New Super Mario Bros. Wii PAL box art Europeans missed out on the Metroid Prime Trilogy tin box that NOA released in the U.S. While it isn’t as cool, Nintendo of Europe seem to be trying to make up for it with a New Super Mario Bros. Wii Limited Tin Edition. is taking pre-orders for it now.


No word on this being released in North America yet. It wasn’t announced during the recent roundtable with Miyamoto either. Nintendo seem to be pushing NSMB particularly hard in general though. Even the regular box art stands out from other Wii games.

    I don’t like it. It’s going to mess up the finely lined collection on my shelf. Also, it costs a whopping 15£ more. Insane.

    Unless it contains some totally awesome extra, I’d rather go with the regular edition. The red cover is actually kinda cool. Did you know the PAL version of Motorstorm for PS2 comes in an orange casing? (too bad it’s 50hz only)

  • I’m still confused as to why they wanted the whole box art to be read, I mean who do they think they are? Bono?

  • Isn’t the case supposed to be red for North America?
    And a gold Wii logo.

    Personally, I don’t like those tin cases.
    I find it’s very difficult to remove the game discs from the tin cases.
    At least, it is for the FFXII tin case. I swear I’m going to crack the disc every time I try to take it out of the case.

      Agree, while the LE metal case looks nice (FFXII, Vesperia, Naruto Ninja Storm, etc) as a special collectible, it’s so damn hard to pull out the game disc, especially when there are 2 discs (usually soundtrack) and one is on top of the other.. When I get a game w/ metal case, usually I take it out once (carefully and painstakingly) and try not to put it back till I finish it it. My FFXII disc is still in a separate CD case since I am still no done.

      For those who are pre-ordering New Super Mario Wii, Amazon has a good deal w/ $10 for your next game purchase, so it’s like $36.99 since I’ll buy my next game from them anyway.

      This one looks okay.. I just pre-ordered the new Pixar “Up” blu-ray from Best Buy and got an additional metal case.

    The collector edition case looks like a money box

      DS prints money. Wii eats it up. Supply and demand.
