With rumours about Nintendo’s next big move already running rife, this latest morsel of information will no doubt add some extra fuel to the fire.

Across the US, eagle-eyed individuals have spotted a rather interesting change at local retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target, noting the Wii U & 3DS game library sections have been merged together under one big Nintendo banner. In addition to this are banners of Nintendo’s most iconic characters – all of which appear to have had new artistic makeovers.

The photos also show a white Nintendo logo with a red backing – reportedly to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Mario. However, this has led to speculation that Nintendo may return to a more classic look in the future. The company originally changed its logo from the trademark red to grey in 2008 to support the Wii and DS generation at the time.

Of course, all of this may have absolutely nothing to do with the future plans of Nintendo including their 'NX' device or any upcoming titles, and could potentially just be the company updating its retail image to be as eye-catching as possible this holiday period.
