Game changer! ;)

Most of the Mario games have been released with red cases, so maybe they wanted to continue the tradition.

What I don't like though, is that they didn't change the color of the banner to red. They changed it to green for Super Luigi U, so it's not that they can't. It's a minor detail, but I don't like the way it looks.

Never understood why Nintendo went with a light blue for their consoles "colour" instead of red.

I always picture red for Nintendo, probably because of their logo.

Blue - Playstation
Green - Xbox
Red - Nintendo

I love when box art have a different colour separating them from the rest although the light blue surrounding the "Wii U" at the top of the box art spoils it

Honestly i think they should re-brand the wii u with the red color.
-Foxtrot  +   150d ago
Yeah, I don't see why Nintendo didn't do that with the Wii U

Black is so over done, a colourful console such as a red Wii U would of stood out from the rest.

Nintendo should do that with their next console.

I would rather they made all of their systems purple like the GameCube the purple they used looked so cool.
NukaCola  +   150d ago
Nintendo should bring back the grey or purple.

The Red Stands out.

It's going to be for the games that sell a lot or are of higher quality like 3DWorld & Mario Kart 8.

I'm assuming eventually there will be a Smash Brothers Red Box as well.

Helps them stand out.

Just like PS2 back in the day "Greatest Hits"
LAWSON72  +   150d ago
I believe the red box is to signify a game starring Mario (and co). Games that are apart of the so called greatest hits would have some kind of indication label to go with it. Nintendo actually has a branding for that kind of game called Nintendo selects though I dont think it has been used on Wii U

The red looks weird since the Wii U border is blue. That's why I prefer the blue cases since it matches.
3-4-5  +   150d ago
Yea true, but it seems like kind of the same thing, but only for Mario games.
LAWSON72  +   150d ago
I have always thought
PS as red (i just always recall the ps3 as red)
Nintendo as blue
and of course Xbox as green

PS3 covers were red at one point. It also had the Spiderman font for Playstation.

I agree. I think a new red Wii U is in order when Smash comes out. Though I wonder how people would have reacted if the default color for Wii U had been red.
ScottyHoss  +   150d ago
I think a new GameCube is due, we need a powerful traditional gaming console from Nintendo, no more gimmicks, and they should make the cases RED or old school purple with a controller resembling a cube controller. I miss good Nintendo :(
Geobros  +   150d ago
Wow!!! That colour fits better...:o
Summons75  +   150d ago
Don't change the color. The light blue looks so nice. Save red for the really special games or the Nintendo Selects again.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   150d ago
If they do that, Nintendo better change the Wii U border to red.
GamingSinceThe80s  +   150d ago
Is SMB3DW not a special enough game to earn a red case to you?
Summons75  +   150d ago
Well no but why start changing everything when the light blue is already branded and well known.
Metallox  +   150d ago
Why do they keep the blue color of the Wii U logo part? It makes an ugly contrast with the red line.
bass4g  +   150d ago
It's because that's not the original box colour and/or because they make them with blue boxes as well.
randomass171  +   150d ago
Default Wii U packaging? It really does clash but at least the case itself looks nice.
HollywoodLA  +   150d ago
Red, the color of communism. Where is your hammer and sickle?

It's like on the Wii where new super Mario brothers had a red box.
ritsuka666  +   150d ago
Best game of WII U IMO.
knifefight  +   150d ago
Huge news. Earth shattering. Don't know what I'll do now; this changes all of my plans.
dillhole  +   150d ago
Breaking: Nintendo to re-issue entire Wii-U catalog in red - buy them all again.
LOL_WUT  +   150d ago
I prefer the blue cases they look a lot cooler ;)
MegaRay  +   150d ago
This will defiantly boost sales /s
What next? Sony now selling Infamous in black case-rumor?
