Star Ocean 4 International Embraces Anime

The PS3 release of ero-RPG Star Ocean 4 has opted to utilise some strange cartoon-like illustrations for its cover, a reversal of its previous decision to downplay such designs in favour of generic sci-fi starscapes and CG characters.

The US PS3 version ushers in some unfamiliar Chinese cartoons:

us-ps3

As does the Japanese PS3 version:

japan-ps3

Europeans still get the Square treatment:

eu-ps3

The US Xbox 360 version:

us-360

The EU Xbox 360 version:

eu-360

The Japanese Xbox 360 version:

japan-360

Perhaps publishers are beginning to see anime designs are not such a liability after all?

The very multi-lingual Star Ocean 4 International is due for release in February.
