L.A. Noire Box Art Evokes Los Angeles, Film Noir

Not to blow your mind or anything, but the newly revealed box art for Rockstar's upcoming detective story appears specifically designed to show off both the title's grittiness and the unique style of the booming City of Angels during the 1940s.

I know that companies can't use any ESRB logo other than the "RP" that's on the box until the title is formally done with the ESRB rating process, but I still find the concept that a Rockstar game about murder would be anything but "Mature" rated hilarious.

L.A. Noire uses breakthrough facial animation technology to feature unprecedented humanlike faces. The gameplay is built around investigating a series of crimes by finding clues, interviewing witnesses, and putting together a case that will hang together in front of a jury.

L.A. Noire releases for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 17.
