The Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/WiiU cover art doesn't exemplify what a good cover illustration should be, but why?

I bet it was made (especially the Wii U cover) in 10 minutes, it's so generic.

The Wii U version is an 80% replica of Super Smash Bro Brawl, just with light blue. Even half of the characters on the cover are the same....

Samus is the focal point on the Wii U version which is kind of weird.

Clearly a sign of a new Metroid on Wii U

Wtf? Running out of thigs to talk about? Heres a article for you, why smash bros is a good game.

It's definitely better than modern day FPS cover arts. Those basically show a soldier holding a gun.

And these Smash covers do that as well, they just show the characters in an angry state, in front of some ugly blue and red backgrounds.

They are ugly. Hard to say that when last year Nintendo lanched one of the most beautiful covers in a while http://img3.wikia.nocookie....

The Tropical Freeze box art is also cool if you ask me. http://img1.wikia.nocookie.... Detail on fur is amazing.

But these Smash covers? They're horrible, many of us could have done them.

I don't think anyone's been more right. I mean look at this.

But Wolfenstein was awesome, and so is Smash, which is why nobody complained about their cover arts.... Until now.

:/ that's random. Whatever man...

I don't see a problem with it. It really shows that it's bringing together all Nintendo's biggest and best characters for the ultimate showdown. What would you rather have, Mario in generic brown head held down but eyes pointing up? This cover art is much more pleasing to the eye and draws attention.
