Fairy Tail's JP game boxart (Update: Placeholders)

Edit: it's a placeholder (thanks Mandos!):






Thought folks would want to see this. Both are from their Amazon JP pages. Looks like they more or less just slapped the existing game artwork together. A far cry from the pretty awesome-looking Attack on Titan boxes of theirs.

Thoughts?

There’s a disclaimer on the page apparently saying these are placeholders and that the series creator is doing original art for the cover

Oh. That's certainly better. :P Why put this up at all though? Bizarre when folks are accustomed to just seeing blanks with the game's logo as a fitting placeholder.

Disregard then I guess! :P

Those renders are terrible
Probably cause those are the character keyarts from the official sites. Also from the official website

Sample only. Package art will be updated with Hiro Mashima's exclusive illustration for the game.
Which makes sense as Hiro has been involved for all of game development

It is they have a disclaimer on the official site saying so. Plus he’s been involved during the games entire development on an advising and feedback role as a regular gamer on top of it so it’d be odd if he didn’t
Lol shit, the one thing I missed while skimming the thread. I'm just too used to these sort of license anime games only using the anime style artwork and not the original artists.
