Does Dragon’s Crown’s Japanese Box Art Offend You?

I wonder if this Japanese Dragon’s Crown box art will stir up a mess of controversy. In addition to the Japanese box art, Atlus has today also shared the cover artwork of the art-book that will be included as a bonus for early purchasers of the Vanillaware developed 2D action game. In Japan, that is.┬áSince the enormous bosom of the sorceress and the incredibly thick thighs and buttocks of the amazon are pretty much hidden, I don’t think this box art will offend anyone.

Then again, video game press is pretty sensitive nowadays, so I can’t be sure.

Dragon’s Crown will be available for the PS3 and PS Vita in Japan on July 25th. It’ll be available in North America on August 6th. Hopefully that art-book is offered in North America and Europe as a pre-order bonus or something. Japan always gets the coolest bonuses. View the art below.

    Maybe now they’ll say it’s sexist because there’s a man in the middle and the ladies are put on the sides :D
