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
Half-Life 3 confirmed
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. http://upload.wikimedia.org... But Wolfenstein was awesome, and so is Smash, which is why nobody complained about their cover arts.... Until now.
Why No one Cares!!
:/ 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.
Take out peach add megaman and take out wii fit trainer and add pacman id be happy.
You know, I'm surprised Megaman isn't on the cover.
What the actual fudge?!? I have seen people complain about almost everything Smash bros has done. Now people are complaining about the darn boxart of the games?!? WHAT!?! It looks good. Even if it did not, why the fudge does it matter? Have these people ever heard the term don't judge a (book) game by it's cover? Super Mario bros 3 is known to be one of the best games ever and yet all it has is tanooki Mario flying in a yellow background. So stop complaining and play the game. It is not like most of us are going to be staring at the box for hours a day. -.-
Its how it goes the wiiu is doing good its only natural ppl try to find something negative its sad really
Well I love nintendo and i love SSB but i honestly think the cover art is bad on the wii u version. And I don't think you have to have a big hate for Nintendo to think that. Although a cover is really important for casuals, - which are unknowing of the game before they see it in stores - in order for them to pick it up and see what it is. But honestly I don't care about the cover if the game is good (and it is). And I do think it will make casuals interested when they see it in stores, even if I don't like it myself.
It really is an example of painting a bad image or trying to get bad pr going so things can not gain popularity. Or better yet some did say any pr is good pr. Trolling at best.
It's exactly what you'd expect from a brawler and good marketing...they wont hide all the nintendo mascots for the sake of a "good" cover or better design. It's actually genius bc any kid who sees it will point to it and at least name a few characters along with the words: I want it! lol
I was thinking that too but i also think they should have banked in on pacman and megaman being in, you see a mom or dad see pacman om the cover with mario and boom nostalgia might even buy a wiiu, its a stretch but believe it our not thays how alot of casuals buy their stuff heck even me sometimes
Its not the best cover ever, but then again, its nowhere near the worst. Also, to be fair, show me a cover/sleeve (this gen) which betters Nintendo's SM3DW furry limited edition sleeve...
Looks fine to me. I don't play games because they have great boxart. Never Did. It matters even less these days as most games can be downloaded. Who cares what the box looks like. lol
It could be better But, it's just a boxart, so meh My biggest complaint would be the title Super Smash Bros. for WiiU ..... Is that still the placement title or the actual title? Again, not a big deal, but just kinda ... silly Super Smash Bros. Super Smash Bros. Melee Super Smash Bros. Brawl Super Smash Bros. for WiiU Okay then :p
Its the final title. Kind of like Little Big Planet Vita Its not like theyre out of synonyms for "fight" either. Super Smash Bros. Tussle Super Smash Bros. Conflict Super Smash Bros. Wrangle Super Smash Bros. Altercation Super Smash Bros. Be at Odds with
Super Smash Bros OPPOSITION Drops mic...
I think it's kinda clever, since it's the fourth game and it's called smash bros for (4) 3ds/wii U
If there is nothing else to say that's negative about one of Nintendo's most perfect series we must.....(drum roll if you please) !!! COMPLAIN ABOUT BOX ART!! This is just another shot at Nintendo. People can't complain about graphics,fps, out gameplay in this case, so in order to rain on Nintendo's parade, they've sank this low. I mean come on when Is the last time we've seen articles complaining about box art?
Not sure if the author has seen bad, but this is bad: http://media.ign.com/games/...
Sad because that was a good game too.
That cover is clearly homophobic and racist!
This game is getting so over-analysed. No wonder Sakurai was under so much stress.
Every character is launching themselves forward. But what are they jumping at!
Why is everyone getting offended at the mention of bad cover art? If you don't care or "don't play games for their cover art" that's awesome. Some of us are designers and have an eye for these sort of things. Is anyone doubting Smash is going to be amazing? No. The Pikmin cover is an example of a great game cover. Some people just need to grow up.
So everyone who has bought games based on the cover? Last time I bought a game the cover was the last thing I thought about. Lets see i watched E3 videos, Watched youtube videos, Looked at reviews and last but not least flipped it over and looked the back of the box.
