Theres alot of white and space, I kinda wish there was more to it

Don't worry, the US box art will have some more color and less sophistication.

Saaking3271d ago

I'm not impressed with the game itself. It could have been so much more, but we'll never see it reach it's potential. I am, however, interested in FFvXIII.

No doubt an american wrote this, cause everyone in EU/PAL(Nippon aswell?) want the cover this way and no other way, don't go changing something that doesn't need to be changed.

I'm glad that the JP version has this cover as it pretty much solidifies that the PAL/EU version will have the same cover.

If the word "enix" was not present anywhere on the box at all.

I'm sorry but the characters on FFXIII suck. I wouldn't want to see any of them on the cover.

gaffyh3270d ago

I'd prefer it to be simple, but when it comes to EU/US, they will change this to have a picture on it.

sikbeta3270d ago

I really like the box art. so simple.

Ssxtreme363270d ago

it could have been better. it almost seems half asses or something you would see at gameslut err....gamestop if you were to be looking at the pre order shelf.

im actually surprised by the amount of people who really like this somewhat blank & bland look. looking back at previous FF covers make it really seem disappointing to me. at least have a picture of lightning or a backdrop of the world as the background. C'mon SE, you make a fantastic looking game with a rich environment and a cast of colorful characters and you cant even splash a little color on the cover...come on. if this was the special edition then i wouldn't care but this is going to be on the shelves anywhere and everywhere games are sold....Come On!

FinalFantasyFanatic3270d ago

You'r joking right (It's more or less tradition and expected)? Oh well, to each his own. Every FF uses this cover design unless your American, please tell me we didn't have this discussion with FF12.

Personally I have always like the way the covers are done, simple and stylish and I have no trouble picking them out when they are on the store shelves or in my own video game collection for that reason.

I'm not a FF player, in fact I've never played one to completion (or even close), but isn't this generally what all the cases have looked like? Somewhat of a tradition?

UnSelf3271d ago

from what i remember this has always been the style for the title art, but the actual game cases vary and usu contain the protagonist(s) of the story

Disccordia3271d ago

Only in the US has the boxart had pictures of the protagonist. In Europe and Japan it has always been a plain white box with the logo like this.

theusedfake3271d ago

Yes, I am impressed. I love the old
traditional style. Amano's artwork
is amazing
