A few months ago Maximum Games revealed the box art for its upcoming Wii U game, Jett Tailfin Racers, whilst also showing off what was believed to be the template to be seen on all Wii U retail releases. Many speculated that it was just a placeholder, yet hopes were dashed as Amazon Germany put Darksiders II up for pre-order, with its case bearing the same generic Wii U template.
Recently, Amazon Canada temporarily made Wii U versions of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III and Marvel Avengers available to pre-order, featuring a swish new Wii U template, as seen to your left.
What do you think of the blue and yellow design? It certainly addresses concerns that some may not be able to distinguish Wii and Wii U games.
It’s worth bearing in mind that this could also be a placeholder designed by Amazon, but would they really make such an effort when the official box art is sure to be revealed in the near future (if not already)?
