Because if Nintendo likes using any colour for special edition Mario game cases, it just has to be red (see Super Mario All Stars for Wii and the New Super Mario Bros games for more examples). Still, it looks pretty nice, so keep reading if you want to see the full sized version…
It’s the European one if anyone is wondering (the original picture supposedly came from a Spanish language website about gaming), but damn, it’s certainly a lot more interesting than the bland Mario Kart Wii and 7 box designs. Want to see it at full size? Then keep reading!
Looks really cool too, as you can see from the post thumbnail. Indeed, the whole design has a rather nice ‘pseudo 3D’ effect you don’t see in most other 3DS game box arts, and it’s certainly more lively than your average art for any other game out at the moment.
As people likely know by now, I’ve always been someone who’s wondered about the brand confusion caused by the introduction of the 2DS system and its marketing. Indeed, quite a few months back, I even argued that Nintendo was going to cause significant confusion among customers by not marking 3DS games as being playable on the 2DS! But lo and behold, they’ve finally done it. They’ve now gone and officially added an ‘also for 2DS’ sticker to all 3DS game boxes. Keep reading to see for yourself…
In Europe anyway, and the box art shown on this post’s thumbnail will be the cover design. Either way, you don’t have too much longer left to wait for the game’s release, and the box art that everyone loved from before is now confirmed to be the real deal too.
With the game due out over there in early 2014, the official Japanese box art for Mario Party Island Tour has finally been released. But while the general layout is literally identical to the English one down to the very pixels its composed of, there seems to be one character who’s conspicuously missing from the cover.
It’s fairly unexpected given the complete lack of new information about the game recently, but Nintendo has now released some more screenshots of Kirby’s first 3DS game, Kirby Triple Deluxe! So head inside and read the full post to see them for yourself!
The game’s already got a great box art design as is, but now things get even better for those Zelda fans out there excited for this title, since the game will feature reversible cover art. So what’s on the other side? A non gold version of the traditional cover art, for those people who want the artwork without the gold tint added to it in various countries. This will be the case in European countries, as proven by how it’s Nintendo of Europe who released this new, with no word on whether the same will be true of the US release.
Just a day or so ago, we posted the box art for Super Mario 3D World. It was quite small, had pretty poor quality and was generally hard to make out, so people likely wondered when a better version would be put online. So here it is, two very clear (and much bigger) versions of the Mario 3D World box art:
