Those who grew up in the NES, SNES and Game Boy eras will know that the iconic Nintendo logo was usually a mixture of red and white. During the DS and Wii period the company didn't exactly abandon this logo, but tended to favour to a plainer grey-on-white colour scheme - possibly to reflect a newfound maturity or sense of sophistication.

It would appear that the industry veteran is moving back towards to "classic" branding, though. Nintendo of America's Twitter profile now uses the famous white-on-red version of the logo, and this has been carried across to the company's YouTube account as well. The last two videos uploaded to the Nintendo YouTube account feature the classic logo in the bottom-left corner of their thumbnail images - a recent change.

We don't know about you, but seeing that logo really takes us back to the good old days. Hopefully this rebranding will somehow be reflected on NX as well.
