Streets of Philadelphia
The seemingly never-ending off-season saga involving right fielder Bryce Harper has concluded, and that means MLB The Show 19 has a cover. The bearded batsman can be seen in his new Philadelphia Phillies uniform, pouting at the camera. Previously, developer Sony San Diego had been forced to use placeholder artwork of the...
Ronaldo removed from cover
Europe’s premier club competition the Champions League resumes next week, and FIFA 19 has been given a facelift to celebrate. However, the soccer simulation will move forward without Cristiano Ronaldo on its cover, as the Juventus striker’s been replaced by an image of Brazilian forward Neymar, who’s flanked by Kevin...
Will Ronda Rousey voice Sonya?
This is Mortal Kombat 11’s box art – it looks like Mortal Kombat box art. You expected more from this article? Well, what do you want us to say? It’s got Scorpion on it. It’s yellow. It says Mortal Kombat 11 on it. It’s got the guy from The 1975’s tattoo in the background, which is a bit weird, but maybe Ed...
The world will come for you
In the age of ‘Angry White Man Walking Away from the Camera Clutching a Pistol’, we kinda like this Days Gone cover, which is a little bit different. It’s based on the key art that developer Sony Bend released earlier in the year, and shows elaborately named protagonist Deacon St. John propped up by his motorcycle,...
A right royal reveal
You’ve seen the brand new trailer and screenshots, but now it’s time to feast your eyes on Kingdom Hearts III’s fantastic PlayStation 4 box art. Sketched by series director Tetsuya Nomura himself, the image shows key characters like Sora, Mickey Mouse, and Donald Duck. Love or loathe the franchise, it’s hard to deny that...
Ogle some new screenshots
Vincent looks like he’s going to have his hands full in Catherine: Full Body – and potentially his mouth, too. With pre-orders going live for the expanded PlayStation 3 puzzler in Japan, creator Atlus has released the box art for the re-release, showing the protagonist surrounded by a trio of buxom babes. The game’s...
Collector's Edition also announced
Resident Evil 2, the anticipated survival horror remake announced just weeks ago at E3 2018, hosted a prominent panel at San Diego Comic Con earlier today, where Capcom revealed the box art for the title. The image, which shows protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield standing back-to-back, is clearly...
It's usually around this stage in the generation that box art gets completely murdered by superfluous logos, and between PlayStation VR and the new PlayStation 4 Pro, the Japanese giant is planning to make a right old mess. Games Radar reports that titles enhanced by Sony's new hardware – which should, we must stress, end up being all of...
Brock Lesnar is WWE 2K17's cover star. We'll refrain from making disparaging remarks because he could probably kill us with his little finger, but we have got to commentate on the sword that's tattooed on his torso, resting between his rock-like pectorals like Excalibur in Arthurian legend. Judging by the box art, he also appears to be...
He came from France
As is the case almost every year, you can vote for the face of FIFA 17 right now. Fortunately, Liverpool's bargain bin Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, is not in the running this year – with Real Madrid's James Rodriguez, Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus, Chelsea's Eden Hazard, and Manchester United's Anthony Martial in the...
Towards the tail of the generation, PlayStation 3 box art got really bad. You'd have the PS3 logo, the PlayStation Network logo, the 'Only on PlayStation' logo, the PlayStation Move logo, and more. Just take a look at the state of this Need for Speed Most Wanted cover if you want a particularly egregious example. With the PlayStation 4, the...
It's unquestionably going to be a masterpiece, but much like the US version of ICO, there's a big question mark hanging over The Last Guardian's box art. We actually rather like the image that's been selected – it looks especially tasty on the title's steelbook – but the bog standard release has been buggered up by the additi
Brave new world
Horizon: Zero Dawn's new trailer may be a bit on the cheesy side, but there's no denying that the game's a visual tour-de-force. Part of that, of course, stems from Guerrilla Games' technical prowess – but the art direction is also a very obvious highlight as well. It's no surprise to see the title score some stunning box art,...
Here we bloody go
Phwoar, the hype meter's off the charts here at Push Square thanks to a relatively blurry image obtained by NeoGAF - isn't that always the way? The image - as you may have guessed - is the box art for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's second and final expansion, Blood and Wine. It features main character Geralt looking rather regal, while...
One for the shelf
It always seemed certain that No Man's Sky would receive a retail release, but Sony confirmed as much this week, stating that the ambitious outing will be available on Blu-ray in Europe and North America. However, if we're going to point out bad box art – DOOM's atrocious artwork immediately springs to mind – then we should...
And, for once, the Internet is right
In concept, DOOM couldn't possibly appeal less to this author's tastes. For starters, it's more heavy metal than the doodles on a teenage misfit's pencil case, but it's also one of those games where the shooting's only ever going to be the draw – we're not expecting anything in the way of story at all. Despite...
Sony's preparing a boxed bundle of Quantic Dream games in March, meaning that you'll be able to get your David Cage fix in full on the PlayStation 4. The package includes the recently released Beyond: Two Souls port, as well as the upcoming Heavy Rain remaster. Agent Norman Jayden FBI's taken to bouncing a ball against a virtual wall...
It is known
Console makers love to make it known when a game is exclusive to their system, but the 'Only on PlayStation' branding that Sony usually employs doesn't suit every single piece of software. Street Fighter V is an example of a release that will never deploy on the Xbox One, but it is coming to the PC, so it's technically available...
You didn't think that the gorgeous golden Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection cover was going to last, did you? Perhaps realising that the original box art didn't quite capture the "SUCH VALUE! MUCH QUALITY!" nature of the compilation, SCEE has re-packaged the title in Europe with a garbage front flaunting the fact that you get...
Cheap and cheerful
Dragon Quest Builders is going to sell a frightening number of copies in Japan when it launches early next year on every viable PlayStation platform, but its box art is a bit rubbish. Gematsu spotted the artwork on a Japanese product page, which sports a mixture of awesome main character sketches and a ClipArt-esque villain. It...
The bad, the ugly, and the beautifully bad
Box art today is not usually all that interesting. You go to the shop to pick up your copy of Call of Battlefield: War with Guns and the cover art is usually a grizzled white guy walking away from the camera, surrounded with brown and more brown – well, unless you're Battlefield, which uses nothing but...
Such a rush
Gravity Rush – also known as Gravity Daze in Japan – is one of the most underappreciated properties on PlayStation, but Sony's giving protagonist Kat another bite of the apple with a PlayStation 4 version of the Vita original. The title – which is due out later this year in Japan and next February in the West – is being developed...
We're running out of time, folks. In mere hours Push Square's offices will have been thrown into pure madness. This year's E3 is looking to be especially busy, with developers increasingly keen on releasing snippets of news earlier than they're supposed to. Thanks a lot, guys. Seriously, though, E3 is keeping us pretty busy right now...
A sure-fire plan
You may not be able to play Uncharted 4: A Thief's End until next year, but you can look at its box art. IGN spotted the cover on an Amazon product listing, and it looks pretty legit to us. Of course, the downside is that we've seen the image before – but who could ever tire of protagonist Nathan Drake's immaculately
A boy and his blob
Square Enix appears to have accidentally outed the box art for – inhale – Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below. Eagle-eyed gamers picked up on the pack shot on the publisher's official store, which has now been pulled. There was also mention of the title's 13th October release
Gun to go
Call of Duty: Black Ops III's pack shot will pay homage to its predecessors – despite the fact that its seemingly ditching the Cold War for, er, advanced warfare. The cover – which has leaked onto Reddit ahead of the release's big weekend reveal – shows a suited soldier equipped with all kinds of technical wizardry sitting slumped in...
Are you depressed yet?
Naughty Dog's promised that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will be your typical Hollywood romp, but the title's definitely showing its darker side in this potential PlayStation 4 box art. The eagle eyed folks over at DualShockers spotted a file in SCEA's press bank named 'Pack Art Final', which shows protagonist Nathan Drake...
It'd truly be a wonderful world
If you’re anything like this editor, you’ll have fond memories of ClipArt. Decorating school reports with dodgy pictures was a real highlight of this writer’s formative years, and we suspect that it was the same for many of you. Still, now that we’re older and wiser, the Microsoft Office accessory has kind of...
Game covers always show off their biggest stars, and WWE 2K15 is no exception, with John Cena taking pride of place on the latest pack shot. Having just re-claimed the World Heavyweight Championship at the latest Pay-Per-View, he took no time in snapping up this photo opportunity to celebrate his reign. And the latest release is shaping...
Who said that all games are brown and grey these days? Sony’s set to liberate vibrant PlayStation Vita exclusive Freedom Wars on 26th June in Japan, and that means that firm details regarding the co-operative release are starting to trickle out of the platform holder’s penitentiary. That includes the title’s official cover art,...
More's the pity
With the PlayStation 4’s launch in Japan now fast approaching, publishers are beginning to reveal the cover art for their release day wares. One such box that slipped through our news net late last year is this one for Yakuza Ishin, which bucks the series’ Eastern trend by adopting a full colour image. Pretty neat, huh? Despite...
Taste the rainbow
Japan always gets better box art than Europe and North America, and the PlayStation 4’s colourful packaging is no exception to the rule. While the international wrapper has an air of royal class to it, the Eastern edition is just plain fun. It includes an oversized image of Knack on the front, and a rainbow pattern equivalent...
Got you covered
Bungie has promised to release a brand new trailer for its upcoming shoot-and-loot outing Destiny – but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow in order to watch it in full. To make up for the miniscule delay, the former Halo developer has deployed the first-person shooter’s official box art, which shows the title’s three main...
Kazunori Yamauchi hasn't quite decided
Polyphony Digital has already admitted that it has a PlayStation 4 version of upcoming racing simulator Gran Turismo 6 in mind, but it may have evolved into a full sequel by the time that it parks onto the next generation platform. Speaking as part of a panel at GamesCom this week, obsessive creat
Box art also crosses the finish line
You may be hoping that Sony turns the ignition on some new PlayStation 4 titles this week, but the platform holder has also promised to provide some updates on the system’s existing lineup. That’s started this afternoon with the confirmation of DriveClub’s pre-order bonuses. If you register your interest in...
Good and evil
It may not be quite as eye-catching as that incredible inkblot mock-up, but we’re still rather fond of Killzone: Shadow Fall’s official box art. The package demonstrates the divide between the ISA and the Helghast, and even incorporates the shape of the leather fastener on the redesigned antagonists’ masks. Interestingly, it...
A picture paints a thousand words
Could the box art for Saints Row IV possibly be any more perfect? It shows an image of the President of the United States – that’s you, by the way – sitting in a swish armchair in what appears to be the Oval Office, while a couple of gun-toting girls in pencil skirts point submachine guns at a giant energy...
Arguably the most exciting element of a major hardware launch are the minor details that accompany it: the startup sequence, the user interface, and the boxes. Sony’s yet to confirm exactly what form the PlayStation 4’s cases will adopt, but in traditional fashion, graphic designers around the globe have been making some exciting...
Leaked box art seems legit
Call of Duty: Ghosts, the next title in Activision’s blockbuster first-person series, is supposedly set to step out of the shadows on 5th November. At least, that’s according to a Target pamphlet, which is promoting the fact that the North American retailer is currently taking pre-orders for the unannounced game. We...
Makes a change from big guns
We’ve all had the occasional bad day, but they’re a regular occurrence for Beyond: Two Souls protagonist Jodie Holmes. Spiritually linked to an on-off psychopath, the character finds herself pursued by the government and living rough on the streets. No wonder she’s looking extremely gloomy on the title’s pack...
Dark Souls 2’s box art is about as morbidly bleak as you’d expect from a game that thinks constantly coaxing you into unexpected death-traps is entertainment. The cover – which popped up on All Games Beta earlier today – depicts a sword-wielding warrior with his back turned. We’re going to assume that he wasn’t in the mood...
No surprises here
If you’ve been carefully following the construction of the Grand Theft Auto V mural currently being erected in New York City, then you’ll no doubt be delighted to get your first full look at the title’s box art to the right. Unsurprisingly, it follows the franchise’s familiar tiled format, with all three of the game’s...
But the developer refused to back down
Beyond: Two Souls developer Quantic Dream was encouraged by marketing agencies to include a picture of protagonist Jodie Holmes – played by Ellen Page – holding a gun on the cover of its upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive in order to bolster sales. However, in an interview with GameSpot, executive producer...
Oh, and it's real
Unable to contain the secret any longer, Ubisoft has officially confirmed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The publisher sent us packshots for the pirate-themed adventure earlier this morning, confirming the game’s existence on PS3. As with previous entries, playing the title on Sony’s platform will reward you with an...
For all of Watch_Dogs’ promise of innovation, we’d have thought that the designers at Ubisoft would have managed to come up with a more interesting cover for the release. Alas, here’s a picture of protagonist Aiden Pearce pointing his gun at the title’s ESRB rating. Perhaps the character’s not happy with the enormous logo covering...
Hole in one
Not content with being brightest light on the circuit, landing a lucrative deal with Nike, and pulling women’s tennis pro Caroline Wozniacki, Rory McIlroy can now add appearing on the cover of a video game to his list of achievements. The Northern Irish hot shot will star on the front of the European edition of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14,...
A kind of magic
With the re-master’s Japanese release imminent, publisher Square Enix has revealed the box art for the wordy Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX. The pack shot leads with Sora, Donald Duck, and Goofy, while Riku and Mickey are relegated to the upper corners. Rumours of a Western release of the PlayStation 3 exclusive hit fever pitch...
Bringing it home
Don’t expect any hard hitting commentary in this story – we know as much about baseball as we do embroidery. Still, we daresay a handful of you will be delighted to discover that Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen has won MLB 13: The Show’s cover poll. The player garnered over 100,000 votes in the title’s...
Drawn to life
Regular readers will recall the brouhaha surrounding BioShock Infinite’s atrocious box art. After admitting that the cover was chosen as bait for frat boys, Irrational Games' gaffer Ken Levine also revealed that the developer would be producing an alternative image for players with more refined tastes. And here it is. The art was...
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’s international box art is great – but clearly publisher Konami was concerned that North American consumers wouldn't take to the close-up of protagonist Raiden’s robot face. As such, the company has produced a brand new image showing the aforementioned cyborg slicing an adversary in half. We suppose...
Fight for your right
Considering Ken Levine’s recent comments about BioShock Infinite’s box art, we were surprised by the cover for Naughty Dog’s upcoming The Last of Us. The image places teenage protagonist Ellie at the focal point of the product, while Joel observes from the background. It’s a bold move
Together in the dark
If this weekend’s incredible The Last of Us story trailer wasn’t enough to send you into a post-apocalyptic frenzy, developer Naughty Dog’s revealed a little more about the upcoming survival horror title. Posting on the PlayStation Blog, community strategist Arne Meyer not only confirmed the release's box a
