    Two places are now listing Wii U titles with boxarts. This isn't anything new as many have been before, however these do look a bit more legit.

    From Target:

    From Amazon Canada:
    http://www.amazon.ca/Assassins-Creed-3-Trilingual-WiiU/dp/B0088X67EY/ref=sr_1_6?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1344303899&sr=1-6

    Of course this marked rumour until Nintendo themselves show what they look like. Also game prices there are $49.99 Canadian dollarsfor Avengers, $59.99 for ACIII (US & Canadian dollars) & $39.99 for Just Dance 4 (US dollars).

    Release dates vary from 1st November to 20th November...Target lists most of its Wii U games for 31st December 2025...yeah. Obviously price and dates could be speculative.

    I like the boxart, it's distinctive enough from Wii titles (unlike the 3DS titles were to DS) and it doesn't put too much crap on the front.

    If it's real, they look better than the wii box art.

    I dunno why, but i hated the look of wii games. Its part of why I hardly bought any games...i didn't feel much from displaying them.

    At neogaf, people are complaining about the yellow line. I really didn't think it was that serious.

    The yellow doesn't really match the Wii U's colors but that's just nitpicking; these might not even end up being the final cases used anyways.

    I didn't notice it until now, can't say it's anything bad at all.

    I think that the shown case art looks pretty nice, hopefully Nintendo will use this kind of art and the blue cases are nice too.

    I actually think that the little yellow line looks really good as well.

    I hope these are official since they look different from Wii cases, should avoid consumer confusion this way.

    I preferred the Wii design, but I like that they've alternated back to the GC style and not gone completely different. I was really hoping they'd go for a blu-ray sized case, like with the PS3. DVD boxes are so 10 years ago.

    If you didn't mention that, I wouldn't have noticed. LOL. Didn't have any gripe regarding Wii's or 3DS' boxarts to start with. Liking these ones too :) Maybe my standard is just too low..... O____o

    I think it'd look better without the yellow line. Just the blue with the logo would be alright.

    I like the boxart. But they yellow line clashes with the color. Other than that it's good, I like it!

    I tried to imagine the box without yellow line, my guess is that it'll look a bit more boring. >_> But yeah you know, it's your opinion and I respect it.

    Is somebody able to edit one of the covers and remove the yellow line so we can compare both?

    Edit: Yellow line presents a smile :)

    Neogaf saves the day.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    They have other changes there too.

    Blue and yellow are meant to be complementary colors.
