Say hello to fellow Earthlings and welcome another edition of Box Art Brawl!
In a spectacular battle to commemorate the 100th post of the Box Art Brawl last week, I saw Super Smash Bros. Melee, a stunning GameCube brawler. This is arguably one of the most iconic Nintendo games to date, so of course, such a beloved title was a perfect fit for the BoxArt Brawl milestone.
The results were closer to honesty than we expected, but your lovely people still decided that North American and European box art would win the crown and a significant 61% vote. Did. That said, the sepia toning and killer logo design attracted many fans, and many showed a strong attachment to Japanese box art.
A little this week Final Fantasy Being expensive, compare the Japanese box art in FINAL FANTASY VI with the US equivalent. Now, those who “know” will, of course, notice that FINAL FANTASY VI has been released in the United States. FINAL FANTASY IIIFinal Fantasy II, III, and V due to the fact that they were not previously released in this area.
As a bonus, take a peek at GBA’s FINAL FANTASY VI Advance box art to see how it stacks, but keep in mind that this release doesn’t form part of the bottom vote. It’s for SNES games only!
Now let’s start cracking!
Please be sure to vote for the following votes. But first, let’s check the box art design itself.
Well, yes … FINAL FANTASY III. Or FINAL FANTASY VI. Man, this is confusing! In fact, it’s not, ignore us.The box art here actually reminds us a little The Legend of Zelda, Instead of the letter “T”, the sword forms part of the game logo. You can see the comparison, right?
Overall it’s a pretty nice and unobtrusive composition, not to mention the adorable Moogle just laid back near the bottom corner-too cute!It’s very different from Japanese box art, no difference very It fits the general visual theme the series has done over the years, but we still like it!
Well, the Japanese box art of FINAL FANTASY VI very FINAL FANTASY, if you get what we mean. This series maintains the same logo style to this day for good reason.It’s just Iconic.. Similarly, Yoshitaka Amano’s artwork is beautiful-and has always been. You just shout Final Fantasy, right?
I strongly feel that Japanese box art will win this week, but as we all know, many people seem to love the Moogle, so North America could sneak into the victory!
Bonus-FINAL FANTASY VI Advance
Yes, I told you to take a look at FINAL FANTASY VI Advance’s box art, but it’s here! It has much in common with Japanese SNES box art and maintains a consistent visual theme for the series in both logo and cover design. I love how modest this design is. You probably won’t see anything like that in this era. Indeed, Square Enix itself is moving further into a more “traditional” cover design with the following: FINAL FANTASY VII Remake When FINAL FANTASY XV..
So you have it! We enjoyed this simply because of the dramatic difference between NA and Japanese box art. Well, if anyone at Square Enix or Nintendo sees this … Bring FINAL FANTASY VI to Switch. Thank you M’kay.
Be sure to adjust next week to find the results of this epic match!
Thank you for voting! See you next time in the next round of the Box Art Brawl.
