Let's play: 'Which box art is better?' (Sin & Punishment 2 edition)

Nintendo of America unveiled the cover art for Sin & Punishment: Star Successor earlier today.

I'm a big fan of the art that appeared on the cover of the Japanese version of the game, so I had my fingers crossed that Nintendo's American arm would use it as well.

As you can see in the image below, all of my finger-crossing was for naught.

The Japanese box cover is on the left, while the American box cover is on the right.

Do I still wish Nintendo of America had used the art that appeared on the Japanese version of the game? Sure, but that doesn't mean I dislike the art it decided to use instead. In fact, I think I like both images equally at this point.

Anyway, enough of my vocal vomiting--which piece of cover art do you prefer?

The first is more character-centric. The second is more action-packed. I like them both for their respective audiences.

Me, too! The only thing I don't like about the NA cover art is that the logo is squished at the top. I guess the designers didn't have much choice, though.
