This looks cute, but what the heck is it?
An Atlus title so you're required to buy it if you want to stay on GAF. True story.

I don't get it, developers complain about costs, but they change the box art from region to region. They would save money by using the same box art in each region.

Even if this particular Atlus title looks like a poor dungeon hacker. Writing seems pretty snappy though so it may be worth the trouble for that.
Shh.

It drives me nuts to see art go from this....


To this.....


Kind of like ICO. Such a beautiful game with such a god awful box cover. It even turns you off but the US version kind of fits the game more. Wish Room....but a picture of a car on highway out in the middle of no where?

The Hotel Dusk cover would be fine if it wasn't for the terrible typography.

This is the best they could do?
They're basically exactly the same as the Japanese versions, except the text isn't covering any of the monsters' bodies.

Edit: However I do agree that they're severely lacking.

It's been a long time since we had a "New JAP box art thread"!

I can't create new threads but have a few Jap box arts that haven't been posted here so somebody please make one :)
