Are hot dogs sandwiches? Switch owners settle the debate again

Yoshi gets axed from the Smash Bros. Ultimate boxart in Germany due to USK logo
Nintendo shared the gorgeous boxart for Smash Bros. Ultimate this week. It’s mostly the same around the world, though there is one exception from Germany.
For the most part, the packaging design is the same. However, there is one omission: Yoshi. The character is gone here due to a sizable USK rating logo taking up a good deal of the real estate. The logo is where Pikachu would be, but the character has been preserved and moved up slightly while Yoshi was taken off entirely.

Here’s a look:
Breadman says that there is a reason for the somewhat poor performance. Later on, future versions will be written with a different base.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze’s boxart has a couple of random differences in North America and Europe
The boxart for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is mostly the same in North America and Europe. There are a couple of differences though, and both are pretty random.
The first difference concerns the positioning one Donkey Kong’s foot. Nintendo also went with a slightly different approach to the text pointing out the new Funky Kong mode. We have a look at both boxart versions above.
Fun fact: the foot positioning was actually the same for the original Wii U release. Fans seem to be noticing it more on Switch, however.
