'Final Fantasy XV' Latest News & Update: Square Enix Confirms Reversible Box Art

By Joe Marsalis , Updated Jul 15, 2016 02:20 AM EDT

GameSpot previously reported a rumor that "Final Fantasy XV"'s box art would be reversible for the North American version of the game, but it's only yesterday developer and publisher Square Enix confirmed the dirt.

So, yes, it's true—if you're not feeling "Final Fantasy XV"'s movie poster cover, you can change it, if the box art really matters to you.

On the default North American cover, you can see the "Final Fantasy XV" cast (the very Latin-sounding yet J-pop looking Gladiolus Amicitia, Noctis Lucis Caelum, Ignis Scientia and Prompto Argentum) adventuring outside. If you prefer a more minimal look, you can opt to change to the other side of the art, going for a simple and clean look with just the "Final Fantasy XV" logo—and traditional stylistic artwork that usually accompanies a "Final Fantasy" logo.

And then "Final Fantasy XV" also has a third cover variant, illustrated by longtime series designer and artist Yoshitaka Amano, that's only available if you get the Deluxe Edition of the game, as reported by GameSpot. The Deluxe Edition is a bundle of freebies, including a DVD of "Kingsglaive," the CG movie that's also set in the universe of "Final Fantasy XV" and is meant to be a companion piece to the game's story.

Meanwhile, the Japanese version of "Final Fantasy XV" also has its own unique cover art, although this doesn't seem to be reversible.

"Final Fantasy XV," the latest game that's set to reimagine how the RPG genre and the "Final Fantasy" franchise plays, is scheduled for release on September 30 later this year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, although a version for PC might be a possibility—one that Square Enix is still considering. We'll let you know if we find out any new updates on a PC release.
