For as much as some of us passionately argue over minor issues, game companies sure do like having us vote on things. Nintendo is allowing you to decide what the reversible box art for Xenoblade Chronicles' North American release should be, assuming you aren't allergic to Facebook.
I'm fond of the first image -- the one with the party gazing off into the distance. It reminds me of the concept art for an SNES-era role-playing game. Almost reminiscent of something you'd come across in a strategy guide. I also have a weakness for star-filled skies, so the fourth image makes this a tough call.
What box art did you vote for?
