Let's Play: 'Which Box Art is Better?' (Scribblenauts edition)

North American gamers with a penchant for puzzlers should be well aware of the following piece of art, which graced the cover of 5th Cell's Scribblenauts when it arrived on store shelves late last year.

When the game finally hits the streets in Japan early next year, it'll feature not just a revamped title--Hirameki Puzzle Maxwell no Fushigi na Note--but revamped cover art (below) as well.

As nice as the North American art is, I much prefer its Japanese counterpart--which, in my opinion, is both cuter and more creative than the original.

What do you guys and gals think?

BTW, rest assure that I won't write any more "Which Box Art is Better?" posts this week :)

The Japanese art is most definitely better! I can't believe they haven't gotten their hands on this amazing game yet!

I'm guessing it's taken so long because it was developed by an American company. Anyway, it'll be interesting to see if they like it as much as we have!

Right...and it's all about words, so the translation would have taken AGES. I just didn't realize it had been THIS long.
