reason. Tales of Vesperia, Darksiders to name a couple. Just go to gamerankings.com, find a game, click into it and under images it will have the box art for every region. Japan always gets the Kickass cover. Good luck to them I suppose, I'm jealous.
parkerpeters  +   1064d ago
what else is new. Japan always gets the best art.
Blaze929  +   1064d ago
maybe because they have better artists...
Hicken  +   1064d ago
What?
nosferatuzodd  +   1064d ago
indeed look at their animes
Oh_Yeah  +   1064d ago
It's probably because Japan cares a lot about how something is packaged and presented. There's a whole wrapping culture over there.. http://web-japan.org/trends... so it takes more to catch their eye and sell them something.. Where as most Americans and Europeans just want a good game and really arnt bothered by how things like cover art look.

A nice big fat slap in the face to all the talented non-Japanese artists...

Off-topic, but love your avatar. Biggest Oscar snub in history.

I can live with the US box art but man that JP cover is much better!
HonestDragon  +   1064d ago
Aw man, that boxart is badass. It's way better than what we are getting. Still, I can live with what we're getting. The game looks amazing anyway.
E2S  +   1064d ago
I blame America's Joker obsession.
Stallion  +   1064d ago
Japan ussually gets better boxart. Look at Heavy Rain, ICO, FFX, Shadow of the Colossus, Demon Souls.
CrescentFang  +   1064d ago
I like the Uncharted one too
iWishTifaWasReal  +   1064d ago
i f*cking love the Dark Souls one.

it catches the game's deep concept.
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   1064d ago
Ah yes, the walking cooly towards the screen/audience with misty background boxart. An oldie but a goodie this gen.

Ugh, again with the walking cooly towards the screen thing...

It's bland, overdone and uninspired, the US version looks better IMO and I usually prefer the Japanese box art.
maniacmayhem  +   1064d ago
Batman looks pissed!
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   1064d ago
When doesn't he?
MegaLagann  +   1064d ago
The Western cover looks like a mockup, the Japanese one looks amazing. Remind me why we didn't get this again?
secretcode  +   1064d ago
..Can we get the cover that doesn't have the Nightmare Fuel Joker face on it?
Talamak  +   1064d ago
The Japanese version looks sweet...
JohnApocalypse  +   1064d ago
The Japan version fucking kills the Western version
chronoforce  +   1064d ago
i cant see what makes one better than the other
A7XEric  +   1064d ago
Nah I like the American version much better
Brownghost  +   1064d ago
its just an opinion, no need to get disagrees.

i have to agree. not exactly sure what everyones feeling about the Japanese cover..everything looks a bit scattered to me. the us cover is perfect because the faces offer a focal point. i really enjoy the fact that its symmetrical. maybe people are just "used to" seeing the us cover, idk.

either way, i think the main thing we need to focus on here is the fact that NRS is finally getting its foot in the door with one of its fighters in japan. As great as mortal kombat was, i dont think its ever been released in JP. perhaps injustice will be the game jp players pick up. would be a big step forward for nrs in the fighting game community.

Reminds me of the Resident evil 4 Japanese box art. It looked so much creepier. It reminded me of Blair Witch projects, when the English version just reminded me of a shoot em up.

Actually, as I'm a sucker for comics, I'd rather have the American version simply because of the comic book panel-ish seperation of the character illustrations. Japanese version looks kind of typical while the US version seems stylized, I'd happily put that on my bookshelf as it looks like a gorgeously drawn comic book cover.
Brownghost  +   1064d ago
Are you reading the prequel comics? They're badass.
Braid  +   1063d ago
I'll check it out Brownghost, thank you.

The last video game related comic I read was Carlos D'Anda and Paul Dini's Arkham City, which is a five issue mini series. It was a great read as well.

I got to keep it real its 1 hell of a box art. But i really care about the game in the box:)
mistertwoturbo  +   1064d ago
That is a strange boxart choice. Joker in the middle and Green Arrow knocked down between Superman and Batman.
CC-Tron  +   1064d ago
I prefer the American version. No Cyborg on the japanese cover.

of course. they get everything better
r21  +   1064d ago
Gotta agree on the Japanese box art, looks pretty cool.
Hufandpuf  +   1064d ago
Amerifan versin looks better. It seems like the japanese version should have guns in each character's hand.
fsfsxii  +   1064d ago
Ok, i want the japanese version now :(
ZeekQuattro  +   1064d ago
Japan almost always get better Videogame covers. I like both covers but once again Japan's just looks more epic. I just hope the game plays as good as it looks.
LordHiggens  +   1064d ago
I like the American one better...
porkChop  +   1064d ago
Yeah the JP cover looks much better. I like the bottom image on the NA one but the overall design ruins the cover. I hate when they mix n match multiple images on covers. It just looks tacky, unless it's done in a classy way like the GTA covers.
Tzuno  +   1064d ago
Look at that Joker smile. Priceless!!! :)
