Update: Nintendo confirm designs
Speaking to Kotaku today, Nintendo of America have confirmed the provisional box-art designs posted by retailers this week.
Nintendo has finalized the design of the Wii U game box art, and many of our publishing partners have already incorporated it into their own game packaging. We are seeing those game packages online as retailers are starting to showcase their games. Nintendo-published game boxes will appear shortly with placeholder logos, and then ultimately with the final artwork for each game.
What do you think of the Wii U boxart template and design?
Original story - 09/08
Retail giants Target and Amazon have started to populate their catalogues with potential Wii U boxart.
The design boasts a GameCube-esque curve at the top in a vibrant blue palette, yellow trim and white panels along the spine - almost a hybrid between the current Wii and its predecessor.
Games with online functionality appear to don the Nintendo Network logo as well.
With two retailers displaying the artwork, it is likely that these are the final, or near-final designs for the Wii U's retail image. Perhaps Ubisoft placeholders. What do you think of the look?
