I could be wrong, but the image of the box's artwork looks off. The box looks to be at a different angle then the Smash Bros artwork. Possible photoshop job?

Doing a bit of searching, here is the only Super Smash Bros Ultimate bundle I can find that's releasing in Europe.

http://www.siliconera.com/2018/08/08/super-smash-bros-ultimat...

EDIT: The box also doesn't match the style and layout of other "game included" Switch boxes.

Examples below:

https://www.walmart.com/browse/nintendo-switch/nintendo-switc...

There's two distinct styles of box art they use for the Nintendo Switch. If both Joy con are completely snapped into the grip, the grip is to the left and a little in front of the docked system. This is done if the console is not bundled with a game. If the grip is to the right of the docked console (exclusive to the "game bundled in" consoles) then the right joy con is not fully snapped into the grip. And the game's art doesn't usually cover the entire box, only the right half and part of the upper left of the box.

The Mario Tennis Aces bundled console is the only exception. But it too has the controller on the right, with the right joy con partly removed from the grip. Even the positioning of the console and controller in relationship to each other doesn't match normal Switch box are.

Yeah Cobalt, I guess we will see... that you just used the exact same image, didn't provide a link to your source, and the image you're using has several elements which make it seem suspicious. And that's besides the fact that there's zero evidence beyond that image that your claim is correct.

So, can you provide a link to the site you're getting your information from? And no, putting a hosted image of what may be a photoshopped Switch box isn't the same as providing a link to your source.

And now that I'm looking at it closer, that image isn't just blurry. It has a texture to it almost like it's created by needlepoint. Now I'm really curious about your source.

It seems likely that we will get something like this. Whether this is it, is up for debate.

I would not be surprised to see a pack that includes the adapter and a Gamecube controller as well. Although they may instead do a pack with the game, adapter, and controller separate from the system too.

@ValhallaOutcast Coolbeans. I already have an adapter and controller so I don't need it. But nice to know it's an option for people. Original Gamecube controllers in decent shape really still aren't too hard to come by.

Well, it's a photo of a screen displaying a blurry image.

You know, pictures like that are always legit.

Look at the picture closer. No, really. Open the pic's source image in another tab/window and look at the enlarged image. It's not even a blurry image. It looks like a cross stitching project. The 2nd image shown is even worse. If you pay attention, you'll notice that it actually is a needlepoint or cross stitching picture. You can see the edge of the frame, at which point the bumpy 'blurriness' stops in it's tracks.

Which means they are photos of a piece of artwork using thread and fabric, not photos of a computer screen or catalogue.

In the 2nd image the 'expanded' character images are clearly photoshopped in since they are smooth images instead of the bumpy image of the actual framed artwork. Those images are problably taken from official posters or something, since the background images behind the characters doesn't match the 'box art' they are supposedly a zoomed in view of.

There may end up being a "game bundled with console" edition. Other big first party releases ended up doing that after all. But it's probably not going to be Europe exclusive if they do. And the OP's images are unlikely to be box art for such a release.

It just looks like regular old screen pixels to me.

The third image is clearly supposed to "reveal" who the characters are, although that's completely redundant, since it's clearly just the game's normal boxart.

Anyway, my other post was sarcastic in nature. Just to clear that up.

Right up until you realize the 2nd image has a frame shown in the image, and that the 'blurriness' ends abruptly at the frame.

For those who still don't believe me and think it's a picture taken of a computer screen, here is a picture taken of a computer screen to compare it to.

Screens have frames. They tend to end at some point.

Anyway, I'm sure you're not seriously suggesting someone took the time to cross stitch an elaborate picture with the intention of faking a Nintendo switch bundle, and made it look exactly, and professionally, like a computer screen, backlight, rainbow shine, and all.

People have done stranger things. Beyond the image it's self having several elements that look off, it does look more like a piece of art using needle and thread when you look closely. If it is something a person made using cross stitch, it's dang impressive work.

It might have been made with Paint, but the bumps have too much depth to them to be just pixel grid lines in Paint.

EDIT: I'm also unable to find any level of zoom that would account for the bumpiness. And modern computers don't use that large of pixels anyway. By the time you could see each individual pixel on the screen you'd be unable to make out any of the details anyway due to being too close.

I find it fascinating how people are willing to spend time on debating the reason why something is fake, even if everyone agrees it's fake and the OP is long gone

The screen was taken DIRECTLY from a CRT monitor.

Where does it come from lol?

No source = just another one of those fake leaks, and I don't see the point in discussing that...

@Octane

It comes from a French store, this is the only thing that I can say...
