Lightning's Thigh Graces UK Cover Of Final Fantasy XIII

Update: Well, it seems this will be the box art for North America, too, so...better get used to it.  This is supposedly "official," but we're not saying it's 100% just yet.

Original Story:

Okay, so many of you weren't the biggest fans of the rumored finalized box art for the Japanese version of Final Fantasy XIII. But maybe you'll like this better.

As revealed by Joystiq, this is apparently the FFXIII box art that will be seen on store shelves in the UK. This one still features the main character, Lightning, but unlike the Japanese version, she isn't riding her My Little Pony. Recent studies and surveys have found that box art is crucial to eventual sales success, although we get the feeling that FF fans will buy this one regardless of the picture on the case. Now, the only other notable aspect of this design is that Lightning seems to be a bit more...erm...revealed than past FF characters. She's showing a great deal of thigh on that box and while that's not necessarily surprising in the world of video games, it is a little surprising in the Final Fantasy universe. We can all remember Tifa's rack and Rikku's shedding of her Al-Bhed uniform, but for the most part, Square-Enix hasn't placed T&A in the limelight for their flagship franchise. It can be found, surely, but on the box itself...?

We'll have to see how the fans respond but seriously, I'd rather not see my fellow FF aficionados getting all indignant because of a little thigh. Let's not waste time focusing on it, okay? The game's gonna rule.

OUTRAGE AND HATRED!!!

Really would anyone respond this way? I mean the industry is starting to slowly but surely be recognized as an adult industry as well as one for kids so when games that are more geared towards adults show a bit o' thigh then what is really the issue. I mean PG-13 movie posters have been known to have more provocative depictions so let's all just accept that times they are a-changing.

I noticed that. I think it has more to do with the target audience. Perhaps the broader more family based PS3 audience encourages a slightly less racey version of the cover art compared to the 360?

it's because as Oxvial said, a better angle. the ps3 box IS shorter than the xbox box and its possible that square didn't care if they 'minimized' or 'cropped' the picture to make it accurate.

This definetly better than her riding her little pony. It will be interesting to see how SE does the NA box art, will they stick to how they did FFXII or will they go back to how they did FFX?

Ben is right though let's not get in a tissy here thigh is niether T nor A, although it does start with a T and is connected to the A. This game is gonna kick A, hopefully.

your still stuck on that? Have you seen Die Hard? Or any other movie for that matter? The game portraying that is even more far fetched than movies.

anyways this is not about MW2 this is about FF and theres nothing wrong with this cover at all. in fact i believe many tomb raider games showed Lara Croft this way as well. And on Heavenly Swords cover theres a lot more body shown! LEAVE IT BE!

I feel ashamed to say I don't know anyone who gets talked about as characters in this game. For those that don't know I have never played any single one now thats bad enough but considering there have been what 12 releases so far how did I miss them ? I must have been asleep or something.

Well, I think SE threw the rulebook out the window concerning flesh when they made FFX-2. I was very disappointed when they covered Tifa's rack in Advent Children, what a waste...

Anyway, I hope I like Lightning's character. I'm usually not too partial to tomboys but we'll see.

As a graphic artist I must say this isn't the best. I expected a more concepty-arty look. Like with FFXII, we have Vaan,Balthier & co in some artwork on the cover. Same with Uncharted 2, we have Nate kinda sketched on the cover. This Lightning chic is too rendered against a flat white background.

Its still cool all the same. And oh, don't tell me is all about what's on the disc, am an artist so allow me to scrutinize.

This cover's based off a wallpaper that can be found on the official FF13 site (Japan), which is my avatar at the moment. I don't see what all the big hoohah is about Lightning's Thigh.

Although, some may now realize the reason why I know and downloaded that particular wallpaper...lol

Stilll don't like the cover. Where the hell is the background all previous FF games had. FF 10 had an awesome boxart with Tidus standing in the ocean and the glory of the background.

Put a background on that box, square-enix, it will make a huge difference.

I've got to say, box art has never once influenced my purchase of a game in either direction. It's what is inside the box that matters to me. Sure, it's nice to look at, and some are better than others, but I don't spend $60 to hold the box in my hand and critique the cover art.

They're secretly working on a Kingdom Hearts title that will be released alongside GoW3 on April 1st. They are going to make a grand-scaled announcement March 31st at 11:59pm. I just know it! Hehe...if only...where did Kingdom Hearts drift off too? (sniff) I can just imagine it as a PS3 exclusive, it would single-handedly convert X-box owners over to the system that "only does everything"(They should already have converted due to all our great exclusives and cool features such as bluray, free online play, on top of batteryless controllers though). But this will be the cherry on top.

i have to say, this time, both the US and Jap version boxart is ugly, i mean, look at it, it has nothing, but just a person holding a sword, ff13 is supposed to be the best jrpg of this gen, an character with a sword, and nothing else, could there be any more lazier than this? where is the art, there is no art for this cover.

usually the Jap. version box art is better, but this time, not so much better either, just the character rideing a horse, there is no fine arts in the background. huge disppointed, by looking at the cover, there is no feeling of a classic.

look at the Demon's Souls Deluxe edition or the Jap. version cover, give u a dark, mysterious and fine art feeling. nothing is shown here.

Why are all of you whining about box-art. I think it is normal. I have FF7 and 9 PAL versions, and you know what is on those box-art? Nothing, only Final Fantasy name on a white background. And PS2 PAL platinum versions have the same look and i think it is better than some picture. Becasue if you see Final Fantasy it is must buy and no picture will help to buy it, only for beginners who never played the series. Annd for Xbox360 box-art, I think it is commercial trick, becasuse how many only xbox360 owners are FF fans, I think it is very small group and because of that square decided thaht xbox box-art must be more atrractive or simple it must be sexier to attract more audience, because most of them donĀ“t know what is FF. And I belive that most of PS3 owners know what is FF series and square do not worries about PS3 version sales. I belive that Xbox360 version will not be so succseful like PS3 version.

You know, I could complain about this being a crappy-looking cover, BUT I'm just happy to see Square Enix actually bringing something out on the PS3.

The sheer fact that we are happy something is finally coming to the ps3 from square takes all that happiness away. They screwed us up to this point in this gen. Sell outs.

I don't like it (much).
Why not use the simpler approach?

I couldn't care less about the thigh. The cover from a graphic design standpoint sucks. They've done better.
