Final Fantasy XIII-2 US Cover Art Appears, Looks Lightninglicious.

Square Enix released today the cover art of the North American version of Final Fantasy XIII-2 for both platforms (PS3 and Xbox 360).

Both covers feature Lightning in her new lovely armor in a rather plastic pose, and while it isn’t art by Yoshitaka Amano, it’s still a great looking piece of artwork.

Some may argue that since Noel and Serah are the true protagonists of this sequel, this cover isn’t exactly the most appropriate choice, but it does look really good, and the task of a cover art is mostly to be catchy on a shelf. I would say that this one does its job  nicely.

You can check both versions beyond the cut.
