With the change of the generation always comes a change in the color of the DVD box. The Xbox 360 went from translucent green to a darker color and the Wii went from white to teal with the Wii U. However, there are always notable exceptions, at least within the Nintendo line up. New Super Luigi U last year saw physical release in a nice green box, while New Super Mario Bros. on Wii was originally introduced in a red box. It looks like Mario Kart 8 could be getting the same treatment, as the box art on the official Nintendo page for the game features the official box art wrapping a red box.
Not too bad, though given the color of the Wii U logo at the top, a teal box might have been preferable for some. Mario Kart 8 will be releasing on May 30, 2014 here in North America.
