Greetings fellow Earthlings, and welcome to a different version of Field Artwork Brawl!
In final week’s epic battle to commemorate our one centesimal Field Artwork Brawl put up, we took a have a look at the exceptional GameCube brawler, Tremendous Smash Bros. Melee. It is one of the crucial iconic Nintendo video games of all time, with out query, so naturally such a beloved title was the proper match for our Field Artwork Brawl milestone.
The outcomes have been truthfully a lot nearer than we would anticipated, however nonetheless you pretty individuals determined that the field artwork for North America and Europe ought to take the crown, pulling in a good 61% of the vote. Having mentioned that, a lot of you demonstrated a eager fondness for the Japanese field artwork, with its sepia tones and killer brand design profitable over many followers.
This week, we’re on a little bit of a Last Fantasy excessive, so we’ll going to be pitting the Japanese field artwork for Last Fantasy VI towards its US equal. Now, these amongst you who’re “within the know” will pay attention to course that Last Fantasy VI launched within the US as Last Fantasy III, owing to the truth that Last Fantasy II, III, and V had not beforehand been launched within the area.
As a bonus, we’ll additionally take a peek on the field artwork for Last Fantasy VI Advance for the GBA and see the way it stacks up, however needless to say this launch will not kind a part of the ballot on the backside; that is reserved for the SNES video games solely!
So with that every one mentioned, let’s get cracking!
Remember to solid your votes within the ballot beneath; however first, let’s try the field artwork designs themselves.
Okay, so… Last Fantasy III. Or Last Fantasy VI. Man, that is complicated! Really, it is not, ignore us. The field artwork right here truly reminds us a little bit of The Legend of Zelda, with the sword forming a part of the sport’s brand instead of the letter ‘T’. You see the comparability, proper?
It is a fairly good, understated composition total, and naturally we won’t not point out the lovely Moogle simply chilling on the market close to the underside nook – too cute! It is wildly completely different to the Japanese field artwork and would not fairly slot in with the overall visible theme that the sequence has gone for over time, however we prefer it regardless!
Proper, so the Japanese field artwork for Last Fantasy VI is very Last Fantasy, for those who get what we imply. The sequence has maintained the identical brand model to this very day for a great motive; it is merely iconic. Equally, the paintings by Yoshitaka Amano is gorgeous – because it’s at all times been and at all times will probably be. It simply screams Last Fantasy, proper?
We have got a powerful feeling the Japanese field artwork will come away with the win this week, however who is aware of, a substantial amount of individuals appear to like the Moogles, so there’s each likelihood that North America might sneak in with the win!
Bonus – Last Fantasy VI Advance
Sure, we mentioned we would check out the field artwork for Last Fantasy VI Advance, and right here it’s! It is acquired much more in frequent with Japan’s SNES field artwork and maintains the sequence’ constant visible theme with each its brand and canopy design. We love how understated this design is; you in all probability would not see something prefer it nowadays. Certainly, Sq. Enix itself is transferring additional into extra “conventional” cowl designs with the likes of Last Fantasy VII Remake and Last Fantasy XV.
So there you’ve got it! We had enjoyable with this one easy as a result of drastic variations between the NA and Japanese field arts. Now, if somebody at Sq. Enix or Nintendo sees this… Please carry Last Fantasy VI to the Change. M’kay, thanks.
Be sure you tune in subsequent week to seek out out the outcomes of this epic bout!
