After the Snake Pass game icon debacle which ran to 16 pages of annoyance and jokes on NeoGAF we thought we had seen an end to unconventional game icons on the Nintendo Switch. We overlooked Sonic Mania's rather minimalist icon as the game itself was so good.
But now the can of worms has been opened up again with the imminent arrival of Lego Worlds on the Switch later this week. A few lucky Lego fans have got their hands on the game early and have voiced their displeasure about the choice of game icon:

As we said above, we don't hate the icon; it's just the lack of consistency with other Switch game icons which makes it look a bit out of place. Then again, there are bigger events taking place in the world right now and a game icon looking "a bit different" is perhaps bottom of the pile.
