Update: Did Target, Amazon, and Best Buy just reveal the Wii U box art?


Wii U software box art

According to retail websites, Target, Amazon, andBest Buy, have updated their catalog with the final Wii U software box art. At this time, the final box art designs have not been confirmed by Nintendo, so it’s quite possible these are just placeholders.

The supposed final designs do resemble that of the Gamecube software box art with the curved Wii U logo portion at the top. In addition, the fairly new Nintendo Network logo is shown on the box.

If these box art designs are indeed true, what are your thoughts? Yay or nay?

[Update] – According to an update from Gametrailers, the box art has been confirmed to be legit by Ubisoft.

Harrison Milfeld is a writer, editor, and freelance journalist from Missouri. Ever since he could walk, Harrison has been an avid fan of the world of Nintendo. For years, he has purchased every one of the company's subsequent products (yes, including the Virtual Boy and eReader). It wasn't until he was a young teen when he bought a PS2 that he began to embrace cross-console relations, a decision he doesn't regret. When he's not gaming, Harrison is looking to break into the magazine journalism industry and realize his dream of becoming a features reporter.


  1. I dig it. Call me a fanboy, but no matter what anyone else says, I like the name ‘Wii U’, I like the design of the logo (especially the ‘U’ part – mirrors the tablet controller screen), and I like the clean, simple way this treatment frames the name while leaving plenty of room for the cover art itself. Yay!

  2. Definitely a yay!

  3. If so that is really simple and effective.

  4. Looks good to me!

  5. I dislike the colour. It screams for attentions.
    It should be as clean and basic as possible. That colour will distract your eyes from the box cover shown below it, especially when they don’t match well. Like in the box art pictured here.

    Plus, what’s with that colour scheme anyway? Does it reflect the Wii U in any way? And that yellow curve.. Seems to be tacked on for no reason whatsoever.

    The Wii’s and 3DS’s boxart was way more effective in that matter: recognizable, simple and more in the background.

  6. It looks like color changed Gamecube box design.
