So this was posted on a Twitter which has since been taken down but someone in Australia opened up the case for Super Bomberman R and gave us a good look at the interior and the cartridge.



Reseal me and sell as new if old.

The interior looks really cool. So many lost opportunities by so many companies by not doing something like this with their games.

Seeing how small the cart is in the box makes the box look daft and at the same time the box was not big to even start with.

If you're referring to the Japanese ones a few weeks back those did not have cartridges inside of them and also they are retailer placeholder boxes. Those of which can have some small differences with the final retail versions (for example the back cover might have more information on pre-order bonuses).

I do like the cases but I feel like they coulda also brought back the landscape cases ala JP GBA cases or the N-Gage:



I think my favourite part is the uniform red spines though.

i shouldn't be impressed by such things in 2017 but its kinda mindblowing to me the size of the cards, considering how big the games will get eventually

N-Gage boxes were awesome. Heck, I loved my N-Gage. N-Gage did nothing wrong!

The N-Gage did plenty wrong. It was ahead of its time on a few things as well and It had a few fun titles.

Some people have theorised that it's due to the the idea that some people will identify smaller boxes with inferiority. The switch cases aren't much smaller in height than blu ray cases so won't look too different from the spine when browsing in a shop.

Manuals now days are usually just a 1 page slip, multiple Switch boxes seem to have these printed on the reversible cover (not Bomberman but other games seem to)

They're $40-$60 games. If they make the boxes too small, they'd be easier to steal and retailers might not like that.

Yeah I've never seen a cartridge look so "exposed" before. I hope that doesn't impact durability. Seems like they'll be far easier to break if exposed to the elements, etc.

I didn't even know that was a thing till you pointed it out. Should look sharp on my shelf.

If Bomberman has inside art, I'll have to wager this is in fact standardized. Really cool.

More pins/contact points allow faster transfer speeds. That's my guess.

I read elsewhere that the Switch carts are optimized for fast read speeds, and they don't allow writing on them (like 3DS/DS carts for saves for example) to further optimize them for faster read speeds. This is good, lower loading times.

Wonder if they will have the odd game that bucks the red spine trend a la Mario Maker.

Yup, it's probably what makes the loading for The Legend of Zelda so quick.

More contact points makes sense, but that doesn't explain why a individual one needs to be so long.

Would've preferred a case the size of the ones 3DS games come in. Artwork is lovely but I have finite shelf space and I'll be damned if I ever go digital.

Shame you can't update carts with small patches though.

They're similar in size to PSP cases, really not that big.

Nintendo still might in their own titles, but digital manuals for everything is the likely scenario.

Psp discs were way larger than the switch cards though, it's a real silly waste of plastic, humans are so dumb with waste it's so annoying.

More contact area per pin which leads to lower electrical resistance. Might be necessary depending on operating frequency.
