Box art fail averted for Record of Agarest War in UK


We're getting the PSN download-only treatment for the upcoming strategy role-playing game Record of Agarest War, but the UK is getting a fully boxed title, just like Japan did. The issue here isn't about the delivery format, though. We're more concerned about the potential box art fail that could have came out of European publisher Ghostlight.

Their version of the game, retitled Agarest: Generations of War there, could have had been packaged with the box art on the left (above). Ha! Is that guy supposed to be the round-eye version of Leonhardt? You can see a better image the original Leonhardt in the gallery below. I mean, they're dressed mostly the same, but what's up with the hair and the face? Is that Leonhardt's child predator half-white American uncle cosplaying his nephew? How Mega Man-esque!

Thankfully, Ghostlight let fans pick the final design.
