Nintendo Switch games box art style revealed – see it here

The packshots for many Nintendo Switch titles have been released, showing off the new simpler box design.

Now that we have a better idea of the Nintendo Switch’s launch line-up, we can begin to make out the finer details about each game.

The style of the box art is one such detail. The box arts for many of the console’s launch window titles show the red logo, but the sleeves strangely don’t have a unique colour like the Wii U’s distinct blue.

As you can see in these pack shots for Zelda: Breath of the Wild, ARMS, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the games all come in white boxes.

This could be a placeholder, but given how final many of the details shared earlier seemed, it’s unlikely. It’s a shame though you won’t be able to tell if a game on the shelf is a Switch game or not at a glance.
