November 6th, 2011 by Tony Garsow

All three major regions representing, here’s a comparison of Final Fantasy XIII-2’s game covers:

Japan | North America | Europe

    I think the NA box isn’t as cool =/.

  • Rusty

    I live in the NA territory and I like our art because I really don’t want to see Gaius’s stupid face. But I feel it will hurt sales of all the boys who don’t know FF and just see a girl with a sword on the box and pass it up. Perhaps I am over thinking it

  • Cody

    @Rusty
    I think the only reason is because ff13 had lightning on the front of it, so they want people to recognize the box in stores. It’s actually not a bad idea in a business stand-point.

    Kaius is sweet in my opinion lol

  • lalik

    I like the NA box really much. When I get my hands on it I will place it next to the first one and just stare at it. lol

  • Blaster

    NA’s boxart is an eye sore if you put it next to JP’s or EU’s.

    my opinion.

  • whamigubadudududududah

    @Blaster
    It’s an eyesore because no one is worthy of it’s awesomeness : P

  • von

    I perfer the NA boxart only brcause the XIII-2 logo is an eyesore 😛

  • rattyinc

    YES!! the EU version is getting just the Amano logo. Sweet. Although it would look outta place with the firstquel. Well i got the C.E so the art is of Coccoon/fang/vanille/ragnarok …. all is good. i hope…wonder what the C.E box will look like

  • Blaster

    Amano’s logo is an eyesore? oh my..

  • dan hibiki

    @Rusty

    I think the exact opposite: what’s better than a pretty armored girl to draw the attention of some random boy who doesn’t know/recognize FF?

  • AgitoXIII

    An eyesore? Um, Amano’s work is great and should be admired.

  • Montai

    I like the box art. It reminds me of the days (ff7-9) where they had the characters on the box art.

  • lalik

    Don’t all NA final fantasy box art have the characters on the it?

  • rattyinc

    @ Montai … now that you mention it 7 had cloud on the front cover….9 had the party minus a few players on the front cover…but 8 was just the logo. ….. unless i bought them from different territories without knowing it.

  • TheExile285

    I love NA’s box art.

    also I think Normura’s works are much better then Amano, but that’s my opinion

  • lalik

    @rattyinc my version of FFVIII have squall, Rinoa and seifer on the front. I don’t know why yours just have the logo.

  • Aluminah

    @rattyinc
    There’s a chance NA FFXI had the logo and NA FFIVDS as well, but everything else features at least one character from the game as opposed to JP/EU which have the logos.

    @TheExile285
    Sort of an unjust thing to say…
    Nomura, for the majority, makes anime-like zipper-filled characters with cool hair whilst Amano is a professional illustrator that, in a visual level, puts the fantasy in Final Fantasy when he interprets events or character designs, as it can be seen in the logos.
    Not only that, Nomura doesn’t make CG renders so he’s not directly responsible for the CG in any of the game’s NA covers.
    Unless what you’re saying is basically this:
    I like cool characters, not some dreamy drawings. Then yeah, sure.

    FF just feels nicer, less blunt and more mature when it is presented with it’s logo.

  • AgitoXIII

    @ Aluminah

    Amen!!! Very true.

  • rattyinc

    @ Exile285 (ithink) Nomura’s art is really good, i like it (characters CG models based on his drawings…for the later FF’s anyways) it’s very aesthetically pleasing. Whereas Amano’s artwork has this raw visually artistic style to it which is megalofantastic. But i’d personally prefer an Amano cover over Nomura for an FF fame … talking to you dissida duodecim

  • Montai

    Whoops. I meant to say 7-10! I never played ff11, and my ff12 had the metal case, so there was no character on that version, unless you got the normal version.

  • TheExile285

    have you guys never heard of the term called “opinion”

    it’s the thing that’s different for every person…

  • Aluminah

    Sure, no one’s bashing you.
    It’s just the language you used that sort of makes it an unfair comparison and even erroneous considering we’re talking about actual artwork and CG.
    Amano is directly responsible for the illustration and logos, but Nomura isn’t responsible for the CG.
    If anything, you can just say “I like CG characters on the front cover more than the logo”, but saying it’s “Nomura’s work”…not really correct.

  • Aluminah

    Unless of course you’re talking about what rattyinc said, which is specifically for Dissidia/012.
    Those two games literally have Nomura’s artwork on them, but from what I could feel around, you were talking about the CG in older games (an now XIII-2.

  • Aluminah

    *(and now XIII-2 as well)

  • lalik

    I love Amano’s artwork. Especially FFX’s logos. Yuna sending in Amano’s style is nice.
