What are your thoughts on Nintendo's new box art for Wii U?.
I'm not keen, I think these Gamecube style tops encroach upon the artwork too much because of the colour changes - the black seen on GC titles made them far more palatable. I think the slight band of yellow alongside the blue looks feminine, it almost implies a casual Wii game. I can also see the yellow clashing with some box art.
“Nintendo has finalized the design of the Wii U game box art, and many of our publishing partners have already incorporated it into their own game packaging. We are seeing those game packages online as retailers are starting to showcase their games. For details about a specific game’s artwork, please contact the game’s publisher. Nintendo-published game boxes will appear shortly with placeholder logos, and then ultimately with the final artwork for each game.” - Nintendo representative
