Let's play: 'Which box art is better?' (The 4 Heroes of Light edition)

Yesterday, the folks at Square-Enix announced that they'll be bringing Hikari no Yon Senshi: Final Fantasy Gaiden to Europe and North America later this year (Europeans will get it "this fall," while North Americans will get it on Oct. 5) as Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light.

So far, they've only released the cover art that will appear on the European version of the game, but I think that's enough to play another round of "Which box art is better?"--don't you?

Here's the art that appeared on the cover of the Japanese version of the game:

And here's the art that will appear on the European (and possibly the North American) version of the game:

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of either version's box art this time around. Although I like the composition of and the font used on the Japanese cover, the art itself is rather unappealing. Flip things around a bit and you have my opinion of the European cover--I like the art, but I'm unimpressed with the composition and the font.

Which cover do you prefer?

Oh man, I don't like either of these at all. I guess I'll go with the Japanese version because it seems less empty and, simply by way of having a blue sky, more colorful than its European counterpart.

I have a feeling a lot of people are going to agree with you, IvaNEC...
