Rumor has it that Nintendo has started to sell Super Mario 3D World in a red case, much like Mario Kart 8.
Stop the presses!SMB3DW now comes in a red case!News story of the century right here.
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.
And yet it got you to not only click on the headline ... but to comment as well. I would say ... Article from nintendoeverything.com 1 Gameingsincethe80s 0
LoadedKilp,It was a joke,relax fellow gamer bro.I was just pointing out in the grand scheme of thing's this is a very small slow news day story.I didn't call it stupid or irrelevant.Why so serious?lol
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.
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.
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"
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.
Yea true, but it seems like kind of the same thing, but only for Mario games.
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.
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 :(
Wow!!! That colour fits better...:o
Don't change the color. The light blue looks so nice. Save red for the really special games or the Nintendo Selects again.
If they do that, Nintendo better change the Wii U border to red.
Is SMB3DW not a special enough game to earn a red case to you?
Well no but why start changing everything when the light blue is already branded and well known.
Why do they keep the blue color of the Wii U logo part? It makes an ugly contrast with the red line.
It's because that's not the original box colour and/or because they make them with blue boxes as well.
Default Wii U packaging? It really does clash but at least the case itself looks nice.
Red, the color of communism. Where is your hammer and sickle?
Mario is Stalin.
Next episode of Game Theory...
It's like on the Wii where new super Mario brothers had a red box.
Best game of WII U IMO.
Huge news. Earth shattering. Don't know what I'll do now; this changes all of my plans.
Breaking: Nintendo to re-issue entire Wii-U catalog in red - buy them all again.
I prefer the blue cases they look a lot cooler ;)
This will defiantly boost sales /s What next? Sony now selling Infamous in black case-rumor? lol this is pathetic even for n4g
Not to be a downer or any of that but why should we care?
Bit late this only launched in oct/nov after all.
Super Luigi 3D World confirmed.
