Dark Souls II comes out in Japan on the same week Namco Bandai will release the game in North America and Europe. Just like Dark Souls before it, FromSoftware will self-publish Dark Souls II in Japan and they designed different box art for the Japanese version.


Here’s another look at Dark Souls II red phantoms and all.

    Aaaaa it looks so much nicer than what we get. Just another dude slowly walking.

  • Ninastars

    I wish we got those nice atmospheric covers for Souls that Japan always gets. But I suppose character-focused covers are more marketable in the west if a bit boring.

  • Gregor

    Much better cover, more… ominous.

  • kazdamaz

    Japan gets the superior box art again. While we get the overused stride into the battlefield thing…

  • MrRobbyM

    I hope we can get Japan’s cover as a reversible.

  • dahuuuundge

    Once again Japan has the better cover. Meanwhile we get slumped armor dude facing away from camera instead of towards camera.

    On the bright side, at least the US cover for DkS II is a step up from the US cover for DkS. The JPN cover does give a better sense of hopelessness though and thus fits the theme of the game a lot more. Most western game covers are more about empowering the player while being character focused rather than establishing the mood and atmosphere of the game itself. When it comes to conveying a game overall, I always preferred the latter.
