Wii U Box Art Breaks Cover
Posted by Damien McFerran
Possible final design spotted on Amazon
It seems almost childish to get excited about box artwork in this age of digital downloads and on-demand gaming, but we're not going to let that stop us from squealing with delight at the supposed final designs posted up on the Canadian arm of Amazon.
Listings for Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed III and Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth have appeared on Amazon.ca, complete with lovely box artwork sporting a distinctive blue and yellow Wii U 'swoosh' at the top.
Of course, there's every chance that these covers aren't final, and Nintendo could tinker with the look before the console launches some time later this year. However, the swoosh-like effect is perfectly in keeping with previous Nintendo box formats, and it's hard to imagine Amazon going to all the trouble of mocking up a cover when they could just use existing assets.
What do you think of the design? Are you a fan of the blue and yellow colour scheme? The comments section awaits...
