    I suspected they would be in a similar size to PSP/Saturn cases and was right (anyone could have come to the same conclusion anyway).

    It also looks like Nintendo may be getting rid of those stupid and pointless Health & Safety booklets no one reads and the manuals will be back, well.. sort of. It's the reversible cover. :P

    Maybe, but there seems to be clips in the box for something. The booklets might be in the official releases.

    Those clips are just to hold the box closed.
    Edit: Actually, you're right, there are clips above the cartridge slot that I missed. I guess they're for holding ads and health & safety booklets.

    There is? Must have missed it.

    Why do they include it? Does anyone read the Health & Safety guides?

    I think for legal reasons so that they're not liable if someone gets a seizure or whatever.

    Makes sense. "We made sure to make it crystal clear... in our Health & Safety guide book." :P

    That honestly came to mind. I was also wondering if these were recycled boxes, like I think the 3DS boxes are.

    Am I the only one who thinks they're catastrophically ugly? Just a red fucking square in the corner, and combine that with TRANSPARENT CASES, AWFUL combination..Especially after the Wii U had really nice cases IMO, especially the ones with the dark blue gradient..

    I agree, they do look a bit lacking in style and design which remind me of the Xbox One bland spines (grey and usually normal text). The console logo placement isn't too bad although I wouldn't have minded a GC-type again (WiiU did it previously). But I digress, they look fairly fine to me.

    I do wonder if the European Switch covers will carry on the tradition of coloured triangles.. we'll see.
