A while ago, Square Enix shared a nearly finished draft of the Final Fantasy XV box art. Today the publisher’s own store revealed the final version.
its really happening *_* https://memecrunch.com/meme...
Ugly... I want Amano's art style
yes please !
Its probably on the disc.
The Deluxe has Amano's work
It's actually beautiful with the contrast and the clouds, but understandably ppl want the original logo style as it is perhaps the most iconic in gaming.
I just want the artwork behind the logo, which by the way is present on the Japanese version.
Well, glad I'm getting the steelbook collectors edition. This is ugly.
For ppl to call it ugly is absurd. They're obviously trying to Americanize it.
No one asked them to. Most American fans prefer the Japanese box art for FF games anyway.
That's pretty bad
I think it looks rather cool.
It could be better
I don't like it.... but, and it could be nice, it seems that Noctis is saying: "Give me your hand and join us!" (to the player?) or "Wow, all this fighting made me thirsty! Come on, pass me a bottle of Chocobo Juice!""
Why change something, it's like it's focusing on a new audience Just a white background with the FFXV logo...like it's always been
Looks like 99% of the people here don't know that the cover is reversible
Oh I do I just don't see why that shown in the article is the reversible cover art Like the Doom one. The generic shitty cover is on the front while the good one is hidden.
Reason they use the generic one for the standard is because the average consumer is more attracted to this type of artwork than the cleaner more elegant and less busy customary artwork that we typically see on a FF box. It's just there to help sales like any cover art. For the FF fans, they'd get it regardless, so no need to attract their attention.
I think most people interested in Final Fantasy bloody well know what it is
@solid Yeah, that's my point. This artwork is to get people not interested in FF to look at it. These kinds of things focus test well among the non-fan, and that's why these homogenized, bland covers keep coming up, because it builds more attraction to the game itself. The fans will buy it either way, no need to pander to them.
Exactly Fox, the same happened with The Phantom Pain. I really miss the classic logos for FF and MGS.
Looks pretty cool but NTSC US covers on FF games were always very much this style. I prefer the EU/JP covers
They could've attached the logo somewhere up in the sky, not to hide the ominous entities. It is what it is, hopefully those who collect like it, I just want the content to be great.
I'll be making a custom cover for this too. Don't like this cover.
Looks better than the Japanese cover imo.
Decent enough, they're showing the characters' traits and it's different than the usual but tbh it would've been better as Noctis alone, his render being more enlarged and the sky used like 3/4 in the background.
Who are the figures in the clouds though? S%&t just got real!
Just like DOOM, it'll have a reversible cover. DOOM and The Evil Within had great reversible covers.
The Japanese cover art looks much better.
It has a reversible cover with the title over a black background. I'm probably going to use that instead.
The figures in the sky are what save this cover. It would have been pretty uninteresting otherwise, not to mention it would have conveyed very little about the game and made it appear pretty generic. So what are those giant things? Are they Archaeans? I kind of hope they aren't because Tabata said there's not that many in the game, and I'd rather not have the rest of them spoiled.
Lol - I love the expression of the guy on the far left. "Would you turn the hell around!?"
Looks dope to me
Even the box art looks bad.
not feeling it...
I like the box art personally :)
this better be good or I'll quit square for good
As long as it isn't Noctis, with his back to us, looking back over his shoulder, with a gun on his other shoulder, it could be worse. I'll always prefer the logo(for the particular FF title) as the cover art. Not horrible as is, though.
So fucking bland. Even the reverse they ruin it making the text hard to read.
PEOPLE. calm down. its been confirmed that the cover is reversible. There will be a black cover on the opposite side with the amano logo and Final Fantasy XV written on it.
Does it say, "10 Years in The Making!"?
I like it. Not sure what all the fuss is about.. Just look at CoD & BF box arts.
Why spoilers in the cover?
It is different, I like it.
