The final box art is out and the big thing is that the box art is different for each version and not just the usual "Two because the PS3 box is smaller" thing.  The PS3 box art features Vincent sliding into Catherine's cleavage:

While the X360 art has Vincent climbing over  Katherine's lower back:

I've got to say, I prefer the 360 art. Still getting it for PS3 though, that art is also sweet.
If it comes out in America.
And if it still has the same box art. I kind of doubt it will, for some reason. But I could be wrong.

Okay. If they're going to use that box art in North America, I'm going to have to lock up the box and make sure no one sees it.

If this is ever released outside of Japan my girlfriend will wonder what the fuck I'm buying. Not to mention feeling like a pervert in the store.

@CrazyChris: The EU and US box arts are probably going to be different.

I definitely prefer the PS3 box art here, she's not making the "I'm getting reamed in the ass right now and it sucks" face.

More or less exactly the vibe I was expecting from the Japanese box art.

Thankfully. I like the covers and all, but I'm worried the game would bomb in sales here in the west with those covers.

If I had to guess..  It's a typical anime plot about a socially awkward teen who is repeatedly placed in unlikely and erotic situations with attractive young females.

@mutha3:   I was basing that assumption on the box art and the two screenshots I saw.
Was I at least close?  ;)

Has there been any confirmation whether this game will be released outside of Japan? 
Because, if not, I'm really going to have to work hard during japanese class...

@mutha3: They would have trouble getting in stores with those covers, especially the 1st..  Now if Atlus only expects to move under 50K units, likely not to be a problem.  But if they want large numbers they likely need some retail space.

I don't think they're aiming for 50K seeing how its from the biggest team in Atlus and there's been a lot of anticipation from western fans.

No-the lead is in his his early 30s and is one of the women, the other is in her early 20s.  The situations are erotic and awkward but not in the way you think.  See he's caught cheating with on the early 20s girl by his girlfriend the early 30s women.  So yeah awkward..

Then you get the whole nightmare sheepworld part where he gets stuck with his pillow and has to escape buttmonsters, robot fetuses and demonic versions of the girlfriend  he knocked up.
 
Game of the Year, people.

Honestly, people saying this reallyneed to check out our wiki page on the game. We actually have a pretty good idea what the game will entail, now.

That's true, but Katherine > Catherine so I've got to say I prefer the 360 art anyways. 
 
The boxarts are a little too... explicit for the North American audience so I do hope they change it when it releases here, even though I personally have no problem with them.

Seriously. I would feel really creepy buying this game if the boxart stays the same.

You should probably order it from amazon. I plan to. Also, It says PSN on the PS3 box? is it coming out on PSN or what?

The leaked achievements revealed there's some weird -ass "VS mode"...so I guess Catherine actually has an online mode?
 
There's way more game in there then people have anticipated so far.

You really consider that a "burn" because I made a joke about a game and genre I obviously have no interest in?

I'm pretty sure he was joking as well
 
Actually, if I had to wager a guess, I'm pretty sure he's poking fun at me:(

Heh, wrap it in opaque foil. That'd be hilarious.

I really hope they have a reversible cover for the USA release like most anime today is shipped. That way, we could flip the cover art to a bit more racy or to the art they used in Japan.

I could see them changing the box art when the game comes to the States, even though I don't have a problem with it.  Anything even remotely erotic or sexual in a product puts the moral guardians here in a shitstorm even when they have no idea about the product.

I hope not, just the process of buying this game would be awkward.

Very interesting covers. The colors really jump out and would draw attention on a normal game shelf full of bland, dark, and colorless game covers.  
Too bad we'll never see that box art in America.

The box art is perfect for this game. I really don't want them to change it for international release, but they probably will. The names are starting to weird me out a little bit... my middle name is Kathryn. After my grandmother. And every time I hear it spoken it reminds me of my great-grandmother because she always called me Catherine (it was her middle name and she thought my parents named me after her....they didn't).  And I have two close childhood friends named Katherine/Katharine. TOO MANY KACATHERARIRYNS.
