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

Did you get your fill of Style Savvy cover art last week when I devoted a "Which Box Art is Better Post?" to the just-released Style Savvy: Trendsetters and its international counterparts?

I hope not, as you're going to get a bit more of it today.

This time around, though, we're going to check out the box art that was created for the original Style Savvy.

Here's the "art" (yes, I'm using the word loosely in this case) that appeared on covers of the North American version of the game, which hit store shelves in late 2009:


Sadly, the art made for the game's European packaging, below, isn't much better. In fact, I think it could easily be said that it's worse than the North American version's box art.


So, how does the box art of the Japanese original, Wagamama Fashion Girls Mode, stack up? Pretty well, if you ask me.


Sure, it features far too much text, but at least that text is nicely stylized and colored.

As such, I'm personally giving Wagamama Fashion Girls Mode's box art the nod this time around. That's just my opinion, though; which cover do you like best?

That Japanese art freaks me out. Her head looks like it's completely mismatched to her body. It's just not pretty. Honestly, I'd pick the Euro art above the rest. I love a good shoe, though!

At least the Japanese one doesn't have the girl bending down to pick up an invisible object! I approve.

I really, really dislike the EU cover... I see it all the time here, and just can't bring myself to buy it. Anything but that!

Yeah, I can see where the Japanese art could seem a bit creepy, Justin -- or at least the girl's big ol' head.

Ha ha! I like the way you think, Anne :) Also, I'm not the biggest fan of the Euro box art either. It's just so ... boring.
