Nintendo Switch game box art

Splatoon larger scale?

Also..that seems like a lot of excess packaging, especially if it's just the tiny cart in there. Kind of odd.

What do the cartridges look like?

I really wish they did a horizontal logo. I don't get the why the switch icon can't be on the side and the name on the right...

Especially in multiplatform games, the logo looks so small compared with PS and XO.

It would look so much better in red. ��

Wha? People asking for colored boxes and bigger company logos?

These are so nice and refreshing with their minimal branding that doesn't compete or clash with the actual cover art.

And clear cases are the best. They allow for interior art.


PSP cases are the current king of all game boxes. Hopefully the Swtich can take that throne with its subtle branding. Loving what I see so far.

As someone that really wanted to go all digital for this gen and now begrudgingly accepts that he'll have to get a mix of physical and digital, I'm so glad these cases look great both in design and size.

I think Nintendo has hit on some good aesthetics for the Switch. That's one mistake they didn't make this time.

PSP cases were great. I'm excite.

Also, that Every Extend Extra cover art brings back pleasant memories.

Love the art work on a lot of the titles but why are these boxes so big? There are 3DS sized carts in them.

The Switch box arts are on point. Everything looks good so far. Breath of the Wild cover is my favorite (all regions are good). Disgaea 5 cover looks nice too. Surprising it looks so bright, usually those covers feel a bit darker. Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe both nailed it. Isaac cover is exciting because I don't think any iteration of it has been released physically. Great game too. Been dying to try out Afterbirth+ so that'll be a nice addition of my games to play on the go.

The Breath of the Wild art is stunning. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is also very, very good.

If nothing else, Nintendo has been KILLING box art over the last few years for their high profile console releases.

That gold Wind Waker box art is a travesty though....

But by in large, I absolutely agree. It's one of the things that kinda keeps me buying physical - that's just shit that I want to pull out and look at once in a while...

Hopefully the spines keep the same font like the Xbox One cases.

I'm actually happy that the Master version of BOTW was gone when I went to preorder, ended up with the one without the statue and I think I like the box with the art rather than the black box the Master ships in.

The logo on the face of these are a design travesty, holy shit. So jarring, contrasts with everything, distracting use of color. Every design faux pas. Literally look likes like someone slapped a square JPG of the logo into the corner, wtf. People like this?! Or are people just happy about the spines?

My only thing is that I wish the cases were red. That way the logo would sync up with everything better. I still think it's okay though and the cover arts are looking great so far.

If you're a Prime member, you get 20% off all video game pre-orders before launch and purchases during the first two weeks of release.

That EU Zelda cover is a travesty.

Thankfully Nintendo Australia seems to agree and went with the NA cover.



Also, those clean red spines are fantastic. A shelf of Switch games is gonna be classy.
