Lost in Translation? Cover art differences in Japan


We all know that Japanese artwork often differs when a game is released in the USA or Europe. Final Fantasy X shows off Tidus and the water sword instead of just the logo. While most cover art articles look at how things change for a US audience Hardcore gaming has a unique piece where they examine how the artwork differs for titles made outside of Japan. The writer points out that Sudeki gets an anime cover and Ratchet looses the CG rendered look for a more cartoon-like appearance.
