Full disclosure: I know next to nothing about Biohazard/Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.
Oh, I've seen all of the trailers Capcom has released for it, but other than that I can't say I know much about this upcoming 3DS release and how it differs from, say, Biohazard/Resident Evil 5 or any other entry in the series.
So why am I publishing this post about the game? Because the art that will grace the cover of the Japanese version of the game (release date: June 2) differs quite a bit from the art that will grace the cover of its North American counterpart (June 28), that's why.
Speaking of which, here's the Japanese box art:
And here's the North American box art:
Although the latter is suitably dramatic and surely will appeal to North American gamers, I prefer the former's more subtle approach to the subject matter.
Which one do you prefer?
